The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has found that the small business confidence has hit the biggest low since the financial crash in 2011. The small business confidence was measured at -9.9, in their Small Business Index (SBI). The uncertainty that comes from Brexit is taking a toll on small businesses in the UK resulting in them being very unsure of what’s to come.
With rising domestic costs, small businesses are really feeling the squeeze and are struggling to survive. In the latest Federation of Small Business (FSB) quarterly Small Business Index, it was found that a record number of businesses are planning to either downsize, sell or close their small business in the upcoming months.
