Business confidence hits highs
Posted on: 5 September 2021
The Lloyds Bank Business Barometer surveys 1,200 firms each month. It’s found that overall business confidence among UK firms rose to 36 per cent in August, driven by improvements in companies’ trading prospects and expectations of stronger growth in the year ahead.
Increases in confidence were recorded in regions including the South West.
