17% increase in number of Scots planning to start a new business as Scottish economy strengthens


From the Scottish Business News Network, based on a Bank of Scotland survey at the end of last year:

‘An increasing number of Scottish adults can see themselves starting their own business, according to the latest How Scotland Lives research from Bank of Scotland. With the prospect of starting a business enabling Scots to create their own success and take on more responsibility, research from the Bank shows that almost equal numbers of men and women expect to start-up in business in the next year.  57% of men and 43% of women are looking to start their own business.’


This is another example from numerous indicators of the increasingly robust nature of the Scottish economy, reported here. See, for example:

Business booms in Scotland under SNP-rule

77% of Scotland’s small and medium-sized businesses report success as Scottish Government reports record numbers exempt from rates and in the wake of figures revealing much greater signs of distress among rUK businesses.

£226 million given in relief to small businesses in 2017-18 as part of most generous scheme in the UK

40% increase in number of new Scottish businesses mainly under SNP government
