Expert guidance and advice for micro companies
Official government stats tell us that there were 5.5 million UK businesses in 2016. It might surprise you to know that 5.3 million of these businesses – that’s 96% – were micro companies. By ‘micro’ we mean ‘employing up to nine people’. So, given the evidence, we think it’s safe to say that most UK firms are small.
Business Advice, created by our Real Business team, is designed specifically for these companies, most of which have a turnover of under £1m. Whether they have just started out, are still evolving or are more established, they all want to grow.
We help to fill a content void by bringing readers carefully selected news that we think they should know about. We work with experts to put together easy-to-understand tips and guides that will make running their business easier. And we seek out, meet and profile micro enterprises who are sure to inspire.
