Following quite a lot of doom, gloom, and general panic after the shock result of the EU Referendum, it appears that British business in general is looking quite good. According to research from Begbies Traynor, British businesses across every sector of the British economy have been showing increasing sign of stability. Financial distress is reported to have fallen by a very significant 6% over the summer-autumn quarter, with professional services and construction firms reported to be the big winners among the sectors of British business.
Professional services such as accountants in North Wales , the North West and beyond of course have been quite in demand since the Brexit, as of course more and more business feels the need to use the services a professional can provide in order to keep their heads above water in what they have perceived to be a rather uncertain time.
Whether or not demand for accountants in particular is linked to usual services such as book keeping, payroll, or even other services such as company and personal tax planning or even assistance with transactions and funding, most British business owners seem to be treading a more tentative path. Of course, this is excellent news for most chartered accountants in North Wales and beyond.
The other big winner throughout all of the sectors of British business are construction firms. The number of companies experiencing distress since July has fallen by 11%, which of course is nothing short of remarkable. Construction and civil engineering North Wales of course are benefitting too, and all eyes are turning toward the Government’s upcoming Autumn Statement, as well as confirmation on whether or not the UK will adapt a “hard” or “soft” Brexit strategy.
Of course, what goes up must come down, and challenges of course remain within the long term. Though at the very least, it’s very apparent that the better condition businesses within the UK are in now, the better condition they will be in after the Brexit happens… whether it’s to be a hard or a soft strategy the government undertakes in the immediate future.
