UK SMEs target growth for 2013

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

SMEs in the UK are forecasting job creation, research and development (R&D) investment and market growth over the coming 12 months, new research has revealed.

The annual survey of UK-based growth companies, carried out by mid-market private equity firm ECI, shows that 61% of high growth SMEs are predicting turnover to increase by more than 11% in the next 12 months with 86% forecasting growth of more than 6%.

However only 16% of respondents felt that the coalition government’s policies were having a positive impact on business this year compared to 47% of those asked the same question in 2011.

And although confidence would appear to be high overall among respondents 64% said that access to finance continued to be a key barrier to growth while 27% said that access to human capital was hampering expansion.
