Results drawn from interactions made by both the Chamber Membership Team and DIT International Trade Advisors.

Throughout August business conditions do seem to have improved if only modestly. Half of those surveyed have no members of staff currently on furlough and 10% reported an increase in their order books. However, over 40% are still experiencing problems with a lack of sales and one in ten have made redundancy plans.

As we move towards the end of the emergency support packages it is vital that the government consider further support to help firms survive over the months ahead.

Of those surveyed, 49% were micro businesses, 41% small and 10% medium.
