Product Description

The landscape of business and trade in the UK is constantly changing. This book explores current statistics, opportunities for small businesses and the outlook for graduates who wish to become self-employed. It also looks at business education, asking whether it is effective and relevant enough in the current economic climate. New ventures such as crowd funding are also considered, alongside the benefits of family-run businesses. And, finally, the second chapter looks at corporate responsibility – from tax scandals to ethics in the workplace.

  • In 2015, there were 5.4 million businesses in the UK. 
  • In 2015, over 99% of businesses are small or medium sized businesses – employing 0–249 people.
