The findings of new research carried out by the University of St Andrews on the potential impact of Brexit on Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) have just been announced.

 

The study, the first of its kind, analysed results from the UK Government’s Longitudinal Small Business Survey.  Following the result of the referendum, the UK government inserted a number of Brexit-related questions into the survey, enabling this analysis.

 

The research discovered that concerns about Brexit are not felt uniformly across UK SMEs, but that Brexit-related uncertainty is likely to affect larger, export-oriented firms and those operating in hi-tech and service-related industries the most.
