Small businesses in the UK are growing rapidly and make up roughly ninety nine per cent of all UK businesses. A small business is any business with forty nine or less employees. The vast majority however, are mostly micro businesses with less than ten employees and most having no employees at all! Around seventy four per cent of UK businesses, have no employees at all. And a further twenty one per cent have one to nine employees. In total sixty two per cent of all UK businesses are sole traders. So, almost all UK businesses are ‘micro’ and the majority are sole traders. Interestingly, the number of businesses without employees is rising rapidly and is driving the increase in the number of businesses in the UK. You could say that was down to the recession, but it actually began to increase rapidly when the internet became widely available.
