In all the uncertainty, one thing that is certain is many business owners are doing it tough. Our Spring Pulse Check – Spring Pulse 21 – which gives business owners a direct line to Government is ready and waiting for you to tell us whether you’re getting on great, finding things grim or if everything is just ghastly.

Businesses throughout the country are having to cope with the triple whammy of a long lockdown, supply chain woes and rising inflation and we want to know how owners and leaders are managing getting through – or not.

Our quarterly Pulse Check tracks the progress of small to medium businesses and their owners with the results reported directly to Government, informing both policy and understanding.

Hon. Stuart Nash, Minister for Small Business said: “I find them invaluable. My thanks go to members for participating. It informs a lot of what we are doing and gives us insights we wouldn’t otherwise have”.

Your insights also ensure we continue to have the right resources to help you and, by listening to and understanding your perspectives, we can better support your needs.

As we emerge from a bleak winter, it is your chance to let us – and the Government – know how things are. Does the new season bring signs of hope or is there cold comfort in the air?

You’ll find the Spring Pulse Check here –  SpringPulse21  – please let us know how you are doing, the challenges and opportunities you face and what would help you and your business in the months ahead.

The survey will be live until 1 November 2021 with the results available soon after.
