Almost two thirds of UK businesses report higher revenues than last year

Higher revenues for British businesses

The domestic business scene has received some morale-boosting news with 64 per cent of UK companies reporting higher revenues than last year in the eighth annual American Express/CFO Research Global Business and Spending Monitor.

The research’s findings put the UK at the spearhead of a broader European upturn, with 58 per cent of the continent’s businesses reporting higher revenues this year.

According to the study, predictions for the broader economic outlook have become bleaker – with 74 per cent expecting to see modest or substantial economic expansion in the UK over the next 12 months, as compared to 93 per cent last year – yet UK business leaders seem more inclined to spend, as a way of restoring fiscal health, than to cut back: 74 per cent of companies plan for moderate or aggressive spending and investment over the next year.
