The monthly Business
Trends Report by accountants BDO, pulling together the findings of all the
major UK business studies, showed output in March rose by the second fastest
pace on record with employment prospects at the highest since 2008.
A study of small and medium sized firms (SMEs) by commercial finance provider GE Capital showed they planned to take on 660,000 new staff in the coming year, 26 per cent more than at the same time last year.
It also showed confidence among SMEs stronger than anywhere in Europe, including Germany.
