Business Owner Outlook survey

Are you a business owner? What are your challenges and opportunities?

Share your views in BDO’s Business Owner Outlook survey

The Business Owner Outlook survey is an opportunity for you to tell us how it really is, how confident you feel in the current climate and your hopes for the future. 

BDO is proud to work with ambitious and entrepreneurial privately-owned businesses to help them succeed. We are inspired by the people and ideas that drive those businesses forward. We also recognise that they face their own particular set of challenges. 

The survey will provide a valuable snapshot of how the business owner community views the economic and political climate and their future prospects. We will use the findings of the survey to promote policies and initiatives that support business owners.

Completing the survey takes just a few minutes. It asks respondents’ to give their views on the UK economy, the general outlook and recent business performance. Subsequent questions ask about economic and business concerns for the year ahead, as well as key strategies. We also include some topical questions – which this year touch on Brexit.

Our report will be released in late February as part of our ongoing New Economy campaign to promote the interests of the mid-sized businesses that drive the UK economy. The report will include case studies and business owners sharing their goals and concerns.

A series of white papers focused on specific regions and sectors will be published at the same time. These will provide an additional level of useful benchmarking information and insight into how business owners are building and future-proofing their businesses.

If you are a business owner, we want to hear your views.
