Starting Up in a Pandemic

There are no two ways about it, the pandemic has affected every business in some form. Furlough, redundancies, closures, new procedures, working from home. All phrases we’ve heard time and time again since March 2020 but it’s not bad for all. Cleaning businesses and those making home gym equipment are examples of sectors that have done well throughout the pandemic. However, people were affected, uncertainty has either forced or spurred people to leave their posts for pastures new and seek to set up their own business. In fact, HMRC figures show that in March 2021, more firms are created than in any other month since records began in 1989 and there isn’t a better country to get started in.

The UK has been named the best country in Europe to start a business, according to City AM. Many factors helped reach this conclusion, including the UK’s large economy and low unemployment rate alongside the lowest cost of starting a business when compared to other European countries. The UK has one of the highest new business densities in the continent, despite the weather, culture and political climate deterring some future business owners.

The increase in start-ups across the country has left many people thinking “if they can do it, why can’t I?” and rightly so. These figures show that now is the perfect time to chase your dream and become your own boss.
