tracked small business debt factoring volumes over previous two years, which
suggests a V’-shaped recovery pointing to trading conditions showing signs of

The first in a series
of quarterly reports aims to reveal key findings about the UK economy and in
particular the recruitment sector, as well as manufacturing, construction,
wholesale and transport industries.

The Business Factors Index,
compiled by leading independent invoice financier Bibby Financial Services,
cites that despite suffering the effects of the recession more recently than

Index tracks small business turnover over the past two years and the trends

interviews conducted with more than 300 business owners across all industries.

Findings from the index are
