“Small business owners show a reasonable level of interest in value-added services such as access to accountancy software but few are prepared to pay extra for these benefits. However, as efforts to drive up competition in the market intensify, we can expect to see more diversified offerings emerge that will be designed to suit a range of business needs.”
– Deborah Osguthorpe, Head of UK Financial Services Research
This report examines the following issues:
Entrepreneurship and small business ownership is deemed a vital component of the UK economy. During the recession that followed the 2008 economic crisis, policymakers introduced a number of measures to support small businesses and improve access to finance in order to encourage growth. Many of the schemes have been extended in 2016 to continue this support. The potential customer base for business banking providers continues to grow, but an influx of new challenger banks attempting to gain a share of the market poses a threat to existing incumbents.
