Increase optimism for SMEs ?
Research from MBH Corporation shows 28% of SMEs believe they will make a loss this year, while a third believe they will make a profit. Callum Laing, chief executive of MBH, said that confidence among SMEs is improving as last year only 19% expected to be profitable, while 39% expected to be in the red. He said: "The imminent easing of lockdown restrictions and the success of the vaccination programme point to better times ahead for the SME sector which has been through a torrid time."
