Annual Survey of Small Businesses: Wales 2005

 | Small Business Service | Dec 2006

This is the third edition of the Small Business Service's annual survey, investigating the experiences and opinions of the owners of small businesses in Wales. Fieldwork for this survey took place in the autumn and winter of 2005/06.

The survey set out to:

  • gauge the needs of small businesses, assess their main concerns, and identify the barriers which prevent them from fulfilling their potential
  • act as a sounding board for possible government actions to help small businesses
  • record small businesses' expectations of government business support.
