Kent Invicta is one of six Chambers in the South East that are accredited by British Chambers of Commerce. It regularly contributes about 30% of the South East’s responses to the Quarterly Economic Survey, the largest UK survey of its kind, which is administered on behalf of the BCC by every accredited Chamber. The actual questionnaire, honed over many years to gather a wealth of information, takes only about 3 minutes for a business Proprietor/ MD/ CEO to complete.
The latest findings are shown below, mostly using bar charts (which allow detailed comparison to reveal trends over time) in five groups:
1. Recent Sales and Current Orders
2. Cashflow and Prospects
3. Investment in Staff & Kit
4. Hiring Needs 5. Current Pressures.
