These are the areas that businesses are planning to invest in within the next 12 months

57% of businesses are planning to invest in staff within the next 12 months, according to a recent survey conducted by Skipton Business Finance.

This year, following a very challenging time for businesses across the UK, we wanted to find out from our clients how they felt about the future of their businesses. To do this, we asked our clients which areas they were planning to invest in and provided the options of Technology, Staff, Marketing, Premises and New Products or Services. Respondents were able to choose multiple options.
