20% of those surveyed said that they think Brexit will mean they will be making fewer exports to the EU. 9% cited other reasons for this besides Brexit which included things like currency fluctuations and consumer confidence. 4% said their main concern was having a small pool of talent.

About the survey

As well as Brexit, Pandle’s small business survey posed questions on Making Tax Digital and Self-Assessment to 1,000 SME owners. Overall, opinion has been mostly positive with tax processes becoming easier for 46% of SME owners.
