72% of self-employed workers will be voting according to personal preference, rather than what they think will be best for their business, according to a survey by Intuit Quickbooks.

The poll of 1,000 self-employed workers across the UK reported that only 20% of those surveyed said they would be voting based on business preferences.

Of those surveyed 41.9% are ready to back the ‘remain’ camp, with 41.3% voting for ‘leave’.

82% of self-employed workers will choose to remain self-employed in the case of the UK leaving the EU with 57% of self-employed people believing that in times of economic uncertainty it’s more reliable to be self-employed than a full-time employee.

Rich Preece, Europe vice president and managing director of Intuit QuickBooks, said: “Self-employed is the fastest growing category of worker with nearly five million individuals across the UK.”

He continued, “Their opinions and votes will have a significant impact on the referendum outcome, whether they have made their decision based on personal or business reasons.”

The survey also reported that only 14% of those surveyed believe they have fully prepared their business for a ‘leave’ vote.
