This morning, Enterprise Nation shared a great infographic on their blog which shows there are 281,197 new start-ups in the UK at the mid-point of the year with the vast majority of them (70%) started from home.
Motivations for starting your own business vary from person to person. Some are doing it in their spare time as a second income, others are taking the plunge by turning a long-harboured dream into a reality and others simply have no choice and are forced into it by being unable to find a job.
Whatever the reasons, there is a definite shift in working patterns here in the UK. This is being fuelled by technology with low-cost, high speed broadband, smartphones, apps and cloud-based business software including our own Sage One Accounts (£10 per month) and Sage One Payroll (£5, £10 or £15 per month) services enabling people to manage their entire business online and on the move for very little cost.
With over 33,000 start-ups and small businesses already using our Sage One service, we’re on a mission to help as many new businesses as possible with easy-to-use accounts and payroll software that includes free 24hr online, telephone and email support to increase their chances of survival and growth.
