InterTradereland’s quarterly Business Monitor survey is the largest and most comprehensive business survey on the island covering business owner’s views both Northern Ireland and Ireland from interviews conducted with more than 750 SMEs. It differs from other surveys by feeding directly from telephone interviews conducted with a robust sample of businesses across a range of sectors. It has a lengthy time series of six years and tracks all-island economic indicators such as sales, employment, business outlook and other specific topical issues on a quarterly basis.
The latest quarterly Business Monitor Report (April - June 2016) illustrates, against the backdrop of generally positive business performance, that the outcome of the EU referendum has caught a large majority of businesses on the hop with 96% of businesses in Northern Ireland having no plan in place to deal with the consequences of a ‘leave’ vote. There has also been a great deal of volatility and change in the relative importance of key issues facing businesses in comparison to quarter one. In terms of wider business performance the picture remains generally positive. In Quarter 2, 86% of businesses in Northern Ireland report that they were stable or growing compared to 93% in Ireland.
