British Small Business Awards 2016: Final shortlist released!

The British Small Business Awards is just two days away; here is the complete shortlist for every category that will be celebrated on the night.

The British Small Business Awards is the leading celebration of the UK’s small business sector, recognising the nation’s best sole traders, micro businesses and small companies – as well as the services providers and advisers that support them.

At the start of 2015, there were an estimated 5.3 million small businesses (defined as those with 0-49 employees) in the UK, accounting for 99.3 per cent of all private sector businesses. The combined annual turnover of small businesses was £1.2 trillion, 33 per cent of all private sector revenue in the UK.

Despite the vast proportion of small businesses among private companies, this vital sector does not get the recognition it deserves. Often described as the ‘engine room of the economy’, it is high time the small business community is commended for its efforts in providing quality products and services to customers and its significant contributions to Britain’s success.

We are delighted to announce the final shortlist for the British Small Business Awards, held on October 20th at the Grand Connaught Rooms, London. We look forward to seeing you there.
