Entrepreneurs are 10% more likely to start a business in January than any other month, according to research from 123Reg.
Yet, starting a new business does not mean instant wealth. There are important decisions to be made. Chief amongst them, where a business should be based. So, if you’re planning to start your own recruitment business soon, there’s lots to bear in mind.
New data, compiled by MoneySuperMarket, has pinpointed which UK cities best cater for budding businesspeople. They looked at factors including: cost per workstation, business insurance and number of office spaces available.
The results might shock recruitment professionals who believe that the bright lights and gold-paved streets of London are the be all and end all of success – or, that they need to relocate to a city which acts as a centre for a certain industry. For example, Cambridge for Science or Oxford for publishing.
However, it was Scottish capital Edinburgh which came top of the business startup pile – the result of its excellent cost per workstation, strong broadband speeds and low number of business insurance claims.
