Figures from Companies House have shown that 2015 was a record year for companies being registered. Statistics from research that was conducted by The Centre For Entrepreneurs have revealed the extent of massive improvement in the number of companies being formed.
Companies House data illustrates that 608,110 new UK businesses were formed compared to 581,173 in the previous year. A considerable increase in new businesses starting up.
According to Luke Johnson – Chairman of The Centre For Entrepreneurs – these are encouraging statistics:
“We have seen a record number of new businesses created for four consecutive years, proving that entrepreneurship has become ingrained within the UK’s business culture. This is something we should celebrate and something we should continue to nurture through sensible and incentivising government policies”
Other key findings from this research:
- London dominates the figures with over 200,000 new companies being formed in the capital.
- Other areas such as Greater Manchester and the West Midlands are notable too. Greater Manchester – on a per capita basis – are doing particularly well.
- Seaside towns such as Brighton, Southend and Poole have also had a good year and make up the top 20 on a per capita basis.
- Areas just outside of London are showing signs of growth. Woking and Surrey Heath have 10 startups per 1,000
Here’s to 2016 which will hopefully break even more records!
