If you’re excited about what 2013 has in store for your business and believe that now may be the right time to expand your operations, you might need to invest in new office furniture. Whether you intend to move to new, larger premises or simply to expand your current office, additional chairs, desks and other items may well be on your shopping list.
To help keep your costs down, it’s important to ensure you get your hands on great value products. Thankfully, achieving this is now easier than ever, as long as you know where to look.
Confidence is rising
Your organisation is certainly not the only one with high hopes for the future. The latest Quarterly Economic Survey from the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) revealed that British businesses are ambitious and confident. Nearly all the major balances improved during the final quarter of the year compared with the previous three-month period.
The poll of almost 8,000 companies identified stronger balances seen in both the manufacturing and service sectors, despite the fact that growth remained weak.
A new chapter
Responding to the findings, BCC director general John Longworth said: “It is a new year and time for a new chapter in our economy.”
He added: “Our survey results show that the economy is making progress, despite the numerous challenges it has faced. Although the improvements we have seen are slight, it is progress nonetheless, and highlights the determination and ability of the businesses we have here in the UK.”
Mr Longworth went on to call for further measures to help firms operating in Britain. He remarked: “Recent steps to improve access to finance, such as the commitment to create a business bank, must be implemented at scale and with clear timetables. More forceful measures are also needed to unlock massive private funding to renew Britain’s infrastructure that will create confidence in the short-term, jobs in the medium-term and growth in the long-term.”
GDP to rise
Also commenting on the report, BCC chief economist David Kern suggested that GDP will experience a modest recovery this year and next. He went on to state: “British businesses remain resilient and we are confident that, with the right policies, growth will gradually improve over the next few years.”
