The Federation of Small Business recently launched a big study into home working in Scotland… obviously more relevant to those north of the border, but nevertheless an interesting read when you look at the headline figures!
- Home working is worth £19 BILLION to the Scottish economy.
- 1 in 5 people employed by the private sector work from home.
- Business services (i.e. like being a VA!) make up 12% of the home based sector.
- Over half (54%) have been trading for more than 10 years.
