FSB Report into Home Working

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.
