Survey of businesses to establish the economy-wide and industry level impact of COVID-19 in Scotland

A major survey of Scottish businesses, revealing the full impact of the Coronavirus lockdown – with confidence so badly damaged that 61% fear they will go bust, despite government support. 

More than 400 companies, working across 17 broad sectors, took part in the survey. Results saw 93% stating they had been adversely affected by the pandemic, including 64% saying they had been forced to stop trading.
