Mixed Scottish business reaction to Budget
Popular measures from George Osborne have included cutting levels of corporation tax, particularly for small businesses next year. But the business community has reacted unfavourably to news of a VAT rise from 17.5% to 20% from 4 January 2010. And there was little cheer for the video gaming industry as the chancellor reversed planned tax breaks. The Scottish Chambers of Commerce said the rise in VAT would “undoubtedly cause concerns” in Scotland’s retail and tourism sectors as it would serve to dampen consumer demand in the economy next year”. However, chief executive Liz Cameron welcomed plans to reduce ... market research, surveys and trends
Two-thirds of Scots SMEs miss out on exports
A report today from Bank of Scotland Commercial suggests that many Scottish businesses are losing out on international opportunities by not exporting. It says that only a third of Scots SMEs export their products or services. Concerns about doing business in a foreign language worry some, while 41% described fearing a lack of demand as the main reason for not doing so. There are other barriers to trade as well. They’re worried about potential bad debts, possible late payments, currency fluctuations, a lack of resources to explore new markets and a feeling that they lack the necessary expertise. Right across the UK, the ... market research, surveys and trends

BCC expects 2011 rise in interest rates
Influential business group British Chambers of Commerce believes interest rates will not rise until at least 2011 due to a weak economic recovery and the impact of George Osborne’s June Budget on growth. BCC chief economist David Kern said: “I used to believe before the Budget that we would see a first increase in rates before the end of this year. “I think this is now less likely. I think we will now see the first increase in the early months of 2011. I hope even this will be pushed further back. More and more my mind is moving towards the second half of 2011 at the earliest.” The BCC’s survey of 5600 ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Business leaders press finance secretary over rates
Business leaders are to continue pressing their case for a "fair deal" on business rates after meeting with Finance Secretary John Swinney. The Scottish Chambers of Commerce have been concerned at the scrapping of a scheme to phase in higher business rates. They said this meant some Scots firms were worse off than English rivals. But the Scottish government has claimed almost 60% of ratepayers now paid less, or no more, in business rates. Liz Cameron, chief executive of Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said after the meeting that some progress had been made but the chamber remained concerned about the Scottish ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The severe winter contributed to a "hesitant" beginning to 2010 for the economy, the Scottish Chambers of Commerce has said. A survey found cold weather at the start of the year affected confidence and activity across all sectors. The main business trends remain negative but are better than a year ago, according to the report. It concluded signs of a sustained recovery in the Scottish economy "remain elusive". The report, conducted in conjunction with the University of Strathclyde's Fraser of Allander Institute, found rising optimism in manufacturing during the first quarter of 2010. Of particular concern is the apparent ...

smithsmith, you go. A catalog of just about everything researchable, as based on the Libary of Congress classification system mentioned above, but modified by me to make it a bit more manageable and on point. It's a bit of an odd list in some ways, especially in terms of the 'weights' given particular subjects, but not others. Still, I think you'll find that all in all it covers a great deal of territory in an organized fashion. I hope the formatting of the list will hold during the posting process...that's always a bit of an iffy prospect. Let me know if ...
