So how are businesses coping with COVID-19 and its fallout?
Here is the latest set of business performance charts extracted for the ONS data wave 8. I’ll add commentary over the week because you can draw your own conclusions and comparison against how you are doing.
It’s still a game of two halves, those that are in the game and doing well, and those that aren’t (or can’t). There are still opportunities for above-normal trading, but the high proportion of furloughed staff must surely be causing problems across the supply chain with reductions in both supply and demand.
