Working Capital Index:

A unique barometer of working capital pressures on business

This year’s edition of the Bank of Scotland Working Capital Index shows that the pressure to use more working capital previously observed is being sustained as revenue growth for UK companies has jumped. Economic uncertainty remains the biggest concern for British businesses, with 31 per cent of those surveyed citing this as the biggest challenge to managing working capital over the next 12 months.

Our report highlights how this concern has translated into risk aversion and lower levels of capital expenditure right when companies need to invest to improve efficiency and take advantage of new trading opportunities.
