A survey carried out by The BDO Optimism Index has found that business confidence has fallen to its lowest level in 21 years.

The survey looks at UK influential businesses like banks and payment organisations and incorporates over 5 million predictions. provides the best comparisons for a wide range of sectors including insurance, finance and travel and aims to get the best prices and deals for consumers.

It seems the damaging effects on businesses of five years’ zigzagging economic growth, has left them wary of making concrete plans for expansion and resigned to the new normal economic stagnation.’ places huge importance on money saving, as a representative added, ‘A triple dip recession is a worrying thought, especially after so many prosperous events over the summer such as the Olympics and Golden Jubilee, in response will do their utmost to bring the best possible deals to consumers throughout the UK.’ continues to raise consumer based concerns.
