Welsh counties dominate the top 20

It is great to see so many Welsh and Scottish counties in the top 20 for net company growth, showing that the South East of England isn’t the only place to do business

Welsh counties dominate the top 20 of the latest company growth league table released by company formation agents Duport.co.uk. The table organises UK counties by their relative net growth during the fourth quarter of last year.

There are seven Welsh counties in the top 20, including Caerphilly, Wrexham and Cardiff. Scottish counties also feature heavily, with Midlothian, Dunbartonshire, Orkney and Moray all near the top of the table.

Surprisingly, London is the only Southern county to appear in the top 20. Bedfordshire is the next to appear, at number 22.

Managing Director of company formation experts Duport.co.uk commented:

“It is great to see so many Welsh and Scottish counties in the top 20 for net company growth, showing that the South East of England isn’t the only place to do business. High net company growth in Wales and Scotland could be a sign that they are beginning to recover from the worst effects of the recession.”
