BCC Quarterly Economic Survey - deadline for completion 11th September
The fieldwork for the British Chambers of Commerce Quarterly Economic Survey (QES) for Q2 2017 is now open and will finish on 11 September. The QES is the largest and longest-running business survey in the UK and is a powerful tool for representing the voice of business to government. To retain its reputation as a reliable economic indicator and a powerful tool for lobbying, it is vital as many businesses as possible respond to it.
At the national level, it’s a leading indicator – often picking up big changes in the economy long before other surveys or official statistics:
The Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee uses the QES as one of its key benchmarks when setting interest rates
HM Treasury and the independent Office for Budget Responsibility use the QES to put together their forecasts for the UK’s economic performance
The European Commission uses the QES to assess the health of the UK economy
The survey takes around 2 minutes to complete and can be accessed here.
