SMEs predicting sales boon A recent study by Barclaycard has found that small businesses are expecting a 9.8% surge in revenues in the second quarter compared with the previous three months. 47% of firms expect to increase their workforces over the next year in response to the boom in sales. Rob Cameron, the chief executive of Barclaycard Payments, said: "As restrictions lift, it's reassuring to see the highest level of SME optimism since the barometer launched, with expectations of a long overdue boost for the hospitality and leisure sector. With the confidence to plan ahead, small businesses have turned their attention to bulking up their workforce, as well as investing in technology and marketing."
