QES

What is it?

The British Chambers of Commerce, together with the accredited Chamber Network, including Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce, run Britain’s most influential private business survey – the Quarterly Economic Survey (QES).

Each quarter more than 6,000 businesses nationally participate in the QES. Businesses are questioned on a wide range of issues, including; domestic sales and orders, export sales and orders, employment prospects, investment, recruitment difficulties, cashflow, confidence and price pressures.

The QES is the first economic indicator of the quarter, published in advance of official figures and other private surveys, and it consistently mirrors trends in official data. For this reason the survey is closely watched by policymakers such as the Treasury, the Bank of England, the Office for Budget Responsibility, the EU Commission and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Have your say!

As a member of Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce and a local business, we invite you to take part and share your views about the current economic climate in Lincolnshire.

Your response to this survey will support the facts and figures submitted to parliament and committees who make the decisions that affect all of us in business, those who trade and ultimately your customers and clients.

Your input to this survey is vital, the more businesses that take part, the louder the voice of the Lincolnshire business community.

All businesses in Lincolnshire are eligible to fill out the survey. It only takes 3 minutes to complete and can also be completed anonymously if you wish.

The fieldwork for the QES is now closed, Q4 fieldwork will open Monday 4th November and will remain open until 25th November 2019.
