The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) said 54 percent of more than 5,700 companies it surveyed between May 16 and June 9 expected turnover to increase over the next 12 months. This is down from 63 percent in the previous survey and the lowest share since late 2020, when many businesses were under some form of Covid restrictions. A record 65 percent of companies said they planned to raise their prices in the next three months. Forecasters like the IMF and OECD think Britain will be hit harder by rising prices than other countries.
