According to new research from business software and service provider, Sage UK, nearly two thirds (63%) of entrepreneurs in the UK won’t stop working between Christmas and the New Year.
Sage surveyed over 1,000 small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) from its 800,000 strong UK customer base and found that:
• 5% of business owners are planning on working on Christmas Day
• 7% of small business owners are planning on working on Boxing Day
• 10% of small business owners are planning on working on New Year’s Day
• 4 out of 10 business owners (39%) will work over the festive period, even though their business is officially closed.
According to Sage’s research, whilst 10% of entrepreneurs will be using the peace and quiet to plan for 2012, the majority will use the time to get on top of key business processes such as finances and payroll (62%).
