    Abstract

    The latest Scottish Business Monitor – for Q1 2019 – highlights that growth has eased since Q4 2018 and although many of the key trends remain positive they are subdued compared to last quarter. The latest results for turnover and business activity show that the trends remained - on balance - positive. However, they are down on the previous quarter, and the level of new business now sits at the lowest point since the end of 2016.
