The survey sampled over 500 firms in July from across the Scottish economy. The results examined business sentiment in the second quarter of 2021, and their outlook and expectations through the second half of 2021. Our survey results show that business sentiment continued to improve in the second quarter of 2021. Volume of business, employment and turnover metrics continued to be positive for the second quarter in a row highlighting improved optimism as many restrictions lift across Scotland and the rest of the UK.
