For the past nine years, the Centre for Entrepreneurs’ annual analysis of Companies House data has provided a detailed snapshot of business formations across the UK. The Centre’s mapping of business formations to local authorities allows policy-makers, journalists and others to gauge the state of entrepreneurial activity across the UK.
The figures have revealed an upsurge in business formation since 2014. The latest Companies House data, as analysed by the Centre, shows that business formations reached a new record of 790,390 in 2022, growing 4.53% since 2021.
