What is QES?
The Quarterly Economic Survey (QES) is a business questionnaire that gives a ‘health check’ on Lincolnshire’s economy. It is done four times a year at the beginning of each trading quarter. It forms part of the British Chambers of Commerce’s national survey, and the results given by Lincolnshire businesses contributes to the body of evidence.
Why is it important?
QES is the most authoritative national business confidence survey and the first to be published in each quarter. Its results are closely watched by HM Treasury and the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee. The results can be used and referenced by Lincolnshire businesses in applications and tenders, as well as the press. It is a valuable document for anyone needing to quote the latest economic trading results for Lincolnshire.
