THE East Anglian Daily Times has once again teamed up with Larking Gowen Chartered Accountants to conduct a survey of local businesses, following the success of the inaugural survey run last summer.

Larking Gowen will be surveying around 4,000 local businesses, small, medium and large, to assess their opinions on topical issues.

Roger Girling, a partner of Larking Gowen based in Ipswich, comments: “The first survey was a great success and we are pleased to be working with our friends at the EADT again.

“Last year's results were extremely positive with improving sales, turnover and profits, plus a stable or increasing workforce.

“Therefore, it will be interesting to find out the current health of businesses in the area this year.”
