Belfast Business Survey

We have partnered with Belfast Chamber to run a six monthly Belfast Business Survey. The first survey was in summer 2021. This six monthly survey will take place until summer 2023.

Why we use a survey for Belfast businesses 

The Belfast Business survey is an important business sentiment tracker to find out and understand views of businesses and how they are performing in the current climate.

The survey asks businesses to give feedback on:

  • current trading conditions and outlook
  • staff and skills needs
  • investment decisions
  • main business challenges
  • business location

This confidential survey can help us make sure our policies and programmes meet the changing needs of Belfast businesses and provide the right support. 

Live surveys

The winter 2022 survey closed at 5pm on Friday 11 March 2022. There are currently no live surveys. We'll launch the next survey in summer 2022.
