This report summarises the key results from our latest Fraser of Allander (FAI) Scottish Business Monitor, published in partnership with Addleshaw Goddard. The survey sampled over 500 firms in January from across the Scottish economy. The results examined business sentiment in the final quarter of 2020, and their outlook and expectations through 2021. Our survey results show that business sentiment remained poor in the fourth quarter, with the majority of net balances across metrics such as volume of business, employment and turnover, negative for the entirety of 2020.
