According to the UK Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, there were a record 5.5 million private sector businesses in the UK at the start of 2016, representing an increase of 97,000 since 2015, and 2 million more than in 2000. Still, despite strong growth in the number of new businesses, research from the National Institute for Economic and Social Research (Nista) finds that general UK labour productivity has stagnated since the financial crisis in 2007, and with it wage growth.
