Following the success of our first survey in April 2020 which measured the impact of COVID-19 on local businesses in Jersey and Guernsey, Grant Thornton has agreed to run a second survey, in association with the Jersey Chamber of Commerce.

12 months on, we're looking to measure the impact of the pandemic on local businesses and the self-employed and discover if the overall sentiment of the business community is better or worse than it was when we launched the first survey in April 2020. As we enter a phase of recovery, we want to find out if you believe the government should continue to support businesses and, if so, how? We are keen to hear from business owners on how they have adapted to the crisis, their overall confidence and approach to survival and finally their thoughts around staff wellbeing.

If you would like to receive a copy of the survey results, please contact
