Why is business confidence falling?

Confidence among small businesses fell at the end of last year, knocked by December’s severe weather and the rise in VAT to 20% at the beginning of 2011, a survey has said.

The Federation of Small Businesses’ (FSB) quarterly survey said that confidence in the service and transport sectors had been particularly affected.

The FSB also warned that growth in 2011 was likely to be “sluggish at best”.

But if business confidence is falling, what is the main reason in your eyes? Cast your vote on this week’s poll.
