Derbyshire rises 2 spots on the company formation league table with 7,764 new companies formed.
The county of Derbyshire boasts a respectable 4.3% yearly growth, comparable to the performance of the UK as a whole (which saw growth of 4.6% over the same period). Combining this with the fact that 39.5% more companies were formed in Derbyshire than were closed throughout 2022 it is somewhat surprising that at the end of 2021 there were only 54.6 companies per 1000 people, below the national average of 82.7. However, with large cities such as Manchester – a hot spot for new company formations – only a stone’s throw away this may not be overly surprising.
