The total number of companies based in Northamptonshire falls after 3 years of consistent growth.

The total number of companies registered in Northamptonshire fell from 53,149 in 2021 to 51,966 in 2022 – a disappointing 2.2% decrease.

Whilst Northamptonshire has never really been a hot spot for formation activity with the 5 year growth rate sitting at just 11.45% (compared to the UK as a whole, which saw 27.1% for the same period), a slightly less bleak picture can be painted when considering the adjustments based on population. The county boasts 75 companies per 1000 people by the end of 2022, only marginally below the national average of 76.4.
