UK Company Formations: Southwest Region - February 2015

We begin our exploration of regional UK company formations trends by looking at our home base, the Southwest. This data is for Southwest postcodes for February 2015, courtesy of our business information team.

Bristol continues to lead the region in company incorporations over the last twelve months, though decreased slightly from 668 in February 2014. Bournemouth is the second most active with 571 new incorporations and Gloucester the third largest with 340. The Southwest region, including Bath and Bristol, continue to be recognised as “a place where innovative ideas are constantly being turned into ground-breaking products and services.”

Next week we will continue exploring regional UK company formation trends with a look at the East Midlands and West Midlands regions and their 2014 – 2015 growth.
