UK Company Formations: Yorkshire Region - March 2015

Our exploration of regional UK company formation trends takes us to Yorkshire this week, looking at the Yorkshire & Humberside region postcodes for March 2015, courtesy of our business information team.

Sheffield is leading the region with the highest new company incorporations and also the highest growth of 80%, up from 690, in March 2014. Regional business and enterprise support services available locally at little or no cost to entrepreneurs such as Senta may play a contributing role in the high growth success.

Wakefield experienced the next highest growth of 33.20% with 341 incorporations for March 2015. At 705 new company formations, Leeds had a decrease of -41.29% from 1,205 in March 2014. In spite of the decrease in Leeds, it joins Sheffield, Wakefield and York as the areas with the highest new company incorporations in this region.
