What do UK businesses think about the EU?

Poll after poll show that businesses, including small businesses, believe the UK is better off within the EU (ICSA-Financial Times Survey, Grant Thornton, Deloitte, Federation of Small Businesses, British Chambers of Commerce). 
Of all British small and medium-sized businesses that export, 88% do so to the EU. 75% of small businesses want to remain in the EU, compared to 6% who want to leave (source: Federation of Small Businesses).
One million UK businesses rely on trading with the EU, which allows them to grow and employ more people, creating jobs in the UK and giving more families like yours the security of a pay packet every month.
