From Insider, today:

The UK’s smallest businesses believe they would need less than a week’s notice to restart operations, according to a new survey by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC). Almost two-thirds with less than 10 employees said they would need just days for reopening while half of respondents with more than 50 workers said they would need longer. Only 3% of businesses said they would need more than three weeks’ notice to get back and running once lockdown restrictions are eased, the BCC’s coronavirus business impact tracker found.

From 540 businesses between April 29 – 1 May 2020 :

  • 25% said they would not need any notice
  • 35% said they would need less than a week’s notice
  • 29% said they would need one to three weeks’ notice
  • 7% said they would need three to six weeks’ notice
  • 3% said they would need more than 3 weeks’ notice
