The United Kingdom’s unemployment rate has been phenomenally high in recent months, with an ever increasing number of people finding themselves out of work; either through redundancy or an inability to find a job after university. However, a potential upside to this is that more and more people in the country are looking at setting up their own small business, particularly those who have capital from redundancy payments.
