More than half of Irish businesses have experienced growth during the second half of this year, a new survey indicates.

Fifty two per cent of business owners said their companies have experience growth in the period between July and September by comparison to the same period last year. Six out of ten larger companies increased their staff numbers in the past twelve months, the quarterly survey of 350 businesses conducted by BDO found. 

By comparison, just twenty eight per cent of business owners experienced growth during the same period in 2011. Larger businesses are benefiting more than smaller enterprises, the survey discovered.

"That is the first time we have seen this since our survey began five years ago," said BDO managing partner Michael Costello. "Those surveyed believe growth trends are set to continue."
