Hertfordshire Limited is part of an annual series of detailed business analysis by county, initiated by Grant Thornton. This report and the benchmarks it highlights have already become a key event in the county's business calendar.
How Hertfordshire Limited is compiled
Hertfordshire Limited is a study of the county's 200 largest privately owned companies, based on turnover, who have their principal trading address in Hertfordshire. The population excludes companies that are listed or owned by listed or overseas businesses, or by larger corporates located outside of the region.
The report is compiled using the most recent publicly available financial statements and the results are derived from the current and previous year's financial performance of the 200 constituent members to allow a year on year comparison.
The aim of this analysis is to provide a yardstick against which the county can assess its economic performance and businesses can benchmark themselves against their peers.
The report gives a fascinating insight into how Hertfordshire Limited has performed during these changing times and provides a snapshot of the health of the county's economy as businesses in Hertfordshire respond to the challenges that lie ahead.
Following analysis of these 200 companies, eight sectors were identified to form the basis of this report:
Automotive and motor retail
Business support services
Food, drink and leisure
Healthcare and education
Property and construction
Retail and wholesale
