The people n companies I talk to, he biggest thing is - staff, gettign and being able to get them into London.

If a company is not offering well over 150k for my line of work then there's just no point at the mo.

The only suggestion I can make is to relocate office to within 1 mile of a main line trainn stattion/transport hub.

Does the UK generally support SMEs anyway or more interested in Ftse100 corporates and finance?

Curiously I have seen jobs in London which may offer slightly more than outside, but more likely say they want potential employees to be have a 110% passionate for their business or something.🤔.   So their complaint about lack of staff may be self inflicted anyway.

there are different categories of "small business" . 

Some who own the shops / premises are doing fine. 

If they have staff who own their home or live in council accomodation, they're fine too.

The small companies that setup and try and compete with the above, but have to pay "new" rent rates as well as trying to attract qualified labour who have to rent privately will struggle. 

The business market is a reflection of the housing market. stratified by whether the business and its employees have access to cheap real estate or not.

Pretty much the latter. Small is not efficient. An efficient, sterile, miserable country - that's the future we want to aim for! Doing quite well on that already.
