The figure, revealed in the latest quarterly Citibase Business Confidence Index,  has jumped from 61% in the Q1 2018 survey.

The index also showed SMEs are divided on what type of Brexit they want, with 45% of respondents preferring a hard Brexit (down from 48% in Q1 2018) and 49% a soft Brexit (up from 38% in Q1 2018).
