Simply Business Bulletin: the latest business news in for August 2015

We’re all systems go! The Simply Business bulletin is here.

Why did you set up your business? The chances are it wasn’t to lose sleep, miss out on holiday or cancel social plans. That’s why we’ve launched a shiny new quiz which you can take to find out your work-life balance.

Elsewhere, we dip our trotters into a truly unexpected tale; a landlord, a 50 stone pig, and a whole heap of muddy surprises.

We also want to hear from you. Have you seen something we should include in next week’s Bulletin? Email us at, or tweet us at @SimplyBusiness, and we’ll make sure to feature the best.
