|UK CONSUMER CONFIDENCE Britain has enjoyed its bigest single month jump in consumer confidence since January last year to move back into positive territory for the first time since August and only the third time in the past decade, according to GfKs survey..
RETAIL SALES Figures from the CBI distibutive trades survey showed that 50% of companies surveyed reported that sales volumes were higher than a year ago. Only 10% said that they were lower. The reading was a fall from the near 27 year high in December, when the balance of 61% of shops reported a sales boost, but better than expected 35% figure.
HOUSING The National House Building Council reported a 9% increase in volumes of homes registered from 133,670 in 2013 to 145,175 in 2014. This was the highest level since 2007, the peak of the property boom. It was mostly driven by the private sector.
HOUSE PRICES.The Nationwide survey showed house prices growing at their slowest rate late 2013. National prices rose by 6.8% in the yea to January, down from 7.2% in December, marking the fifth consecutive month of slowing prices. Prices rose by 0.3%, up from 0.2%in December. The average cost of a house is £188,446.
LATE PAYMENT More than a third of small and medium-sized businesses want larger companies who persistently pay late to be barred from government contracts. Only 9% of 500 SMEs surveyed by BFS said that their debtors were making prompt payments at the end of 2013, compared with one in five in 2009. A separate report by the Forum of Private Business showed that almost a quarter of its members had suffered an increase in late payments over the past year, in stark contrast with 3% who reported a decrease. About 29% have witnessed a rise in the average number of days beyond the deadline that payment is made late.
