As Source Marketing Direct reports, the study reveals that a much larger proportion of the money spent with small businesses by local authorities is reinvested back into the local economy.

In fact, local authorities spent £8.7 billion on goods within their local area last year; for every £1 spent with SME 63 pence was reinvested in the local area, which compares with just 40 pence for every £1 spent with large local businesses.

In total, £500 million less was spent with SMEs than large businesses, yet SMEs contributed £746 million more for the local economy, the report concluded.
