Small business – turnover between £1m – £10m
Medium business – turnover between £10m – £30m
Large business – turnover over £30m

The companies in this list have been selected as the fastest growing profit-making, private, regional companies, based on turnover growth.

Information has been compiled using data which is publicly available at Companies House of UK listed companies and independently verified.

The average turnover growth has been assessed on a percentage increase based on the difference between turnover figures filed for the last three years.

To qualify, companies must be trading entities and have turnover in excess of £1m in the last three years of filed accounts, which are up to date as at 30 November 2020. Companies must also have made profits in each of the past three years’ accounts. Companies returning to the list must have filed new accounts since last years awards.
