ONS Survey: Coincidence or not?
At Ayrton Wylie we are used to completing forms for differing Government departments and have occasionally had to complete a survey for the Office for National Statistics in the past. This month, we received a survey from the ONS requesting our turnover and employee stats for March. Having completed the form I was somewhat surprised to receive a call from the ONS today wanting to verify the data but also stating that we will be receiving this survey each month going forward as they are monitoring estate agents.
Does this reflect a desire by the Government to gauge the impact of recent stamp duty changes?
