Survey for Business Owners

Welcome

Please use this page to share information about how COVID-19 and the response to the pandemic from the Scottish Government and other public agencies impacted your business.


The form should take around 15 minutes to complete, but you can spend longer giving us more detail if you wish. The form will be live until 31st August 2024.

Before completing this form, you may wish to read about Let's Be Heard and the Scottish COVID-19 Inquiry.

You can use the online form to submit a written, audio or BSL video response. You can give your response in the language you are most comfortable using. If you have any questions, or need information in another format or language, please contact us.


The questions

All the questions are optional. You can tell us as much or as little as you wish. 

  • There is a short section asking for details about your business, including self-employment.
  • You will then be asked to tell us about:
    • access to financial support;
    • information provided to businesses relating to the pandemic; and
    • key worker status.
  • You then have the choice to answer some optional questions about yourself. While these are not directly related to your business ownership, they will help us better understand the impact of COVID-19 and the public sector response to the pandemic on different people, which will improve our findings.

Our Privacy Notice tells you what we do with the information you give us.

Keep in touch

  • You can take part anonymously or you can choose to include your contact details.
  • In future we may wish to contact you to ask more questions or to invite you to take part in Inquiry activities. If you would like us to be able to contact you, you can enter your contact details on the form when prompted.
  • You can sign up for updates or write to Freepost SCOTTISH COVID-19 INQUIRY.
