Support our campaign
Businesses in Scotland are facing up to the twin challenges posed by Brexit and Covid-19.
We understand the importance of recasting Scotland’s relationship with the EU based on free-trade and new forms of co-operation. We know that the UK market is worth four times our exports to the EU so it is clear that we must preserve the most open trade possible with ALL of our neighbours and international partners.
We also recognise that the vital support that our businesses and workers have received from government during the coronavirus pandemic has been facilitated by the pooling and sharing of resources made possible by Scotland’s place in the UK. Our focus must remain on creating the conditions to protect jobs and regrow the economy.
That is why business must send a clear signal that it does not welcome the additional uncertainty created by the prospect of campaign to break up the United Kingdom, which risks dividing our country and damaging our economy at the worst possible time.

Views from the board
Scottish Business UK provide a powerful voice for the business community who value our economic, social and family ties across the United Kingdom. It is important that all voices are heard loudly and clearly to make the positive case for a strong and caring united Kingdom.
— Scottish Lib Dem Leader, Willie Rennie MSP
Scottish Business UK understand that for our economy to flourish we have to work together across all parts of our United Kingdom. As people who are running businesses and creating jobs, they see clearly that the politics and grievance and division are putting the brakes on progress. I am a strong supporter of the great work they do to speak up for business and champion the UK.
— Alister Jack MP, Secretary of State for Scotland
Day after day I hear from business owners who tell me their businesses are at breaking point due to the pandemic. What they ask for and what they need is for the Scottish government and the UK government to work together to support the economy and protect jobs. What they don’t need is more uncertainty, division and upheaval. Scottish Business UK has a vital role to play in giving those businesses a voice and making the positive case for cooperation across the UK family of nations.
— Ian Murray MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Scotl...
Scottish Business UK boasts a diverse Advisory Council bringing together the views of business leaders from a broad range of backgrounds. The past few months have demonstrated how important it is for each nation of the United Kingdom to co-operate and we must ensure that over the next few months and years that Scotland’s two Governments work closely together to aid the pandemic recovery. The economic case for remaining part of the United Kingdom is stronger than ever – we need to build on the strength of support we have seen from the UK Government to deliver security, prosperity and certainty for Scotland.
— Scottish Conservative Leader, Douglas Ross MP
This is a time when we all need to work together. In the months and years ahead we need to concentrate on protecting jobs and strengthening the economy so we can provide everyone with security and peace of mind. A politics of division and separation sets that work back. Instead of dividing people, SBUK brings folk together from different backgrounds and businesses to make the case for co-operation and common sense. I am delighted to support the work of all the great Scottish figures behind SBUK.
— The Rt Hon Michael Gove MP
