* BECBC bases our definition of an SME on the European standard:
The broad definition of an SME is any business who employs less than 250 people and has a turnover of less than 50 million Euros. (approx. £46.8m). A company is NOT an SME If they are a wholly owned business which is part of a larger group whose head count or turnover when taken in full goes over the threshold, or if they are a parent company with subsidiaries, where the whole turnover of their group exceeds the thresholds.
