    With the holiday season upon us, it’s time to bask in the glow of the firelight and think about the jolly old toymakers, reindeer groomers and industrious elves hitting their busiest time of year. Seasonal trends, like elderly relatives on the sherry, are largely beyond your ability to control. 5% of UK businesses close their doors at some point during the year to save costs, while 6% get stuck relying on credit cards to manage their seasonal fluctuations. 4% use business loans, 17% either take on or let go staff to cope and an enormous 30% of those affected use their invoice or supply chain to ride out seasonal downtimes. All in all, if seasonal trends are influencing your business then you need to have a strategy to deal with them.
