Many small businesses started out being very profitable but still, they failed within five years of operation.  According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), small business survival rates are usually quite high in the first year, typically over 90%. 

Fast-forward five years, only about 40% of those small businesses still trades.

Of course, there are many reasons why small businesses fail. These reasons range from poor management; inadequate business planning; insufficient capital, etc. 

However, the most common reason for failure is a lack of expert advice in critical areas of your business that should have been sort earlier to run a successful business.
