The report, compiled independently by consultants at Ernst & Young, has revealed a sharp increase in the business-to-business market of 22% during Q4, with the business-to-business online channel performing exceptionally well, with like-for-like voucher sales up by 12.1% during this same period.

The report also revealed that, whilst corporate Direct Sales remain the largest sales channel for vouchers, the online channel showed signs of recovery – rising by 46%.
