This survey asked 3047 business managers in the EU15 countries about their perceptions concerning access to finance.
In order to assess the extent to which SMEs face difficulties when it comes to access to finance, the Directorate-General Enterprise and Industry turned to managers of SMEs in the 15 old Member States for their views. A total of 3047 managers were interviewed by telephone between the 5th and the 19th of September 2005 under the Flash Eurobarometer polling system.
