The Alliance and Leicester Business Banking survey also revealed that of the owners who do go on holiday, 38% will only be taking short breaks.

Industry leaders are now warning that by not taking time out, company bosses risk becoming less efficient and damaging their firms.

In the population as a whole, only 14% will go without a holiday. That figure shoots-up to 31% of small business owners – more than a million people.
