Continuing our review of the findings from the latest SME Finance Monitor report, we look at what is holding small businesses back from borrowing. The survey revealed four reasons why businesses feel uncomfortable in taking on debt.

Whilst many businesses think that lenders are reluctant to support businesses, one bank is actively looking to assist growing business. Arbuthnot Latham Bank has recently opened an office in Bristol as an addition to their office in Exeter, to cover the South West and we take a peek at how they can help businesses with their commercial finance requirements.

Finally, we review the latest FSB Small Business Index survey which highlights that small businesses are feeling much less confident that they were a year ago. What is holding them back?

The latest SME Finance Monitor Report reveals an interesting insight into small business owner’s current thoughts about borrowing money. In this episode of the Business Finance Bulletin we take a look at feedback from small business owners on their appetite to borrow and funding growth.

Deciding to sit back and self-fund your growth plans, whether intentionally, or because you can’t find finance, comes at a cost. This is the finding from a survey carried out by Aldermore Bank which reveals that business opportunities are being lost because small businesses can’t access the right finance.

Looking for a fast, short term business loan? How about one in 12 minutes? We look at a new lending service launched by Ultimate Finance, the Cash Advance, which promises quick access to short term business finance with minimal fuss.

In the latest Business Finance Bulletin Rob Warlow looks at the forthcoming launch of country-wide Venture Funding Hubs which will provide free advice to businesses wanting to know more about crowdfunding and how it works.

Turning to conventional sources of funding Rob looks at the latest bank lending figures which perhaps not surprisingly show a further fall in the total amount outstanding to UK businesses. However, there is a glimmer of some good news.

What banks are looking for in a finance request is the subject of a recent review, The State of Business Finance, carried out by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and Rob shares the one message this report has for banks.

Whether businesses actually want to borrow is a topic that is rarely looked at but as Rob discusses there is a large section of the UK business market that have no interest in borrowing. In a clip from a live seminar Rob looks at the key reasons why business owners say they are not interested in looking for finance.
