Posted in Business Finance Bulletin

We kick-off this week’s Bulletin by sharing a story from a client meeting this week where the business assumed that there would be no funding for them. We look at how many businesses make this mistake and so inadvertently deny themselves the opportunity to grow.

We have news on how TaxAssist Accountants have formed an alliance with Ratesetter, the peer-to-peer lender, to offer clients immediate access to a quick source of working capital and growth finance.

To close the Bulletin, we take our monthly look at how banks are supporting SMEs in terms of loans outstanding. The latest figures from the Bank of England indicate early signs of a shift in attitude amongst small businesses towards borrowing.

Whilst small businesses can sometimes beat the bigger players in the market, occasionally we can learn a trick or two from them. In this edition of the Business Finance Bulletin, we take a look at strategies being employed by Chief Financial Officers to boost their company’s performance. What tips can you take action on?

How do small business owners view the finance market and their growth prospects? That’s a question posed in the latest Business Finance Survey carried out by the British Business Bank. Not surprisingly, the survey reveals positive news… and less positive expectations when looking ahead.

In this episode of the Business Finance Bulletin we take a look at a report issued by the UK Peer to Peer Finance Association reviewing the benefits of using Peer to Peer finance and how an about-turn by a former City grandee has provided a thumbs up to the sector.

Currently no Bulletin would be complete without a look at the ongoing impact of the forthcoming Brexit! We dip into two surveys carried out by Deloitte and the British Chamber of Commerce which examines how industry leaders and sectors view the current and future situation.

We are often told by business owners that they wonder how they can use the Annual Accounts prepared by their accountants. Calculating and reviewing a series of financial ratios is one useful action and in the Bulletin we give you a heads-up of a new video in our occasional series on working with ratios. This video reveals how to focus on efficiency and hence drive up profits.
