Business Finance Bulletin Epsd 36: Alternative Finance, SME Confidence, Banking Competition & Hidden Cashflow

In this week’s episode of the Business Finance Bulletin I look at the news that Paypal is launching its Working Capital programme in the UK to provide its clients with access to business loans. So if you’re a PayPal merchant this is for you!

The alternative finance continues to grow with news from AlternativeBusinessFunding that it has brought new alternative lender partners on board.

I also look at a survey from Beggies Traynor on small business investment plans and news from the Competition and Markets Authority about its plans to undertake a full review of the UK SME banking market.

The Business Finance Tip of the Week is taken from a live seminar I delivered for the ACCA on access to finance. In this clip I look at one source of finance which tends to remain hidden in the business… stock.

Thanks for watching and enjoy!
