In the latest Business Finance Bulletin episode Business Loan Services’ Rob Warlow tackles the age-old problem of late payment. Rob looks at recent research from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) which reveals the extent of the problem and possible solutions.

Many businesses don’t realise that to help offset the costs of the impact of late payment they are allow to charge interest and Rob shares news from Lovetts, the debt recovery firm, on how awareness of this right is on the increase.

Unlike bank lending asset finance continues its growth as more businesses turn to this alternative source of finance. The latest statistics from the Asset Based Finance Association show just how popular it has become.

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.
