We open this week’s Bulletin with a look at analysis from KMPG which reveals a jump in company Administrations in the third quarter of this year. Reflecting pressures being felt in the economy the increase is not a good sign for the remainder of this year.

Following a strong growth in 2019, the Asset Finance sector has succumbed to the lack of confidence in terms of business investment. We review the latest figures from the Finance and Leasing Association report which highlight stalled growth in terms of volumes of business being written.

To close this Bulletin, with bank charges often a bone of contention, good news from TSB of an extension of its Free Banking offer for start ups and businesses switching their banking.

Is there a failure in UK corporate governance, particularly when it comes to payment practices? That’s a question being posed in a consultation paper issued by the government. Do you have comments or ideas to share?

Despite the apparent overall reluctance to borrow, we close our Bulletin by reviewing the latest figures from the Finance and Leasing Association. The statistics for business transacted to January 2018 reveal steady growth in the use of this form of finance.
