Posted in Business Finance Bulletin

To open our latest Bulletin, a look at the announcement from the Banking Competition Remedies team of three new awards made smaller banks looking to challenge the SME banking status quo. What will the recipients do with their share of the £80 million awarded?

In these Bulletins we often consider why it’s important to know your numbers, but what if you don’t know what questions to ask? A new guide released on the key questions to ask could help make the process easier and boost both your chances of obtaining finance and improving profits.

To close, a look at how high growth tech companies could benefit from a fund backed by British Business Investments. The fund will finance growth plans and recognises that shareholders don’t like giving away too much of their company to investors.

Posted in Business Finance Bulletin

To start our latest Bulletin, a call from the FSB for the Chancellor to take a tough stance on late payment. With the annual Spring Statement a few weeks away, the FSB is seeking three commitments from the government to tackle late payment.

To support small businesses in need of finance, we have news from the British Business Bank that its subsidiary, British Business Investments, has made £20m available to alternative lender Thin Cats. Could you use a slice of that funding?

No Bulletin would be the same without the mention of that ‘B’ word! To close, an announcement from Barclays that is it to hold a series of Brexit Workshops across the UK in March to help business owners plan ahead.
