As the Business Growth Fund celebrates its 5th birthday, in this episode of the Business Finance Bulletin, we look at the level of support it has been giving growing businesses in need of finance.

Late payment affects many small businesses, but a new report from Ormsby Street sheds light on which business is the worst late payer out of all the High Street retailers. If you supply this business, then you need to manage your cashflow very carefully.

Staying with cashflow, we look why actively planning your cashflow requirements is important, especially with the year-end approaching.
