This year, 2020, is a challenging time for UK businesses, regardless of their size or the sector or region in which they operate.
Economic uncertainty can affect the cashflow and working capital requirements of many small and medium-sized businesses.
The British Business Bank and ICAEW have updated the Business Finance Guide to help business owners navigate the challenges they currently face. It’s a completely independent source of information — it does not sell any type of finance product or solution.
If you’re worried about running out of money to cover operating costs and wages, or you want to be better prepared during this uncertain time, the Business Finance Guide removes all the confusing jargon around cash and working capital. It includes practical information from industry experts to help you overcome the obstacles your business currently encounters.
