Is it getting easier to obtain business finance?

In our opinion  obtaining business finance is still not getting any easier. Banks in particular are dammed if they do and dammed if they don’t. Onone hand we can proportion some of the blame to the banks for their cavalier lending policy over the years. However don’t forget that the greed of the consumer and lack of regulation from the government is partly to blame. On the other hand the banks have crawled into their shells mainly through lack of availability of cash but also because the quality of the applications they are seeing probably doesn’t meet their lending criteria. Admittedly the lending criteria has probably tightened but who came blame the banks when most of the UK’s SME businesses appear to be on a knife edge.

The good news is that their there are plenty of independent business finance insitutions coveing invoice discounting , factoring , commercials mortgages, trade finance and asset based lending providing viable and accessible alternatives to the high street banks
