By Rob Warlow
Tackling late payment to help small businesses with mounting cashflow problems has been a focus for the government. In this latest Business Finance Bulletin, we look at new regulations now in force designed to keep pressure on larger businesses to pay on time. With Brexit underway, a survey from Ratesetter Business Finance reveals that small businesses appear to be resilient and confident when it comes to growth and investment plans. We also look at research from Barclays Bank on how small businesses are reacting to rising costs. Finally, we share news from the recent formed Association of Alternative Business Finance on three new additions to its membership to bolster its aim of improving transparency and standards in the industry.
