Finance for business
Businesses looking for funding can access information on the finance available from a number of different sources.
These include websites such as GOV.UK that has a business finance search facility www.gov.uk/business-finance-support-finder
Government has also backed the development of the BUSINESS IS GREAT BRITAIN website which includes information on the varied finance options open to business including alternative finance such as from peer to peer lending providers.
The alternative business funding website aims to bring together alternative finance providers to enable SME’s to find the most appropriate funding for them www.alternativebusinessfunding.co.uk
The banks, with the support of the British Bankers Association also developed a website to provide advice and support, related to finance www.businessfinanceforyou.co.uk
