Katie Teasdale, head of policy said: “It has never been more important for businesses to be able to access funding so that they can invest, fill order books and hire more staff. It is key to economic growth.”
The Chamber is holding an event to help businesses understand the different financial options available.
Representatives from the UK’s five major banks, Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds, RBS and Santander will be present at the Better Business Finance morning seminar on 6 October to explain the support they can provide locally, particularly for small businesses. Companies will also have the chance to ask questions on issues which concern them.
There will also be opportunities to learn about alternative funding routes, the price and availability of credit, how to write a perfect business plan to apply for funding and how a mentor can help.
