South Shields Banking & Business Finance
Money, Money, Money
Do you run a small business in South Shields and need a business bank account or to obtain funding for your business?
Making sure that your business has sufficient funding in the early stages is critical and there are a number of money based subjects that you need to consider.
Do You Need Money To Start Your Business?
It wasn't that long ago that borrowing from your bank, friends, or relatives were pretty much the only available options if you need to raise money to start your business. How times have changed!
While some high street banks are still an option for a robust proposition with match funding or the security of the equity in your home, many start-ups have found that traditional bank loan facilities are no longer a realistic hope.
Thankfully, a whole new world of 'alternative funding' is emerging. You may or may not have heard (apparently 95% of UK businesses survey haven't) of equity based crowd funding, reward based crowd funding, peer-to-peer lending, pension-led funding, invoice trading, debt-based securities business angels and private investing (as seen on TV's Dragon's Den).
The government also recognises that start-ups can play their part in the economy as potential tax payers and employers hence the introduction of the start-up loan company.
Grants - some areas do have grants available to aid new businesses. They tend to be location and/or sector dependent but a fanstatic boost for anyonee who qualifies.
The only problem now is knowing which of these is likely to be best for you!
