  • How To Conduct A Business Valuation

    There are many good reasons to look at valuing your business, whether it is to sell it, seek equity investment or apply for business finance. Just make sure you do your homework, prepare all your documents and understand exactly what is at stake.

  • How To Minimise Losses Using Business Rescue Loans

    It's not just small businesses and SMEs that need business rescue loans to get themselves out of a pickle, it happens to large corporations as well. It also happens to financial entities a whole lot bigger too.

    Take the case of Italian bank Veneto Banca, it recently needed over €17 billion euros in order to avoid closure and risk even more euros being sacrificed via Italian fiscal policy.

    Worse still was the Greek crisis, which lead Germany, France and Italy to lend over €360 billion via the IMF, European Central Bank and the European Commission. And still that hasn't worked (or ever was going to work).

    So having unenviable finances, or a business strategy that isn't working, doesn't just apply to businesses that find themselves on the wrong side of economic terms. Whether it's being on the wrong side of the pound when imports outweigh exports, or when incoming receivables are outweighed by supplier invoices. Every business has the potential to find themselves on the wrong side of the finance equation, so what are your options?
