2020 has been a tumultuous year, creating financial challenges for growth companies. Many have seen reduced rates of growth or absolute declines in sales. Some have seen increased opportunities in what is a disrupted market. A majority of SMES have made use of Government initiatives such as Bounce Back Loans, VAT deferment schemes and Furlough.
We are now entering a new phase where we will see less Government support combined with a weakened economy. Business leaders need to look at both short and long term sustainability for their business, and that means combining both good debt management as well securing the right type of debt that can help you succeed, not drag the business down further.
Attendees will get insight and guidance in numerous areas.
● Managing existing debt and repayment schedules
● Calculating how much debt makes sense, and what level of cost you should expect
● Techniques for consolidating or replacing debt
● Types of debt available in the market
● Considerations for the business owner and minimising personal risk.
