Research has shown that more entrepreneurs than ever before are experiencing major issues with financing a small business, with SME owners hit the hardest.
Begbies Traynor’s Red Flag Alert report analysed the financial health of UK businesses, and found that a huge 91% of businesses who reported financial worries at the end of 2016 were small and medium sized companies.
In December 2016, over a quarter of a million British SME owners declared that they were having ‘significant’ financial problems. 23% of these struggling businesses were located in London, an increase of 5% on the previous year.
The findings show the fragility of the UK small business sector, with lack of funding revealed as one of the main reasons for money worries. Financing a small business can be difficult when dealing with fears over poor cash flow, and business growth can be restricted as a result.
The report also highlighted business concerns surrounding the current Brexit discussions, and the effect that this will have on companies. Over a fifth of UK company owners said that they were worried about rising costs following the vote and are now taking a more cautious approach to business development.
