The real lending picture.
According to the latest report from Cambridge University, they have analysed data which shows 80% of lending is provided by the UK's four major banks. It further added that since 2011 banks have withdrawn £5.7m a day in small business overdrafts alone, cutting available credit by £8.4bn. It is no surprise then when according to the The Bank of England, it is still struggling to make banks to lend more money to businesses. It's latest report on its Funding for Lending Scheme (FLS), which started in 2012, shows that net lending by banks that are part of the FLS scheme fell by £6.9bn in the fourth quarter of 2014. Often, the thought of visiting the bank brings back visions of going into the headmaster's study, that feeling of both apprehension and inferiority.

The fact that the Project Merlin agreement between the government and the banks has missed its lending target by over £1 billion. According to the latest report from the Bank of England, lending by the banks has fallen every year since 2009, and last year alone, dropped by almost 10% . A lack of lending translates to a lack of growth.

Figures from the Bank of England under the Project Merlin deal showed that total net lending from the five main UK banks' fell in every quarter since 2012. The Federation of Small Business said "Talking to our members, 30% of them say they missed a growth opportunity because they weren't able to access finance at the right times, so there is still a problem." On top of this. one UK Bank announced that it had changed its lending policy and will no longer provide asset finance or leasing to companies with turnover less than £5m a year.
The banks were very good to offer equipment leasing or equipment finance in fine weather, but as soon as the storm clouds arrived, they just disappeared, leaving you in the rain and the dark.
