Lending Drought Continues?

Lending Drought Continues?
Posted on October 10, 2012 |

I think that we are all aware the the UK economy is just bumping along, and one of the main causes of this is the current lending drought. In a recent survey by the British Chambers of Commerce, when asked about government-backed finance schemes, 43% of businesses had not heard of any of them, with younger businesses and micro firms more than likely totally unaware of them. Let me shout this out now, we can  and do help new start business.   Baring this in mind, it is of no surprise that we are simply bumping along with  little growth.

Growth will only come from investment in new equipment or new ventures. These will in turn bring the extra jobs that the economy needs. I have said it before, and will say it again, you simply cannot stand still, this is a dangerous myth. You either go forward or backwards.

It is the companies who see an opportunity to grow or to move into new markets that will drag this country out of the present position that we find ourselves in at the moment.

Oak Leasing has access to some large funders with very deep pockets. Take for instance, just this week, we have just arranged a credit line for €750K for a European company who are investing in its future. On the other hand, we have just arranged a new shopfit for a pharmacy. What I am saying is if you need any new equipment, be it plant, machinery or shopfitting, we have the funds available now to help you grow.

Don’t keep your horizons just fixed on the UK, Europe is a massive market. We can help you arrange an European vendor programme to help you sell more of your equipment to new markets. We are real people in the same real world as you,  so come and talk to us about your plans, and see how we can help you escape this drought and show you fertile areas to grow your business.

Unless you give us a call, we cannot help you!
