Advice is on hand to help Birmingham SME’s grow

Businesses from throughout the City have come together at the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce to ‘ask the experts’ about obtaining finance and to talk about how to trade successfully in the current economic climate.

The Finance Surgery event – which was held at the Chamber’s offices in Harborne Road – was organised by the Chamber of Commerce, NatWest Commercial Banking and McGregors Corporate Accountants.

One of the key reasons for holding the event was to remove some of the mystery around funding options for SME’s and to help them understand the most appropriate funding solution for them. There was also support available to help businesses understand how banks assess funding requirements and how to work with accountants to explore funding and growth options.

The event proved so successful a second event is planned for 22nd March at the Chamber.

Commenting on the event, Claire Bunning from NatWest Commercial Banking, said: “For many SME’s the word to describe recent years has been “survival”, but now that economic prospects are slowly picking up discussions are beginning on how owners can make the most of their businesses. At NatWest we remain active and our appetite to support remains firmly intact as this event demonstrates. Our role as an experienced finance team remains unchanged. We are working with our colleagues and professional contacts such as the Chamber and McGregors to understand and support SME’s and events such as this really will help local businesses and the economy.

Steven Mugglestone from McGregors Corporate Accountants added: “An event like this shows why it is crucial for businesses to work with more commercial accountants to explore the most appropriate business structures, taxation, funding and business growth options, rather than just number crunchers.”
