Half of SMEs struggle to access finance
Almost half of UK SMEs have experienced barriers in accessing finance, a new report has found.
When surveyed, nearly half of 1000 UK SMEs said they had experienced barriers when they looked for finance, while just 19% said their bank met their needs.
According to a new report by Close Brothers:
- Nearly half of UK SMEs have experienced barriers when looking for finance
- Just 19% say their bank met their needs
- One in four SMEs has been turned down for funding when they looked to grow
Despite this, almost three-quarters said they still perceived a bank loan as a suitable way for them to get finance, perhaps because historically SMEs have only had banks to turn to for finance.
