Bibby Financial Services: Micro-Enterprises


Micro-enterprises may well be small in the grand scheme of things, but their contribution to the UK economy is unescapable – with 95 per cent of all private sector businesses classified as micro-businesses (one to nine employees). Family run and small-staffed companies are a central part of the business landscape here in the UK, and act as inspiration to many.

Benefiting from Specialist Funding

Multi-tasking, resilient, flexible and determined, micro-business owners in 2014 are what’s great about trade and enterprise within the UK today. And with such tenacity and well-grounded work ethics, it’s really encouraging to see that our country’s home-grown business owners can benefit from specialist funding and finance.

Forward Finance

Services such as Forward Finance can help small businesses to guarantee dependable cashflow, and bring about more security as a result. Micro-enterprises can use alternative forms of funding to release cash tied up in invoices, so that they can get back to doing what they do best – running their business.
