Getting hold of the right furniture for your office is vital. Without suitable desks, chairs, storage items and other products, your working environment wouldn’t be able to function. Thankfully, there are plenty of products on the market that should meet your needs.
The trouble is, if you’re not careful, you can end up spending too much on your computer chairs and other resources and, particularly now given the tough economic conditions affecting the UK and many other countries, this could prove disastrous.
Funding initiative failing SMEs
Drawing attention to the difficult circumstances being faced by small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Britain, independent finance provider Syscap recently claimed that the government’s Funding for Lending Scheme is failing to help smaller firms.
Launched in August of this year, the initiative lowered the cost of borrowing for banks and other lenders, which were then required to pass on these reduced costs on to their own customers.
Research conducted by Syscap has revealed that the interest rates on new bank loans of under £1 million rose from an average of 3.76 per cent in the second financial quarter of 2012 to 3.85 per cent during the third quarter. According to the organisation, this shows the lending scheme has made little impact on the cost of borrowing for SMEs.
More support needed
Responding to the findings, Syscap CEO Philip White said: “There is too much speculation ahead of Monetary Policy Committee meetings over whether interest rates will rise or not. That uncertainty is damaging for businesses. The Bank of England could remove that uncertainty.”
He added: “It is widely accepted that economic recovery will not take hold until the SMEs recover so it would be great to see the new Bank of England governor deliver more practical support to that vital part of the economy.”
