  • Bigging-up the banks - Shropshire Business Today
    for finance is not successful is affordability and projected cash flow In this area banks don t take risks Nevertheless in Q2 of 2013 more than 100 000 loans and overdrafts were approved 70 per cent of applications totalling 6 3 billion an increase on the April June figure for last year Ms Graham also pointed out that anxiety about the economic situation has also held back investment to the extent that SMEs alone are sitting on 130 billion in cash deposits rising to 170 billion across the whole corporate sector What we are anxious to see is the green shoots of recovery leading to more investment taking place by businesses and the gross lending figures being driven further forward But what about those interest rates being demanded by the banks and other financial institutions Here said the BBA executive Chancellor George Osborne s Funding for Lending scheme is definitely helping providing liquidity funding to allow institutions to pass on benefits to businesses at reduced costs and interest rates It is proving itself both on the mortgage side and on the business side she said Insufficient competition Another complaint is that the five big banking groups dominate the market to such an extent that there is insufficient competition to drive down rates However Ms Graham pointed out that the not for profit BBA alone has 170 banking members and that altogether there are around 500 finance providers to businesses I do think there is competition there is good competition We are pro competition There is a large range of finance providers to business and that s important for people to realise Isn t it true however that banks are caught in a hard place between Treasury and regulatory demands for them to build up their capital and the loud demands for greater lending to businesses We are supporters of all the legislation that is in play or coming into play The UK banks have already rebuilt their balance sheets and got more liquidity It s a very strong banking environment built up around the new regulations being implemented said Ms Graham However she stressed that regulation had to be proportionate particularly where it affected smaller players in the market All banks including the big banks are open for business for SMEs They have ample money to lend to businesses which have viable propositions and demonstrate that in their business plans We have got money that we want to put into business We want to see demand that investment picking up so that we can get that money out there She said the banking industry recognised in 2010 that its bond with business was broken and had set out on a concerted drive to rebuild trust and confidence in the industry We have been improving customer relations improving access to finance and improving transparency and information to support business generally One of the initiatives has been the creation of a free mentoring service to give advice to anyone who wants to

  • Is this Shropshire's youngest pub landlady? - The Old Lion Inn
    the old public house a spring clean new lick of paint and added a few decorations Emma who is known to everyone as Sip since aquiring the nickname ten years ago also made some changes to the drinks she wanted to offer her customers I also changed some of the beers and ciders and added new drinks including inventing some new cocktails and naming them after all the staff Emma admits she was aware that there were some who did think she was too young to step into the role But over the past seven months it can certainly be argued that Emma has proved her detractors wrong She says A lot of people were very sceptical when they heard I was the new licensee due to the fact I was only 18 years old At first I was slightly disheartened but then thought well I may as well give it all I ve got and prove them wrong which I believe I have My family had enormous amounts of faith in me from the start and that s what I think gave me the confidence to go for it My parents have always said I am quite mature for my age You have a lot of enthusiasm when you re young but the disadvantage is that people can think you re too young to handle difficult situations I think I ve proved that I can handle whatever is thrown at me and also continue doing my job with passion and enjoyment Considering I m only 19 I would say I have a very good business mind Ironically Emma was dropped from the bar apprenticeship course she was studying for last year When I first started working at the Lion I was doing a bar apprenticeship course but unfortunately I

  • Battling for business - Shropshire Business Today
    turnover employing 130 000 people and we need to allow it access to private capital It s absurd that it s competing for taxpayers money with schools and hospitals said the minister We chatted just five days after the Budget in the week that energy was added to his portfolio and by then there had been no sign of a repeat of the omnishambles reaction to George Osborne s caravans and pasty package of 2012 A puzzled frown appeared on the minister s face when I suggested that critics of the 2013 Budget had described it as just tinkering at the edges Michael Fallon conducts a press interview at the Cadbury factory Bournville Welcomed It has been largely welcomed by the business community We have cut corporation tax again and every business benefits from the employment allowance which means employers get the first 2 000 off their national insurance bill All five million businesses from Tesco to your corner shop will benefit Mr Fallon accepted that it had not been a big bang Budget as some economists and Tory MPs had called for It was fiscally neutral There was no great lurch no dramatic increases in tax or cuts in spending We had some money to spend because of good cost control across Whitehall One of the biggest gripes we hear all the time from small businesses is the difficulty they have in gaining access to finance at affordable interest rates When I wondered would the proposed Business Bank be up and running to provide competition to the big four high street conglomerates Mr Fallon said that the proposal had only been unveiled last October and certain details had to be cleared by the European Commission in Brussels but the objective was to get the bank operating as soon as possible We are pressing banks to increase their take up of lending schemes and we are pressing the Bank of England to widen Funding for Lending so that more money gets through to SMEs rather than mortgages Funding for Lending in which the Bank pours out money to big banks at very advantageous rates isn t loved by everyone because it means banks do not have to strive for savers by offering higher interest rates Funding for Lending is starting to do the job but the problem is that it s an indiscriminate single pot of money and the Bank of England cannot direct funds specifically to SMEs It s easier for banks to use the money for mortgages said Mr Fallon The minister and Business Secretary Vince Cable met the Deputy Governor of the Bank of England Paul Tucker during Budget week to press for the scheme to be refined in order to help SMEs Representatives of small firms fear that the decision by the Bank of England at the end of March to order the big banks to raise 25 billion in new capital will serve only to further squeeze the amounts set aside for loans to businesses
