SME Finance Guide

In November 2012, the government published a new Finance Guide for SMEs (Small & Medium sized Enterprises) which will help small businesses understand the different types of finance available to them. The guide was produced by BIS in partnership with the Institute for Chartered Accountants for England and Wales (ICAEW) and it gives comprehensive details on funding options such as:

  • Debt finance
  • Equity finance
  • Commercial mortgages, leasing and complementary sources of debt finance
  • Mezzanine finance

The SME Finance guide can be downloaded from the related document section on the right of the page.
