Wesleyan Bank to showcase commercial finance solutions for SMEs at the Northern Business Exhibition

Wesleyan will also unveil new report on SME attitudes to external finance borrowing

Wesleyan Bank, a leading provider of commercial finance solutions to SMEs, will outline how businesses can unlock vital funds through its short-term loan and asset finance products on stand F22 at The Northern Business Exhibition (14-15 April 2016, Event City, Manchester).

The inaugural Northern Business Exhibition is a premier conference for SMEs and start-ups in the North West of England and is expected to attract 10,000 attendees. In addition to offering face-to-face advice from more than 150 exhibitors, the show will include a comprehensive variety of free seminars and workshops containing business boosting features.

Following its integration of specialist finance provider Syscap as a wholly owned subsidiary, Wesleyan Bank has recently extended its range of commercial finance products to SMEs which cover short-term loan and lease products to fund expenses such as tax and VAT bills and insurance premiums. In addition, the company's asset finance solutions assist businesses to purchase specialist equipment, such as plant and machinery or IT software, to mitigate increased competition and fulfil greater expectations of customer service.

Wesleyan Bank is also a guest exhibitor of The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), who will run the Finance Zone at the exhibition to advise SMEs which funding solutions are the right fit for them. The ICAEW has recently endorsed Wesleyan Bank as a Members Rewards Partner for commercial products to its members.

Sean Read, Director of Sales and Marketing at Wesleyan Bank, comments, "As a trusted and award-winning provider of specialist finance products to SMEs, we can offer tailored solutions to help them achieve their strategic goals. This includes arranging regular monthly repayments at short notice to alleviate the cash flow burden from quarterly VAT bills or supporting businesses to invest in new assets or major renovations to their office premises to distinguish themselves against their competitors."

As well as providing expert advice on the extensive lending options available to the SME sector on stand F22, Wesleyan will launch its new report at the show, 'SME attitudes to finance'. The report incorporates research from over 500 business owners about their awareness of external funding and willingness to take high personal risks to secure their firm's future.

Read adds, "While some businesses can see the benefits of external finance, our research highlights that others are still being held back by fears around borrowing and a lack of knowledge which could be stifling their ability to grow.

"Our experienced team of experts will be on hand throughout the exhibition to demonstrate how flexible funding options can enable SMEs to better plan for the future by assisting them to manage both day-to-day cash demands and longer term investment needs."
