As we’re sure you’re aware, the deadline for your tax payment is just around the corner. With Christmas already a busy time of year, many smaller businesses may not have considered this costly expense. In a recent survey we conducted, nearly one in five admit they don’t forward plan for Christmas and the New Year.
So, how do you pay yours?
For most of Britain's smaller business owners, asking your bank for money is an experience you’d rather not repeat. Typically, many businesses will turn to their banks to ask for the money, but not only can it be a long and bureaucratic process, it is estimated that 45% of smaller businesses are unsuccessful when obtaining finance. The funding gap for smaller businesses could be as much as £35bn. 
- Cash flow?
Businesses will use their own funds to pay the bill, dipping into their cash flow to make a one-off payment. However, this can be at the cost of developing other areas of the business, pushing back investment in much needed equipment or staff and ultimately restricting potential growth.
