Free Start Your Own Business Book

Start Your Own Business in 2017

Start Your Own Business in 2017

This 180 page book is packed with start-up information and contact details designed to help you start your business successfully.

We have been running SYOB for over 10 years now and have accumulated an enormous amount of information which could make the difference between start-up success or failure.

Starting a business is easy but keeping it going and making a profit is a completely different proposition. The good news is that there are tried and tested 'rules' which have consistently proved to work.

As the old addage says 'you don't know what you don't know'!

You can download the whole book now (free of charge).

BANKING

IGF Invoice Finance Ltd
Igf Invoice Finance Ltd

http://www.igfgroup.com
The major banks are failing to meet the needs of the SME market. They are inflexible, expect high levels of security for all their lending, and lack any sympathy with, or understanding of, their SME customers.

Does your bank spend time listening to your business needs? If your business experienced any financial difficulties, can you rely on their support?

Unlike the major banks and major commercial finance providers, IGF is available when you need us. We will ensure we really understand your business and its needs. We will listen and we will care about your goals. We see the relationship as a long term partnership and your success is our success.

We value your business; so we do what we promise and won't let you down. We work in a friendly yet highly professional way; championing the needs of the SME. It's why we are so often recommended, not only by our existing clients, but also by accountants and financial consultants throughout the UK. It's why we are challenging the established finance providers and big name institutions; and, it's why we are clearly a better finance partner for your business

IGF are a leading independent Invoice Finance provider and have been established for over 15 years. The business is part of ABFA (Asset Based Finance Association) and is wholly owned by The Greater London Enterprise (GLE). This solid backing not only gives us a strong pedigree but it means we are ultimately owned by all of the London Boroughs.

IGF offer a broad suite of Invoice Finance and related services including Factoring, and Confidential Invoice Discounting along with sundry services such as payroll, direct debit collection, and short term loan facilities.
