Business funding may get a boost

The woes suffered by smaller enterprises in attempting to secure finance have been well documented. But 2011 may herald at least a partial easing of the credit squeeze.

The UK’s major high street banks have indicated that they will lend an extra £10 billion to small businesses this year. In 2010, the banks loaned some £60 billion to smaller enterprises.

After a meeting with the Chancellor, George Osborne and Business Secretary, Vince Cable, in December representatives of the UK’s largest banks suggested that small business lending may rise to £70 billion in 2011.
