In light of current market conditions, an owner managed business may need to look beyond traditional forms of finance in order to fund growth and development.

Despite an availability of both traditional and innovative funding options, securing a suitable form of finance is increasingly challenging for many business owners.

With an array of funding options, from debt finance, asset-backed lending, private equity, tax incentivised lending (EIS and SEIS*) through to crowdfunding, it is not surprising that many owner managers feel overwhelmed.

The advantages and disadvantages of each option need to be clearly understood in order to assess their suitability.
