The Office for National Statistics has revealed that, between April and June this year, business investment in the UK has increased by 2.5%. The statistics included in this article are exciting, demonstrating the trends of investment made.
We are working with many of our clients to free up liquidity to purchase assets such as machinery, property and stock, who fall within this bracket of growth. Our clients are continuing to use invoice finance and asset based lending to advance business, and I am confident that alternative finance is a flexible way to increase investment.
Compared to the same period last year, business investment rose 2.5 per cent to £45.6bn, meaning firms bought more non-financial assets like machinery and property than they did last year.
