December 2020

The December edition of the NACFB’s flagship magazine, Commercial Broker, is out now. In our cover feature, NACFB managing director, Norman Chambers, looks at what happens when finance isn’t enough to help an SME survive and what brokers can do to support insolvent businesses. In the compliance update we set out the obligations required of intermediaries in the fight against financial crime. NACFB chair, Paul Goodman, assesses the impact on SMEs of HMRC’s new preferential creditor status.

This issue also features insights from headline sponsor, Lloyds Banking Group as well as Paragon Bank, Wesleyan Bank, Just Cashflow, Barclays, Knox Capital Solutions and Direct Asset Finance. Last but not least, we profile NACFB Patron, Swishfund and spend five minutes with Lucy Painter, director of FUNDING ROUND.
