When I tell you that ICAEW stands for the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales you’ll probably have stopped reading by the end of this sentence – DON’T!
One of their senior people is part of the Number 10 Angel Expert Group that I’ve been attending. They are pretty proactive and have recently produced a best-practice guide for SME Finance. The guide aims to help entrepreneurs learn how to raise finances and support business growth. It also outlines some of the financing options and key issues that should be considered when looking for financing opportunities. There is a vast amount of information on various topics, such as investment readiness, equity financing, debt financing, etc. If you would like to learn more about financing options for your company, please check out the guide.
