Decline in business lending due to demand AND supply as banks tighten credit

Bank lending statistics came out recently which showed that businesses were borrowing ~$65 billion less than three years ago.  From a “demand” perspective, we know that many large businesses have either shunned debt or preferred to raise capital via the sharemarket.  However, there is also a “supply” side to this outcome whereby the credit criteria has tightened – particularly for small and medium sized businesses – which has restricted access to business lending.

Filling the void for SME’s is the debt factoring industry.  Factoring companies operate by financing invoices that SME’s have in their Accounts Receivable ledger which are waiting to be paid and represent a source of potential cash flow that the SME can use to drive their business forward.  By using products such as invoice discounting and invoice factoring, SME’s can unlock this cash and put their business back on track for success whilst achieving greater peace of mind for the small business owner.

    Throughout this great pattern of things you actually receive a B+ for effort. Where exactly you confused everybody was on the specifics. As it is said, the devil is in the details… And that couldn’t be more true here. Having said that, permit me reveal to you what exactly did give good results. Your article (parts of it) is certainly quite convincing and this is possibly why I am making the effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, despite the fact that I can certainly notice a jumps in reasoning you make, I am not sure of just how you seem to connect your details which in turn produce the actual final result. For right now I will, no doubt subscribe to your point however trust in the future you connect your dots much better.
