Business Debt Problems-Unlocking Asset Value Could Be The Answer
It is no surprise that business debt has become an increasingly difficult burden for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to carry. Let's face it, the last few years may have been hard for businesses across sectors and irrespective of size, but they have born down particularly harshly on the smaller end of the enterprise sector.
For those smaller players, business debt can have a disproportionate effect on the bottom line. There are fewer options for cash flow management, and there is no deep stock inventory to dig into to weather out the storm of sluggish sales. Also, business managers at banks are decidedly less open to pleas for help from those customers that aren't at the top of their revenue generating list.
And because of the tough trading conditions, opportunities for business debt reduction have been much reduced, with cash flows into your business knocked sideways. Any attempt to reduce the cost of servicing that business debt, by raising funds on better terms from the banks, have been a non-starter, with spreads on credit for SMEs remaining stubbornly high.
Indeed the Bank of England, in its latest report (Credit Conditions Survey - 2010 Q1) on the state of the supply of credit for the SME and corporate sector has this to say:
"Price terms on new lending to small businesses were reported to have tightened somewhat, consistent with unchanged availability and higher-than-expected demand..."
So there appears to be no cavalry on the horizon, ready to rescue the finance director from his or her business debt woes.
With that in mind, what options are available for companies that are experiencing increasing difficulties in meeting their debt obligations? Have you considered the possibility of unlocking the intrinsic value of some of your fixed assets as a means to ending your business debt problems? If you own that most tangible of your assets, the bricks and mortar from which you operate, this really could be the lifeline that you need.
