Tim gave an overview of the current commercial finance market place, highlighting alternative funding sources, including the Government backed Recovery Loan Scheme.

Jonathan pointed out the real need for a Specialist in properly identifying tax reliefs for Commercial Property owners, savings that are in fact regularly missed. He added that “Ignorance really isn’t bliss”.
