Too few Cornish businesses have discovered that they qualify for a Government-funded ‘Growth Voucher’ to help them boost their profits.
This is the view Bishop Fleming’s head of grants, Ewan McClymont.
He said: “Vince Cable’s department has not been great at publicising the availability of Growth Vouchers for independent SMEs.
“These vouchers can be used to obtain expert guidance on many different areas, including business strategy and financial planning, aimed at boosting growth and profits.
“Britain’s economic recovery will be led by the growth of independent small businesses, but most owners of those businesses have little knowledge of the financial help that is now available to them.”
