with the winner being revealed at the National Business Awards gala
dinner held on 13th November in London.
Judge for the category Martyn Hart, CEO National Outsourcing Association, commented “Through its Spot Factoring solution, Working Capital Partners Ltd (WCP) is providing the flexibility and rapid functionality that is enabling SMEs to trade and grow.”
Perry Burns, Managing Director of Working Capital Partners Ltd,
said “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this highly
prestigious award, beating much larger organisations to the honour. It
is testament to the importance of the alternative sources of funding
that we provide to businesses nationwide. We are now financing more than
£1m per month and growing fast as the banks struggle to provide the
flexibility and service that we are able to provide to the smaller
businesses who might otherwise have failed were it not for the
facilities that we offer.”
