Benefits of Hire Purchase and Lease Plans for Businesses

Hire purchase was originally developed in the United Kingdom, but if you are in the United States, you may know it as a “rent-to-own” plan. Hire purchase for a vehicle means that you will be paying for said vehicle or vehicles, whether it be new or used, in instalments rather than upfront. Whilst you are paying in instalments, you will have use of the vehicle, therefore you do not have to wait until all the instalments are paid off to gain access to it (source:…

The Benefits of Monthly Finance

The concept of taking out a loan of financial product and repaying over the course of a number of weeks or month is nothing new.

The Benefits of Business Networking Events

Networking places a huge role in gaining, growing and maintaining relationships with those in the business world, and particularly in your own sector of business. Whilst modern day methods such as Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and Pay-per-Click (PPC) are great ways to increase your business’ online presence, networking events allow you to meet face to face with like-minded and interested businesses and potential clients that online simply doesn’t do. Some businesses may even take out…

Securing Empty and Vacant Properties in the UK

There are many reasons why a property may be empty, sometimes for long periods of time. There may be damage awaiting repair, which makes the property unlivable in its current state, there may be excessive asbestos or other hazardous waste material like needles from squatters awaiting professional removal or perhaps there is simply nobody putting themselves forward to take the property for other reasons.

The Benefits of Specialised Recruitment

The recruitment industry overall, gets a bad press for several reasons. They cold-call thousands of people on a daily basis, they reach out via email and social media platforms endlessly and once they get you on the phone, it often seems like you can never hang up or leave the call. Even when you do hang up, unless you signed up specifically to be recruited, there is always the concern of where they got your details from, who they will pass them on to and when they will be back in…

A Humanitarian Approach to Product Sourcing

No matter where in the UK we live, it is hard to avoid noticing the lack of attention to detail when looking at the sourcing of most of the products we buy, see on shelves and walk by every day. After all, how many of us know where that chocolate bar, computer, mobile phone or piece of furniture is from?

The truth is that the product offering, profit margins and marketing take a more important place in the pecking order than the place of origin. However, there are an increasing number…

We are all familiar with the many jobs and roles of ‘traditional’ high street banks. We use them for a huge number of purposes ranging in size and speciality.
