Who are we?

Corporate and Commercial Business Solutions Group (CCBSG) has its roots in providing innovative funding solutions for SME businesses in an ever changing funding landscape.

Traditional sources and forms of funding do not always provide the desired level of facilities needed by growing businesses, so they need to cast their net a little wider, but often are unsure as to where to look. Fortunately, there is 'credit appetite' from lenders who are keen to assist.

Having launched CCBSG in 2014 it became apparent that SME's were not only looking for help with their funding solutions, but were also keen to have wider support and so we have extended our offering across three areas, Funding, Advisory and Investment.

This gives us the opportunity to help businesses, not only with their funding, but with additional business consultancy services. Our move to www.ccbsg.co.uk allows us to showcase our wider Group offering. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with us to find out more

December 2018

As the Festive period descends upon us it's time to wish a very Merry Christmas to all of our clients, intermediaries, professionals and funders who have supported us throughout the year

2018 has been a phenomenal year of growth for Corporate and Commercial Business Solutions Group, with revenue up by over 100%, the team expanding with Matthew Lister joining the business to drive the commercial finance side forward, and our broader offering of consultancy and receivables management services arm really establishing themselves

2019 looks equally as exciting and it would be great to be here saying the same message in 12 months time, with some additional members of the team

We could not do this without the incredible support of our clients, the wider North East business community and our strategic partners and I would like to thank them and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year

Hopefully we can get some time in the New Year to share with you all some of the key successes and highlights, but in the meantime enjoy a lovely family break
