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

Autumn 2017

It's been a while since I updated our blog. That means we've been busy!!

The summer has come and gone with the lead up to the summer being very brisk. Lots of opportunities which we've been able to work with clients on. The summer break has shown a move to a more 'continental' approach to summer vacations, where thinsgs have slowed over the school holidays.

I'm glad to report that things are back to normal and we are working with clients in more ways than ever before

We are always delighted to work with clients new and exisiting for all of their funding requirements, but are now working with an increasing number on a consultancy basis, assisting with cashflow, process improvement and working with the clients to improve stakeholder relations. We have also launched CC Recovery Solutions which assists with - outsourced credit control services - commercial debt recovery - receivables management services
