Who we are

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.
