The findings of a recent survey found that while finance is limited throughout the country the situation is much worse for small business owners situated up north than it is for their southern counterparts. However, today the findings of this report have been questioned by The Forum of Finance and Funding.
The body conducted its own research into the apparent north south funding divide and its findings were completely different from the initial research.
Indeed, the FFF research found that there is actually more public sector funding available in the North than in the south.
Stephen Morris, spokesperson of the Forum of Finance and Funding, comments on the reports; “While we don’t entirely dispute previous research it is clear that contrasting finding of our survey reveals the need for more research to be done into the North South finance divide.”
