Late payment

We recently brought together a group of members who work in, and with, SMEs and the UK’s Small Business Commissioner, Liz Barclay, for a wide-ranging discussion about current issues affecting small businesses in Scotland, with a particular focus on late payment. We’ll be doing more work on this topic soon and hope you can get involved to give us your feedback – keep an eye out for our late payment poll.

SME Tracker Poll

The ACCA/Corporate Finance SME Tracker survey continues to be a great way to keep abreast of issues affecting SME businesses in Scotland. Our results for the poll are often picked up in the media – if you’ve not yet signed up to participate in our surveys, you can do so on the Member Insights Community page.

Support for firms in Scotland

As energy costs continue to rocket for business, you may find Business Energy Scotland useful. Wider information about business support and funding can be accessed at; it’s well worth signing up for their regular email alerts which can flag new support and funding opportunities.
