Portland Business & Financial Solutions The way forward, made brighter


  1. Would an increase in interest rates lead to a rise in business insolvency?

    As we are all aware, the financial turmoil which the UK economy has seen in recent years has resulted in interest rates falling to historic lows. The recent rise in inflation and the potential increase in interest rates could be a ‘double whammy’ for some businesses. As inflation rises, the pound falls and the economy slows. At the present time, the UK is not experiencing strong growth in all sectors as growth slowed by 0.2% in the first quarter of 2017.
