Previse wins major grant from Banking Competition Remedies

Previse has been awarded a £2.5m grant by the Banking Competition Remedies’ Capability and Innovation Fund.

The money, which will be used to fund further development of Previse’s industry leading instant payments solution, was won after a competitive application process that saw £20m dispersed to 6 companies, as part of the BCR’s mission to facilitate the commercialisation of financial technology relevant to SMEs.

How Previse is supporting SMEs through this late payments crisis

The economic fallout from coronavirus is intensifying the ongoing problem of late payments. Previse is proud to be approved for accreditation by the British Business Bank under the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS). CBILS loans will be available through our InstantFlow Cash Account solution, enabling SMEs instant access to the money they’re owed by their customers.

A better future

For more than a decade large firms have been able to support their suppliers with a range of supply chain finance (SCF) options. Yet, uptake of these programmes by SME suppliers has remained limited

Asking the right questions on slow payments

As the Government announces new enhanced powers for the Small Business Commissioner to tackle late payments, Paul Christensen, CEO and co-founder of Previse, points out that, unless these are coupled with reform to Prompt Payment reporting, they are unlikely to lead to practical changes for SME suppliers.

Retailers can’t embrace independent suppliers until they tackle payment terms

It’s many entrepreneurs’ dream; that first big contract from a retailer which launches your start-up brand onto the national stage. It should be time to celebrate your success, but for many small firms this is the start of a new financial nightmare. To support these independent suppliers realise their potential, retailers need to become more flexible about their payment terms.
