Finance struggle on the highstreet

25 July 2018

Gaucho is the latest in a string of high street restaurant and retail chains to run come into trading difficulty.

Prezzo, Byron and Jamie’s Italian have also faced difficult decisions to reduce or rationale their operations.

Rising business rates and minimum wage costs as well as a slowdown in consumer spending has put pressure on the hospitality and retail sectors.

In the case of Gaucho, a £1m tax bill put the business into crisis and an administrator has been appointed.

There may have been underlying trading issues and the financial position is not clear. However, if your business faces an immediate cash injection to ride out difficult times, have you considered a short-term business loan?
