As the Government unveils its new campaign to encourage businesses to cut their prices, we caught up with Time Finance CEO, Ed Rimmer, to find out what this latest move really means for businesses as they continue to grapple with the cost of doing business crisis.
Business demands are constantly changing, but the rising cost of doing business, supply chain concerns, and cashflow challenges we've seen throughout 2022 have just made finding the right solution to suit those needs that much more difficult.
In a business landscape that’s becoming increasingly preoccupied with increasing costs and challenges to remain competitive, investment in upskilling staff and an attention to employee satisfaction is something that firms should be putting to the top of their priority list.

Against the backdrop of one of the most turbulent and challenging periods for UK businesses, many looked to last week’s Spring Statement in the hopes that the Government would announce pro-active measures that would help firms grapple with rising costs, National Insurance and tax hikes, skills shortages, soaring energy and fuel prices, and ongoing supply chain disruption. Ed Rimmer tells Leasing Life magazine why now is the time for the alternative finance industry to really step up and provide headroom for growth:
With rising energy and labour costs to staff shortages, supply chain issues and rising inflation, the need for adaptation and greater flexibility from the finance industry is key. Brokers play an important role in identifying what needs to be done to help their clients to overcome challenges and unlock new potential for growth and prosperity. To uncover what the lending industry must do to keep up the momentum and harness change, we sat down with some of our intermediary partners to hear what they had to say.
Yesterday's Spring Statement revealed a number of promises to support businesses in the Autumn Budget later this year. Reviewing the announcements made, our CEO Ed Rimmer explains why there needs to be a focus on financial aid and support to SMEs now to ensure that they have the steps in place to increase their wage bills and in-turn help employees meet the rising cost of living.
Fuel duty freezes and policies to tackle labour shortages and help mobilise global supply chains are a must for next week’s Spring Statement, according to Ed Rimmer, Chief Executive of Time Finance.
