Pre-Budget Commentary From Lloyds Bank's Regional Director For The North West
Jenny France, area director for the North West at Lloyds Bank, said:
“We know that many businesses in the North West are optimistic about their trading prospects and, despite a challenging economic environment, around nine in ten are setting their sights on growth in the next six months.
“That said, business leaders in the region will be keen to hear what the Chancellor announces in his Autumn Statement in the hopes that he will deliver measures to help them unlock the capital they need to invest in growth. For instance, many larger firms are hopeful the capital allowance changes announced in Spring will be made permanent.
“Whatever is announced on Wednesday, we’ll be by the side of businesses in the North West to help them access the funding and support they need to grow.”
