Business Survival in a Post‑COVID World
Getting Your Business Back On Track
Welcome to the SFP Business Survival Website. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, UK businesses are facing unprecedented challenges, with a significant amount of companies experiencing financial difficulty.
In these extraordinary and uncertain times, one thing we all need right now is clarity.
As a business owner, knowing your options ultimately has to be the first step in deciding the right path for you. This website has been designed specifically to help business owners at any of the 3 key stages identified below.
The first stage is to determine whether or not your business can survive without having to borrow. The second stage is to look at certain funding options, from government backed funding schemes through to cash flow enhancing financial products. The third stage, on the basis you have properly explored the first two, is to also understand what restructuring and formal insolvency regimes (including the new options recently introduced in June 2020 by the Government) can be used, ensuring your Business can still survive.
If you already know which stage you are at and want to engage with us right away, feel free to call one of our experts on 0203 5877700 or request a call back here.
If not, don’t worry, we are offering a Free Company Health Check which could also involve assisting with cash flow forecasts providing transparency on the company’s future liquidity position.
Just click “Help me Decide” below and talk right now with one of our experts.

What our clients say
"Covid-19 has been a difficult time for most, had it not been for Kirsty I feel we would still be working through CBILS applications and going back and forth with banks. We just found it so much easier and reassuring to leave everything to her to manage for us. We appreciated the transparency with regards to managing our expectations and making sure she did what was right for us as a company. I have referred Kirsty to a few colleagues who have all had positive experiences. Many thanks to you Kirsty and the team at Touch for helping us during such a difficult time!"

"Absolutely fantastic service provided by Iain Kemp at Touch Financial. After speaking with a few brokers and companies directly about invoice factoring services for permanent recruitment, I couldn't find a rate that I was happy with but a quick call to Touch Financial resulted in being paired with an excellent facility that offered a very competitive fee structure. It took just over 2 weeks to set up and get the facility in place but I've just received my first drawdown and I'm absolutely delighted I made the call!!"
“We had the opportunity to use this service for a Customer in May 2018. The Metro RM and SFP visited and spent valuable time with the customer assessing the Arrears that had been accumulating and then offering a revisit in later months. SFP then summarised the position for us via a comprehensive e-mail which had the added benefit of satisfying our credit team. Monthly updates were scheduled via conference call so that we could monitor progress & then react quickly if deterioration was spotted. I would certainly use this service again in future and recommend it to others.“
