“We are facing an unprecedented economical event in light of the COVID-19 outbreak, and it has a lot of businesses both large and small, extremely worried about the financial implications. There is a very real threat of closures, redundancies, debt accumulation and bankruptcies. With our background in the financial industry, we only thought it would only be right to share our knowledge and expertise with other businesses to help them through this torrid time.

“The government has made several announcements, including Rishi Sunak, Chancellor of the Exchequer, pledging billions to help with staffing costs, and deference of VAT payments for the next quarter. But the exact details on who is eligible and how to claim has not been made clear to the wider public. This is where we can help. Marginal Gains are a boutique consultancy offering money saving solutions for SMEs and large corporations. We mainly focus on utilities, energy, merchant services and EV solutions, but we all came from a business finance background.

“Armed with our knowledge and resources, we are able to confidently provide impartial advice on things like how you can cover staffing costs, business rates and navigate the government loans initiative, which can provide up to £5m for small businesses.”
