Support for businesses affected by Carillion collapse

The collapse of construction giant Carillion has impacted upon thousands of small business suppliers and sub-contractors.

This week’s news that Carillion has gone into liquidation will have an immediate impact upon suppliers who are owed money or who are currently working on Carillion projects. It will undoubtedly mean impairments for those small businesses, but more pressing is the negative effect it will have upon cash flow, causing severe difficulties for many.
