SMEs struggling under the weight of paperwork

According to a new study by Nesta, the business innovation charity, the burden of financial administration and a lack of transparency in the market for financial products is stifling the growth of small and medium sized businesses (SMEs).

The new report found that 42 per cent of entrepreneurs say dealing with finances is the most stressful aspect of running a company, while 17 per cent said that the stress has made them unwell.

The vast majority of small business owners handle their banking and finance without professional help, with one in five spending more than eight hours a week managing their banking.
