Thursday, 14 May 2009 14:36

A significant problem

Absence can be a serious drain on a business, with the cost of occupational sick pay, lost production or the need to bring in replacement staff potentially running into millions of pounds
a year in the UK’s largest organisations.
Long-term absences through sickness or the inability to attend work regularly and consistently because of ill-health are often the most difficult problems for employers to deal with.

Over the past 12-18 months many  businesses in Knutsford have had to suffer power loss often for several hours at a time and often at peak service times which have resulted in thousands of pounds in lost trading. I am sure that other businesses have suffered similarly at a very difficult time particularly during the present climate.

FPB and Accept Cards Ltd help firms save money on merchant services
The Forum of Private Business (FPB) is helping small businesses cut adrift by the providers of credit card merchant services or struggling with the cost of processing card payments.

The FPB has joined forces with Accept Cards Ltd (ACL) in order to reduce the expense of taking card payments and the hassle of seeking out alternative providers.
Many business owners are paying steep rates because they do not have the time or resources to shop around for a better deal. Some are not aware they can use the credit card merchant services provided by lenders other than their existing banks.
