If I want to start a small business, what are my financial assistance options from the British government?
The British government is likely to have a number of financial assistance options that your small business can at least apply for. Grants are sometimes available to help you if you meet the conditions for them, and a number of loan programmes are commonly used to assist new small businesses.
