IIn this second edition of 2019, we cover late payments to SMEs and what the UK government has been doing to support the invoice finance market.

We cover the circular economy and what Europe is doing to make less waste in its manufacturing base.

We look at augmented reality in manufacturing and how it is being used as an asset to help the factory floor and how it could be used in the future.

We take a look at drawbacks of the continued Brexit uncertainty with a Hitachi Capital Business Finance report from SMEs.

Following on from that, there is insight from Europe on how the delayed Brexit deadline has affected industry in Germany.

We also take a look at recent asset finance deals; telematics in fleet; how the introduction of ULEZ affected business and a look at the IFRS16 introduction in the UK.
