Starting and running a business means relying on loans and credit from the bank.
Whatever your big idea and grand plans, few firms have enough savings in reserve to get through.
Join us for a live web TV show with Martin Morrin, managing director of RBS invoice finance, and Patrick Fennelly, finance manager of small business Moving Venue Catering, how surviving and thriving through the recession.
They will be answering your questions and looking at ways to manage the finances of a small business in the good times and the bad.
Submit your questions below on how to get started in business and keep it running as banks seem more cautious about lending.
The show will be live at 12:00 BST on May 7th or catch the repeat later on in the day.
