  1. It’s not so much the change in the base rate that appears to be having the most impact, it’s the across-the-board price increases on service charges and arrangement fees for new deals that the industry seems to be applying – “Supply and demand” rules I guess.

  2. It does appear to be the same High Street bank owned factoring company that lead the downward spiral of rates that is first in the queue to raise them again.
