Licensees participating in the program are also permitted to use the services of a finder as defined in Section 22371 of the Financial Code.

Business – BBC News

New business owners in Guernsey have explained how the coronavirus pandemic pushed them to launch their ideas.

Natalie Robins was struggling to find a job before she decided to set up Les Frens bakery from her home in St Martin.

She offers baked goods on a trolley from her driveway after managing to order all of her equipment online.

“One morning I had five people queuing in the drive at quarter to eight, and I don’t actually put everything out until eight,” she said.

“I think my record was 55 minutes for sausage rolls and an hour and 10 minutes for 98 cupcakes and about 70 sausage rolls.”

She added: “I’m absolutely loving it, I can work from home, I get a real buzz from putting the items on the trolley and people chatting in the driveway. It’s a real community spirit here in St Martin’s.”

Business Functions Library for Excel


Find Us on Facebook (opens a new tab)

Business Functions is a function library for Microsoft Excel for Windows desktop that’s been around since 2002.

We think it makes business plans, budgets, structured financings and cashflows more powerful and manageable. We found that using standard functions makes models:

  • more adaptable, because a single function call can invoke a large variety of different kinds of behaviour.
  • more accurate, because, amongst other things, over the years we’ve built in quite a sophisticated date/time system that models time periods very accurately.
  • faster to build, because you can build from an existing palette of standard algorithms, rather than reinventing the wheel every time. Its more of a building block approach.
  • quick to run, because of the fast language the functions are written in (C++).
  • probably less error prone, because of the standard and tested behaviour of the functions. Be aware, that it doesn’t eliminate the cause of
