ASSET FINANCE

Asset Finance and Refinance - HP & Leasing.

Having access to the right equipment and machinery in order to deliver quality products and services to customers is vital to many businesses. Yet purchasing them outright can be difficult when you have to rely on your existing cash flow.
Asset finance solutions are designed specifically to help businesses overcome the challenges of raising the necessary capital to purchase new assets. This provides a more targeted option than securing an overdraft or bank loan, and allows companies to spread their payments over a longer timeframe to ease the cash flow impact.
It is also possible to release cash which is tied up in existing assets for a cash flow boost, depending on your requirements. We can identify the asset finance solutions and providers that are best suited to your specific requirements.

COMMERCIAL LOANS AND MORTGAGES

Unsecured and Secured Loans

We can help with either unsecured or secured loans.  Unsecured may often require a Personal Guarantee and tends to be medium term  (up to 5 years). A commercial property mortgage is a long-term loan which provides cash to help a business pay for a property or raise cash-flow. Typically, the mortgage company lends up to 70% of the property’s valuation in return for regular payments at a fixed or variable rate, keeping working capital free to help the business continue its growth. Rates and fees for commercial mortgages vary considerably between lenders, so it is important to identify the mortgage that best suits your business.

 So whether you’re looking to remortgage or purchase a new property, we can assist through our extensive panel of lenders.

REVOLVING CREDIT FACILITIES

Funding at Your Fingertips

A revolving credit facility (operates in a a similar way to the traditional overdraft) is a form of credit issued by a funder that provides the borrower with the ability to draw down or withdraw, repay, and withdraw again. A revolving loan is considered a flexible financing tool due to its repayment and re-borrowing accommodations.  Typically these facilities are secured on the assets of the business such as debtors, stock, assets and property or alternatively on the personal guarantees of Directors which may or may not be supported by their properties.  There is a wide range of solutions with differing interest rates and security requirements.  Let us help you source the right product.
