Cash Flow Finance
Cash Flow is the lifeblood of any business and we can help maximize your available working capital either by use of a single product or a blend of a number of facilities.
Asset refinance or an unsecured loan may be enough to give a significant boost of cash.
Debtor Finance enables income to be released that is tied up in unpaid invoices, by providing an immediate facility of up to 90% of invoice value with the balance being received once the debtor pays. This facility can be provided against either individual invoices or the complete sales ledger.
Stock finance facilities are available either as a standalone facility, but often as part of a total debtor finance package.
Trade finance gives you the working capital to fund confirmed orders.
Short term cash flow loans can help with the sudden unexpected bill, funding refurbishments or fast moving stock e.g. retail and catering.
Commercial mortgages are available for all property types.
Lending reluctance from banks and building societies has created a short term finance market for bridging loans. Bridging loans have the advantage of being quick and can be a stop gap until a formal long term mortgage is put in place.
Development loans are available for both commercial and residential developments
Planning gain loans are also available.
We are able to fund both new and used equipment. Virtually, everything that a business needs can be financed, whether it be vehicles, production equipment, IT solutions or infrastructure.
We have a complete portfolio of products that includes, hire purchase, finance lease and operating lease - this enables the most appropriate facility to be used taking in to account capital allowance, taxation and cash flow issues.
