You are on Business
Funding comes in all shapes and sizes. Which option is best for your business will depend on many things: the reason for seeking finance, your trade and working capital cycle, your risk profile, your asset base and the term and amount you require.
We can provide you with a range of solutions that meet your needs.
Term loans, overdrafts and revolving credit – for a straightforward solution with certainty and flexibility built in, a term loan allows you to access capital for growth. A revolving credit facility offers an overall limit within which your business can access funds as and when required. And, for short-term finance, an overdraft helps you keep pace with fluctuating financial demands.

Hire Purchase and Leasing - is a method to secure funding against asset based requirements. It enables you to secure ownership of the assets upon full repayment of the amount lent. The cost of an asset can be spread over its useful working life and paid for out of the revenue it earns. Payment patterns can be tailored to suit your needs. Generally involving payment of a deposit and the VAT amount, followed by a series of monthly (or quarterly) instalments.

All lending is subject to a satisfactory credit assessment and we will need your permission to carry out a credit check on you and your business. You should not apply for an amount that you cannot comfortably afford to repay now and in the future to avoid the possibility of legal action.
