Hire Purchase funding for growing service business

image

While lockdowns and Covid may seem a distant memory, it has taken time for businesses to bounce back.  That was certainly case for our returning  client who  repaired and maintained lifts. With the closure of offices during Covid and people working from home, demand for their services sharply fell. 

Term loan for new dental surgery

image
With a perceived shortage of dentists across the UK it was great to be able to assist a new start practice.  The business owners had many years experience in the sector but were setting up a new 'Squat' dental practice. In essence this is starting up a site from scratch rather than taking over an existing business.

Ticket Machines funded via Hire Purchase Facility

If you run a successful bus & coach business you need to keep on top of the latest technology; whether that's electric buses or the latest ticket machines.  It was the latter we were approached to fund, with machines being replaced in 6 buses. With everything seeming to go contactless, long gone are the days of buying a ticket with cash from a conductor!

Hire Purchase facility for McLaren 720 financed via a Limited Company

A company director based north of the border had his heart set on buying a used McLaren.  But rather than buying it in his personal name, he wanted to finance it via his limited company. We can finance cars in either personal or company names, but we would always recommend speaking with your accountant or financial advisor first to determine the best route. 

Merchant Cash Advance for Online Retailer

If you are running a retail business whether on the high street or online you will undoubtedly have a need for new stock.  Buying new stock often has an impact on cashflow, especially as it can take a number of months for the new stock to sell and profits to be realised.
