Secured Loan

By using a commercial asset, such as property, equipment or land, as security against your loan, you could access a high value secured business loan. This form of lending is also known as asset-backed lending; the amount you can borrow, along with the interest rate and repayment terms, are favorable for businesses that own tangible company assets.

The Benefits of Secured Loan?

It is often cheaper to repay a secured business loan than an unsecured business loan as the repayments and interest rates are generally lower. Our lenders offer greater flexibility with their funding arrangements and can offer generous repayment terms of up to 10 years.

  • Larger loan amounts from £25,000 up to £2m+
  • Longer periods to repay up to 10 years
  • Lower interest rates and repayments
  • Works with poor credit history

Unsecured Loan

If your business doesn’t own many assets but needs funds quickly, an unsecured business loan offers you a quick and easy funding solution. Unsecured business loans are becoming an increasingly popular funding option amongst business owners due to their competitive rates, flexible terms and the speed at which funds can be made available.

If you own a merchant terminal and take card payments then this product may well be perfect for you.

Asset Finance

Asset Finance is funding secured against business assets, from equipment and machinery to vehicles. It is a way to release cash which is tied up in business assets, for you to use elsewhere.

Hire Purchase

Hire purchase enables you to secure ownership of the assets. 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 individual needs, generally involving a deposit followed by a series of monthly or quarterly instalments. Customers can choose between a fixed rate or base rate hire purchase.

Lease Finance

A leasing agreement gives a business full use of an asset for an agreed period of time at an agreed monthly or quarterly rental. The funder will purchase the required asset, claim any available capital allowances or writing down allowances and pass the full benefit on within the lease rentals.


Funders have different leasing plans, each designed to meet the requirements of specific circumstances.
Paying cash outright for capital assets can be a significant drain on your working capital, and waiting for cash from your receivables also restricts growth.

Invoice Finance

Invoice finance enables you to release the cash tied up in outstanding invoices, so you don’t have to wait weeks or months for payment. Invoice finance is an asset-backed funding solution for businesses that regularly invoice customers. It offers a fast, flexible and convenient way to manage cash flow and get paid quickly for completed work. Rather than waiting for customers to settle an invoice, a lender will advance you a percentage of the invoice amount, usually within 24 hours. The remaining balance is paid to you upon receipt of the customer’s payment.

The Benefits of Invoice Finance?

Invoice finance offers an incredibly fast and flexible way to manage your cash flow. You can typically expect to release up to 85% of the funds tied up in your invoices within 24 hours. You can choose the best type of invoice finance for your business; you can sell one or multiple invoices and decide whether you or your finance provider will manage your credit control.

  • Sell one or multiple invoices
  • Receive 90% of your sales invoice value immediately
  • No limits on invoice value
  • Receive the funds within 24 hours
  • Improves your cash flow
  • No dilution of equity
  • Discounting and factoring services available
  • No hassle of chasing payments
  • Confidential from your customers (if you choose)

Bridging Loan

Bridging Loans are no different to long-term mortgages in that they are secured by a first charge or the second charge against your property. Because they are secured, the same steps of valuation and preparation of a legal charge deed have to be taken as with a normal term mortgage.

However, bridging loans are designed to be arranged quickly, and to run for a 1-36 month duration. Interest is taken from the loan balance at the start of the term, with the option to pay back the balance at any time, usually with no exit penalties. As loan durations increase past 18 months most lenders look for the loan to be serviced with monthly interest payments. Because interest payments are already taken from the loan balance, there are usually no affordability checks.

Development Finance

Our Development Finance is available for commercial property for new and experienced investors from a large selection of Commercial Lenders and Hedge Funds, Banks and Family Offices. Finance can be arranged for up to 90% of the development costs.
Typically, a property development loan is arranged on an interest only basis and the term of the loan is between 4 – 36 months, though longer and shorter terms are possible. The term normally depends on whether the loan is for refurbishment or for a new build property. Two stage loans are normally involved in development finance, although they are not always required together. One stage is for the land or property purchase and the other is to fund the cost of the renovation or build costs.

The rate / margin offered by the lender will vary significantly depending on the case presented to them and whether the applicant is an experienced or new property investor/developer. All applications are assessed on a case to case basis. Rates can be based on a margin above the Bank of England Base rate or LIBOR rate, or the lender may provide the option of a fixed rate.

They are typically offered as an additional feature connected to a business bank account and allow companies to spend beyond their existing account balance.
