Cash Flow Finance

 We know maintaining cash flow is critical to the success of your business and that customers stretching the terms of payment is a frequent issue,   Factoring and invoice discounting can be an effective way to release cash tied up in their working capital.

  • Up to 90% of the invoice value paid to you on issue
  • Efficient on-line process with cash paid into your account in 24 hours or less
  • Credit insurance (if required) to give you peace of mind in case of non-payment of an invoice by your customers
  • Can be used in conjunction with other finance facilities
  • Quick set up – typically operational within 10-15 working days

We work with all the major UK factors and will provide the most appropriate scheme to suit your business profile – including Confidential Factoring. Please see Cash Flow financing FAQs for more details  Our service is fee free so please get in touch if you would like a review of your current finance or if you are looking for a new facility.

Our expert advice can help you navigate this process – helping you build your business plan and presenting it to lenders on your behalf. Please see Business Mortgage FAQs for more details.

Management Buy-Out/Buy-Ins

This is a specialised area of finance where lenders want to understand not only the business and its finances, but also the management team – their background, expertise and ambitious.

Our team’s experience of working with some of the biggest names in the buy-out industry means we are exceptionally well placed to work with you at any stage in the bidding process to assess your options and ensure the relevant financing of up to £20 million is in place to back your bid.

We’ll take the time to work with you to understand the business, your backgrounds, your objectives for the business and likely exit scenarios if appropriate. We will then work with you to develop the right financing solution and structure – taking it right through to completion.

We can also work with you to optimise the post-acquisition financial position – considering whether there is cash that can be released from assets on balance sheets or within the working capital.
