Working Capital & Mortgages

Capital is the life blood of any business. As an engine needs oil, so a business needs capital. As different engines need different oils so different businesses need different capital to enable them to optimise their organisation and profitability.

Working Capital/Short term:
 

Medium term Capital:           

Long term Capital:    
Secured on short term assets such as debtors/stock.
 

Secured on medium term assets such as plant, trucks, machinery, vehicles.

Secured on property/land.

 

The secret is to have enough of the right capital, in the right proportions, at the right time. 

This is where our expertise comes into play. We can organise all the differing forms of capital to suit your business needs. If you are asset rich but cash poor, we can restructure your business finances to alleviate any capital imbalance problems you may have.

Sale & Lease back/HP: Medium Term

See our sections on Bus/Coach/Truck etc., If you have already purchased these assets but still need to raise working capital, you can have a Sale and Lease/Hire Purchase back facility. Restructure your medium term assets for short term capital. Leaving your bank facilities untouched and still available.

Unlock the cash tied up in your vehicles, equipment, plant and machinery. Sale and Lease/Hire back  enables a business to sell  assets already owned to a finance company. They, in return, will release most of the value in those assets back into the cash flow of your business.

You may want to raise money to:

 

  • Use as working capital (maybe due to seasonal spikes in cash flow).
  • Replace funds where a customer has caused bad debts.
  • Reduce your monthly outgoings.
  • Repay your Bank.
  • Purchase another Business (e.g a competitor), using the cash raised as part of the purchase.
  • Finance "owned" assets as part of the security in a larger transaction (e.g the purchase of a freehold property).
 

Commercial Mortgages: Long Term

There are three types of commercial mortgage:

1. Business mortgage (also known as owner-occupier mortgage)
If you are looking for a mortgage to purchase premises for your business you will need a business mortgage or owner-occupier mortgage. If you already own your business premises and are looking to refinance the property you will need a business remortgage (or owner-occupier remortgage).

2. Commercial investment mortgage
