Financing your business

We offer an alternative approach to traditional finance that responds to your changing needs by growing in line with your business. Whether you need to manage cash flow, grow your operation or facilitate a strategic event such as a merger or management buy-out, don’t let a lack of finance hold you back.

What types of businesses use invoice finance?

A diverse range of sectors from manufacturing and engineering through to recruitment and healthcare successfully use our invoice finance solutions.

It is particularly suitable for businesses struggling with clients’ 30 day+ payment terms as you are able to access your cash as soon as the invoice is raised, rather than waiting until the following month or longer.

Achieving your business goals

We provide funding to our clients for a whole host of different reasons, from helping them to keep their operation moving to facilitating growth or simply future-proofing their business. 

We believe that it is important to not only recognise the key motivations for your funding requirements, but also to take the time to really understand your business so that we can tailor a solution that will help you achieve your business goals both now and in the future.
