What is commercial finance?

Commercial finance covers a broad spectrum of lending areas including:

  • Owner occupied/trading businesses looking to purchase or refinance their own premises.
  • Commercial investment loans covering properties that are being purchased for rental return and capital gain.
  • Residential investment loans covering properties that are being purchased for rental return and capital gain.

 

Typical client scenarios.

Your client:

  • Is classed as an ‘unusual borrower’, such as Ltd companies, LLPs, pension funds, charities and trusts.
  • Is renting their business premises and the monthly mortgage payment works out to be less than the rent.
  • Wishes to borrow on an interest-only basis.
  • Is struggling to finance their buy-to-let portfolio or block of apartments with traditional buy-to-let lenders.

  • Multiple units/apartment blocks (under one title).

  • Single offices/office blocks.
  • Forecourts, petrol stations and car washes.
  • Public houses, restaurants, hotels and guest houses.
  • Care/nursing homes, child day care nurseries.
  • Holiday and caravan parks.

Non-property commercial lending solutions.

Asset finance.

Increasingly used by individuals and businesses to finance things such as plant, equipment, machinery, vehicles, aircraft and marine vessels. It can also be used for leasing and hire purchase agreements relating to the same assets.

Invoice finance.

A cash flow finance based on prepayment against invoices, which unlocks the value tied up in the company’s debtor book. For many businesses this can be their largest asset and as the business grows, so can the invoice finance facility, avoiding cash flow bottlenecks.

Unsecured business loans.

These allow businesses to expand and can be used for a variety of reasons. The funding is available from a wide array of specialist lenders, allowing many business types and sectors to be considered. It’s also quick and easy to arrange, particularly in comparison to commercial mortgages.
