In many cases, we can help with your asset finance even if you have experienced trading difficulties in the past – provided the equipment or vehicles being financed offer suitable security, the lender can see a deposit and you can demonstrate a clear ability to repay. Guarantees and indemnities or other security may also be required, but if you are in any doubt as to whether you are eligible for asset finance, just contact us for more advice.
We are happy to consider applications from experienced business operators including sole traders, partnerships, limited liability partnerships and limited companies. Future Finance offers attractive pricing and will treat your application on its own merits, taking into account the strength of your business, your experience and plans for the future when determining the interest you are charged.
Each finance solution is tailored to your needs.
Once you have identified what Assets your business needs to purchase, we will normally ask you for the following information to find you a suitable Asset Finance facility:
• Set of last statutory accounts
• Management accounts and/or latest bank statements
• Background on the business and its directors
• Full details of the equipment being purchased and the supplier(s)
• Rationale for the Asset purchase (why is the business investing in new plant/machinery?)
Where the transaction is for a modest amount (typically under £10,000) or for a standard asset (e.g. a motor car or light commercial vehicle) the process is simpler and finance can be secured quickly via a telephone call (and with the provision of much less information). For larger loans and more complex transactions a full in depth proposal may be required, this often means a site visit by Future Finance & Leasing to see the business and its owners.
The banks have tightened up but they are still lending for Asset finance purchases. Future Finance have access to many of the leading high street lenders.
Many of our clients have a requirement to purchase plant and machinery throughout their trading year, particularly in the vehicle, construction and plant hire sectors.
