most common faqs

What kinds of documentation will I need to produce for a commercial finance application?

This will vary depending on each individual case. Your mortgage broker will provide you with a shopping list of required documents at the outset and as the case progresses. It is often preferable for us, with your consent, to have direct dialogue with your professional advisors such as your accountant and/or solicitor. By liaising directly with your advisors we can take some of the leg work off your desk.

What factors will affect the interest rate I pay for commercial finance?

Your mortgage broker will always aim to source the cheapest rate available across the entire market under your circumstances, whilst also considering other factors such as lenders appetite for certain deals and geographical areas, yours and your business’s credit history and deposit/equity funds available. This list is not exhaustive, however, and there are many more factors to be considered. Your broker will always explain the reasoning behind the lender chosen and an indication of where the pricing sits across the market.

My company is under 2 yrs old, is it likely to be eligible for commercial finance?

Lenders do like companies to be trading for as long a period as possible, but we have lenders who will look a case on very much an individual basis - so no, not necessarily.

Are low interest loans available to businesses?

It’s hard to quantify what a low interest rate loan would look like at any given time as prices can fluctuate, but a broad range of these types of financial products are available. Rest assured our task is to find the best and usually the cheapest option for our clients!
