Surprisingly fast for most types of loans.

Midterm loans 1 to 5 years we usually get an approval same day or within 3 days depending on the circumstances.
Secured loans, take about 24 hours, but that is subject to a Valuation and payment within a week of valuation.
Property development loans.
Are very easy for a specialist or full of stress and disappointment for others. I have been involved in business finance for most of my working life and I use a specialist, the problem with the one I use is it appears so easy and quick. It’s a bit like Roger Federer hitting a tennis ball it appears so easy until you try doing the same.

Nowadays, surprisingly little. For most types of finance, your last 3 months bank statements and last set of accounts is all that is necessary.
There is a very rough rule of thumb guide, between 10 and 25% of your annual turnover, dependent on credit rating.
One of the biggest finance companies said, 70% of businesses that apply direct are turned down whereas 70% that go through a broker are accepted.
If you have been turned down, don’t feel bad, you are in the majority. Finding business finance is not your day job, how can you possibly know which is the best finance company for your request?
How would you know what the underwriter is looking to see in the filling out of the application form?
Many types of finance are available, with your book debts taken as security.
Book debt finance has changed as much as the mobile phone.
You now can borrow on 1 invoice or a 100 it is your choice, you collect in the debt as normal, and can use this facility as little or as much as you wish to, there are no charges or commitments, just take finance when you want to.
We also have a finance company that will do a fixed term loan without a personal guarantee.
“70% of businesses that apply direct for finance are turned down”
Compare that to:
“70% that are put forward by brokers are accepted”
Finance Companies pay brokers to introduce suitable businesses to them. Brokers like me save them time and a considerable amount of money on employing manpower to process unsuitable applications. After all, why would a busy Company Director want to waste their time on fruitless applications?
The average broker acceptance rate is 70%, but a good broker’s will be even higher. Mine is 84% - let me leverage my experience into success for your business.
A finance broker should be able to take you to a finance company that is a good fit for you and your turnover, credit rating, industry sector and purpose of loan.
They will also to be able to help you present your case and explain any relevant issues that could cause the proposal to be turned down in the underwriting stage.
