As your sales ledger and turnover increases, the level of available funding can grow too. Professional Our arrangement with you remains completely confidential. You maintain your customer relationships, you retain control over your sales ledger and invoice issuing and payment is remitted into a trust account in your name. Case study During the recent economic downturn, a South Wales based road sweeping and planing company had just completed new premises when their former bank refused a commercial mortgage, leaving them with an overdraft and short-term cash flow problems.

We ll cover you for up to 90% of the value of a bad debt suffered. Case study Challenging economic conditions threatened the clients of a leading supplier and manufacturer to the construction industry based in the North East of England. This in turn raised fears of substantial losses and cash flow problems for the business. We provided debtor protection alongside the firm s invoice discounting facility. When one of the business s building clients was declared insolvent owing 200,000, the firm s working capital was secured. Their liquidity was safeguarded and they were able to pay their creditors on time. 10
