Workplace Pensions

Under the Pensions Act 2008, every employer in the UK must put certain staff into a workplace pension scheme and contribute towards it. This is called 'automatic enrolment'. If you employ at least one person you are an employer and you have certain legal duties.


A commercial mortgage is a loan secured on any property which is not your residence. There are a variety of different commercial mortgages and the assessment and pricing for each type will vary according to the risk posed by the venture. Please speak to one of your experts who can assist you in this area


A business loan is generally unsecured up to £25,000, but lenders will ask for some security for loans exceeding this value based upon the risk value. That said, due to the legal and administrative costs of taking security against a commercial property, many lenders will impose minimums on the amount they’re willing to approve in these situations.

Asset Finance

Asset finance (leasing and hire purchase) gives firms access to equipment which might otherwise be out of reach due to lack of cash flow. It usually involves paying a regular charge for use of the asset over an agreed period of time, therefore avoiding the full cost of buying outright.

Invoice Finance

Invoice financing is a way for businesses to borrow money against the amounts due from customers. Invoice financing helps businesses improve cash flow, pay employees and suppliers, and reinvest in operations and growth earlier than they could if they had to wait until their customers paid their balances in full.

Bridging Finance

If you are looking for a short-term finance option when purchasing property or land, a bridging loan can be useful. This option helps to ‘bridge the gap’ if you want to buy a new home before selling your old one and do not have the funds.

Trade Finance

Trade Finance is the provision of dedicated funding in support of the movement of physical goods being traded along a supply chain. Providing the exporter with receivables or payment whilst the importer might be extended credit to fulfil the trade order.

Grant Funding

A grant is a sum of money awarded to your business from the government that doesn’t need to be repaid. For investments, regional grants are available for capital investment and job creation, and gaining funding can depend on where your business is based.
