Aldermore Business Finance
Convert the value of unpaid invoices into cash flow for your business. You can access up to 90% of the value of your outstanding invoices. Start by sending your unpaid invoices to Aldermore, who will release the cash to you. You can then chase the invoices yourself (invoice discounting) or Aldermore will do it for you (invoice factoring). The customer pays Aldermore and then they transfer the remaining 10% of the balance to your business.
This includes hire purchase and lease finance. You can spread the cost of assets and equipment with Aldermore instead of paying for expensive items in one go. Funding is available for a wide range of assets, including manufacturing equipment, energy, and IT resources.
Business mortgages are available for commercial enterprises and buy-to-let from £50,000 to £25 million. A range of variable and 3, 5 or 7 year fixed rates are available, as well as lending up to 75% loan-to-value. Mortgages are available for offices, warehouses, industrial, retail, buy-to-let homes, and more.
Property development finance is also available, from £1 million to £25 million.
