One of the most challenging aspects when it comes to raising commercial finance, is knowing which lenders have the right appetite for that particular deal. Having been raising business finance in London for many years, we know which banks have the appetite for investment properties, property developments, business purchases, or working capital finance.

You might know the banks that don’t lend, we know the banks that do!

So whatever industry you are in, from retail units, to property developers and pubs and restaurants to name a few, we have access to the key decision makers at the various lenders who can successfully provide the right finance for you.

As business finance brokers we will take the time to listen to you and to understand your business so we can approach the appropriate lenders on your behalf.

To put it simply We take the hassle out of arranging finance for your business, so that you can concentrate on what is most important to you: to successfully develop and run your business.

“Thanks Giles for all your help in getting us the finance in place for our development. It wouldn’t have been possible without your assistance”

“We were unable to get finance to buy our off-license from our bank, and didn’t know which way to go next. Fortunately, our accountant put us in touch with Giles at ASC Finance for Business, London, who knew a lender who was able to help us to buy the shop”

“Straight-forward, and no-nonsense. I’ll come straight back to Giles for any future commercial finance I may need”

Our clients owned a substantial portfolio of residential investment properties through a limited company. They had been with their bank for the last ten years, and had a strong relationship with them. However, once their ten year interest only loan came up for renewal, they were in for quite a shock. Their bank were only prepared to offer terms which were completely unacceptable to our clients – put quite simply, they wanted to be repaid.

Fortunately, our clients were put in touch with ASC Finance for Business. Using their strong relationships with a variety of different lenders, ASC were able to scan the market and approach a range of different lenders, in order to determine which lenders had the appetite to finance to deal, on terms which suited the client.

Not only were ASC able to refinance the £1,000,000 which our clients needed to repay, but they were also able to raise a further £600,000 for our client to purchase future properties to grow their portfolio.

Jon and Debbie Buckley had been running their IT business in London for over 10 years and fancied a change of scenery. So they were delighted when they found a nine-acre commercial site in West Wales, which consisted of a detached farm house, and several listed out buildings, barns and a cottage. They saw it as the ideal opportunity to move to the Welsh countryside and run the premises as holiday lettings.

The only outstanding hurdle was arranging the finances, and luckily they were referred to ASC Finance for Business. Using their experience and knowledge of lenders in this sector, ASC were able to arrange over £400,000 for them to complete the purchase. And after getting settled into the property, the business is beginning to take off!

“It's taken us a while to get settled in but we are getting there and our first paying guests arrived last weekend.”


Our client Paul Hughes was introduced to ASC by his mortgage broker. Our client had obtained planning permission to construct 14 apartments, ranging from one to three bedrooms, on an unencumbered development site.

ASC approached various development lenders and successfully found a lender to offer Paul the required development finance to commence works on the project. The project has successfully been completed.

Another success story for ASC.
