Business Finance for Business People

From my office based in Chelmsford as a business finance broker I am equipped and able to assist clients with their commercial and property finance requirements throughout Essex including Loughton, Epping, Colchester, Southend and Chelmsford.

I would consider myself a commercial finance broker who is completely “hands on”. Whenever I take on a client who is seeking business finance anywhere in Essex I will stay with the transaction from start until finish. I will liaise with lenders and solicitors on a daily basis and I will ensure that my clients obtain the business finance they require in the most effective and hassle-free way. My clients can continue to grow and develop their business without having to worry about the administration, form filling and general hurdles that lenders will so often put in their way.

For me the best thing about helping clients with their business finance in Essex is seeing them happy and enabling small business owners to realise their dream.

As a business finance broker based in Essex, I deal with a wide selection of clients from property developers, business owners, day nurseries, nursing home, hotel and guest house owner occupiers and property investors.

For 15 years I worked in the city for a major clearing bank where my role was in supporting business customers.  I will take the time to establish what finance is right for your business and approach the lenders to secure the business finance that works for you.

If you are a SME business owner in Essex who is looking for business finance, property development financer or a commercial mortgage feel free to pick up the phone and speak to me.

You will find I am extremely amiable and approachable finance broker with local knowledge and I can assure you I will do everything possible to find you the commercial finance that will help your business grow.

Away from the office, I have a young family which takes up all my time, spending most weekends standing at the side of a football pitch watching my son play football.  When not doing that, my Wife and I do enjoy good food and fine wine.

Business Finance I have assisted clients with already

  • We helped a successful Essex business who was currently renting their business premises obtain funding to buy the freehold.
  • Obtained finance to enable our clients to live their dream of running a guest house in Southend.
  • Finance for an amusement arcade owner to expand their portfolio.

“I would just like to thank you for giving such an excellent service in the way that you dealt with helping me to obtain my funding. From start to finish you have been superb in keeping me informed of what is happening, and more importantly you kept chasing people up to ensure that my case went through quickly. Also I must say that the people that you recommended to me, worked the same way so I am sure you must have many happy customers. As you know my brother who is a financial advisor recommended you and I can see why, out of all the people he knows, it was your name he put forward. The only area in which I feel you need extra training is putting the paper into your credit card machine. This was a disaster! If I ever require to do any refinancing in the future I will not look anywhere else.”
- G. Ingram (Romford)

“I should like to thank you for the swift resolution in this matter - puts the banks to shame!” - T. Palmer

ASC successfully raised finance for a group of property investors on the East Coast of Scotland to make their first acquisition.

Having successfully arranged finance for a client’s care home 5 years ago, they recently returned to ASC Finance, to secure a commercial loan of £985,000 to purchase and start - up a second care home.

We were able to refinance a commercial loan of over £300,000 for a client to repay a builder which he had used to carry out improvements to the commercial property.

We arranged a commercial loan of £400,000 for a long - established solicitors’ practice to consolidate their debts and provide additional working capital.

We raised £250,000 to help a wholesaler in Peterborough expand its operations.

ASC Finance arranged £10.5 million of development finance arranged for the purchase and construction of 11 townhouses.

We arranged a £300,000 commercial mortgage for a green-grocer in Cambridge to expand their business.

ASC arranged commercial finance of £276,000 for a car parts wholesaler to relocate and expand their business.

We assisted in the purchase of a large pub in a busy Warwickshire town. At a 60% LTV we got to completion with a High Street Bank in less than six weeks from the first enquiry.


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.
