Business Finance for Business People

As a business finance broker covering Shropshire, I deal with all types of commercial finance requirements for all types of businesses throughout the area. Many business finance brokers concentrate purely on investment property transactions but whatever your business type and whatever commercial finance you require we will be able to assist. We have already raised business finance for clients based in Shropshire, Telford, Shrewsbury and Whitchurch.
As commercial finance brokers our client base is vast and diverse and we have raised business finance for clients including publicans in Shropshire, aspiring bed and breakfast and guest house owners in Shrewsbury and Whitchurch and architects throughout Shropshire. We have also obtained property development finance for experienced and not so experienced property developers.

See how we can assist you with your business finance requirements by picking up the phone and speaking to us.

Prior to joining ASC I had over twenty five years’ experience in residential mortgage broking.

As a business finance broker in Shropshire I revel in the challenge of dealing with a diverse business clientele and enjoy overcoming the challenges that lenders put in our way when it comes to business finance.

I will take the time to speak to you at length and establish exactly what your business needs in terms of commercial finance.

I will then take away the hassle of form filling, stacks of paperwork and leave you to concentrate on what is important for any business owner – developing and growing your business.

We work closely with our clients from the initial enquiry through to loan offer. No call centres, just simple direct communication and a commitment to delivering the highest standards of customer service.

Contact me to find out how I can help you arrange the right finance for your business in Shropshire.

“The media is full of stories about the crisis the banking industry is facing and the much reduced trust people give when discussing their finances. I wish to tell you, we were soon not worried about much once John became involved and the added confidence his involvement gave us left us in a strong position to make decisions”
- Harold Grant

“We were recommended to John Wood, by a friend. He couldn't have recommended anyone better. We have never done this sort of deal before but it was all made very easy by Mr Wood and he got our needs sorted out quickly and efficiently. From the start we felt less stressed about the situation and it took a great deal off our mind. A Big Thank You to everyone concerned.”
- M.Nicholson

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.
