Business Finance for Business People

I have been with ASC Finance for Business for 20 years and have built a thorough understanding of the market place for business finance. As a business finance broker based in Bristol I assist with business finance in all areas including Bath, Yeovil, Taunton and all areas across Somerset. I can cut through the nonsense to get you the commercial finance you deserve. I still come across situations which are new and different, but the experience I have had helps me in most situations and I can always call on the experience of the rest of the ASC finance broker network if required.

As a Bristol based commercial finance broker, I have found that clients come in all shapes and sizes. Some are making their first steps into running their own businesses and others are seasoned entrepreneurs who appreciate the expertise we have to get them the right business finance for their next step forward. We will take the time to understand your needs and get the commercial finance that is right for you.

Being successful as an ASC business finance broker is about building relationships with all the various players in the market.

As an SME owner you need to be confident that your commercial finance broker has access to and the business finance knowledge to deal with lenders in the market place.

Like any small business I need to be financially successful, but just as important for me is the satisfaction of knowing there are many businesses out there who are more successful due to our efforts.

When clients return to us for the second third or fourth time we know they’ve understood just what a good commercial finance broker can add to process leaving you to focus and concentrate on growing and developing your business.

Before ASC I working in a building society and at a well-known clothing manufacturer which has given me a real understanding of how the corporate world works and how it is so different from small business. I have an MBA from what is now Cranfield University.

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.

With many years experience in the business, Carol Laskey recently set up her own beauty company. She provides a “nursing led” service offering a much higher level of customer care than is the norm in the industry.

She identified an opportunity to further upgrade her service and new treatments to her product range. This required financing a new machine but she had little cash to put down and while she was sure it would pay for itself very quickly, she had no accounts to show as she had not long been trading. As a member of the Federation of Small Businesses, she was advised to contact ASC Finance for Business to see what they could do.

Once Carol met with ASC Regional Director Ian Morgan, she was confident that her application for finance would be handled speedily and professionally. Using the ASC lender panel, Ian soon identified a source who could provide a lease purchase option for the equipment with payments spread over 5 years. Carol was delighted. The deposit was only £100, after which, payments could be financed from her cash flow. With the equipment now delivered and set up Carol is busy letting people in the Swindon area know about her new services.
