Commercial and Business Finance in Scotland

A business loan isn’t like a normal loan. It comes with its own unique set of considerations. At ASC, we understand these considerations and help clients all over the Borders tailor applications for business finance, commercial finance and property finance to meet them.

About Alison

An experienced business finance broker, and qualified Chartered Accountant,  I assist SME owners get access to the  commercial, business and property finance markets in Scotland. If you’re a small business owner who is on the lookout for a commercial mortgage, any type of property investment finance or business re-financing, then I can assist you.

My team and I work across Scotland from our three bases; Edinburgh, Perth and Glasgow. We take the time to understand our clients and their requirements, meeting face-to-face where possible. No call centres, just simple direct communication and a commitment to delivering the highest standards of customer service.

We work with clients across sectors, but we have a notable specialty in the leisure sector; where we’ve helped B&Bs, hotels and caravan parks obtain commercial finance and arranged refinancing for restaurants and cafes across Scotland.

We’ve helped property developers get the right finance for single new-build properties, for refurbishments and commercial conversions, and property investment finance for large, multi-unit builds.

I am terribly fortunate to be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Scotland, and outside of ASC you’ll find me on the golf course, or running, biking, and hiking.
