How have we raised finance for businesses like yours? We have written some successful completed cases about our clients and their financial journeys.

A Bespoke Approach for a Bespoke Design Company

Our client was a bespoke interior decorating a design company based in Oxfordshire.

ASC in Oxfordshire was originally approached by them as they were looking for a facility to be able to repay a family loan as well as carry out a complete re-fit of their showroom.

In order for the showroom re-design to take place effectively, the client wished to extend the business showroom. This would be subject to planning consent.

Unfortunately for the client, when they applied to their existing bank for the loan, despite being able to show a very positive trading record, the bank was not willing to assist.

Fortunately, they approached ASC!

ASC were able to use their contacts and introduce them to an alternative lender. Although the lender was only able to give Indicative terms for the loan in January, the client was able to move forward with their application.

By March, the onset of Coronavirus lockdown meant that the loan companies’ service level was severely diminished. However, ASC pushed on for the client and was able to complete the deal by summer 2020.

The client was delighted and they have now been able to move forward with their plans for the showroom expansion/refurbishment and growing the business.
