Did ASC save Christmas?

We are certainly proud of all the deals we’ve completed for our clients, but recently we had the opportunity to discuss one with Alison Hunter, from ASC in Scotland, and she explains why it was one of the most unusual deals she has worked with, where arguably ASC “saved Christmas”.  

The clients were a couple living in Iceland who owned a Scottish limited company, which imported containers of Christmas items to supply various businesses in Scotland around Christmas time. 

The clients were struggling to receive the finance in advance to pay their Chinese suppliers to get the containers to the UK.  

Then they contacted ASC. 

Alison comments, “The case was very unusual for a number of different reasons: the location of the clients, the nature of the business, the lack of security in the deal but we did manage to find a small niche lender who provided funding for them. And we successfully managed to get the containers to Scotland before the Christmas period.” 

Contact ASC today to assist further; we don’t work for the banks; we work for our clients. We will make sure you get the deal that is right for you. If you would like to discuss the options available to you, please contact your local ASC office for more details.
