Vendor Finance

What is Vendor Finance?

Financing the purchase of vital business equipment can be a challenge for your customers and could stand in the way of them achieving their revenue goals. We can support you and your customers by financing their purchase through a range of flexible and affordable options.

How does it work?

Your customer chooses their equipment and completes our application form.

We provide a quote and, if accepted, all documentation is completed.

We pay the supplier invoice upfront and your customer receives their equipment.

Your customer spreads the cost of the equipment over an agreed term.

When the term is complete, the customer can hold onto the equipment or upgrade.

  • You get paid upfront rather than in instalments.
  • Flexible approach to asset financing with payments agreed to suit the customer.
  • Helps to increase your profit margins, as the need to discount the price is reduced.
