Raising finance

Our strength lies in our experience and our excellent relationships with banks and other finance providers. Our strong relationships and assistance in preparing a robust and accurate business plan will help make your application for finance more successful. The recent economic downturn has resulted in an increasingly stringent lending criteria, meaning that only the most robust businesses are now able to access the finance they need to help their business grow.

As part of a multi-disciplined advisory firm, we also work closely with other in-house specialists and, in particular, with our tax team on tax planning and effective structuring for each transaction. Transactions tend to have complex tax implications, so this part of our service is extremely important.
