New loan secured to pay suppliers on time
Hilton-Baird Financial Solutions has helped a business to secure a £20,000 loan so they could pay suppliers ahead of getting paid by their customers.
In a complex case given the international nature of the business and location of its customers, our team utilised their in-depth knowledge of UK lenders and their varying appetites to introduce suitable options that met our client’s requirements.
The result was a £20,000 loan being secured, enabling our client to pay their suppliers on time and win two new and larger orders.
The business is an importer and exporter of parts used in the oil and gas sector.
The nature of international trade and the duration of the shipment being in transit means credit terms can become stretched and create cash flow challenges.
Trade finance facilities are usually a great way to overcome these situations. However, because 100% of this business’s sales were overseas and to high risk countries, such as Libya and Nigeria, the challenges were substantial, so it was difficult for our client to secure the necessary external funding – until they found us.
In fact, prior to contacting Hilton-Baird they had already made multiple funding applications, all of which were rejected, so they’d lost valuable time.
With the clock ticking, our team – who are experienced in working with international businesses – introduced equally experienced lenders who were willing and able to provide the desired level of funding.
Armed with their £20,000 loan, which was in place just eight days after initial contact with us, our client was able to settle their outstanding debt and secure further substantial orders as a result.
