UK Lease Line is a new division of UK Carline Vehicle Leasing and is a consultative and solutions driven addition to the services offered by UK Carline. Specialising in all aspects of finance other than contract hire we offer a wide range of funding solutions including some bespoke services not normally available. Below are some of the products and solutions we offer.
Whether clients are looking to purchase equipment, IT systems, plant or machinery to improve and grow their business or a complete re-fit we are here to help. From a simple single purchase to a complex and structured buying program, we offer competitive, bespoke finance solutions to suit all businesses regardless of size or status. We pride ourselves on sourcing the best available solution to our client’s requirements and tailoring that solution to ensure the best possible outcome for our clients. We have wide selection of funding partners who specialise in all aspects of finance; including re-finance which can be a cost-effective way to raise cash against qualifying assets that have already been purchased. Whatever the equipment and whatever funding solutions is required, we are here to help and assist our clients in their business development and growth.
Are you sat on customer invoices that are not being paid on time? This can cause major cashflow issues. We offer confidential invoice discounting to allow the release of cash tied up in these invoices. This product set has evolved over time to become a valuable tool for all businesses. We can now offer selective invoice discounting where a business can discount a single invoice or use the facility with a single customer. A company can now discount part of their debtor ledger for a fixed period of time without the need to enter into a long-term contract. The costs involved are competitive and when structured correctly can vastly improve cashflow and reduce debtor days. We are happy to look at companies that have been in distress in the past, new start businesses and phoenix companies. If there is a requirement for this product, we will provide the best solution.
Trade Finance is a facility whereby a trade finance provider purchases goods on behalf of a client and bridges the gap between a client paying the supplier or manufacturer for the goods and receiving payment from their customer for those goods. This finance solution is available for both domestic and imported goods. Major benefits in using this facility is that this removes any undue stress on a company’s cashflow and due to a supplier or manufacturer being paid by the trade finance provider, as an order is placed this should support further discounts being negotiated given the improved payment terms. This product is generally coupled with invoice discounting facility to offer even better cashflow management. Seasonal purchasing and large one-off purchases can also benefit by using a trade finance facility.
A specially developed product for sub-contractors that are reliant on major contractors for payment of invoices. Delays in this process can cause major issues for these companies. This can hold up payment of workers and the ability to pay for materials to carry out their parts of a contract. Our construction finance solution allows up to 80% of the invoice value to be released on application for payment, prior to certification, the balance being payable on certification. This is a very simple, transparent product that relieves the pressure felt by many small sub-contractors and makes cash flow management a whole lot easier.
We have specialist funders who offer solutions to fund VAT & tax payments. This product can be extremely useful for those unexpected bills that can appear without warning. R&D credits can also be forward funded. Again, these are excellent cash flow solutions available to our clients.
We have a comprehensive panel of funders in this sector. We cover all aspects of property finance. Commercial, domestic, development finance and bridging finance. We look at each opportunity on its own merits and match the funder to the individual requirements of the client. We will negotiate on the clients behalf to ensure the best possible deal is achieved. We understand that this type of funding is often crucial to a developments success and will respond accordingly.
Often a commercially sound business just needs a cash injection. This can be to overcome a short-term issue or to allow a business to expand and develop new products or markets. We understand that the clients bank may be reticent to become involved and will always take a conservative view. We have a number of niche funders who will step up to this type of request. Any additional security that may be required can often be structured using several finance-based products.
Whatever the requirement we are here to help, assist and advise. Often an informal chat or brief meeting over a coffee can be the most effective way of exploring what a client is looking to achieve and matching those expectations to our funding solutions.
