Types Of Commercial Funding

There are several different types of commercial funding, each one has its own specifications, so it’s important for companies to choose one which works best for them. Commercial loans are more suited to large organisations.

The different types of commercial funding vary significantly. They are mainly split by whether or not they require security or collateral.

Commercial Loans

When it comes to commercial funding, a commercial loan is usually the simplest solution for companies. It works like most loans with a company making regular repayments of an agreed amount for a specified period of time. Interest rates and additional fees will also be agreed on.

Commercial loans are broken down into Secure and Insecure:

Secured Loans

  • Usually cheaper as the lender is taking a lower risk
  • Use company assets as security

Unsecured Loans

  • Generally more expensive
  • Ideal for companies which don’t have assets to use as security.

ASSET REFINANCE SOLUTIONS

Asset Refinancing Solutions from Richmond Asset Finance.

Asset Refinancing is based on using a company’s existing assets as a low-cost way to quickly release cash for the business to support growth or cashflow. 

Most importantly, companies from all sizes can benefit from this type of financing solution, whether they are looking to expand, set up new projects or just need to raise funds quickly.

What is Asset Refinancing?

As one of the simplest financial solutions, asset refinancing is an arrangement which uses a company’s existing assets to raise cash. Also, it is a secured form of lending that uses an existing company asset as security against the loan.

The asset does not need to be owned outright as refinancing solutions can also be used on equity tied up in the company property. So, depending on a company’s requirements, they can refinance single or multiple assets. Refinancing multiple assets is also known as debt consolidation. 

Additionally, funding providers can generally offer refinancing arrangements from £5,000 to £5million, depending on the value of the asset(s). Furthermore, terms are typically available from 12 months to five years, though this is dependent on the individual asset.

What sorts of asset finance are there?

There are several types of asset finance and a few minor variations. Each has its uses, benefits and disadvantages but all broadly follow the principles of asset finance given above. A general overview of what’s available follows:

Hire purchase

This is a very similar model to hire purchase for individuals. The hire purchase provider retains ownership of the asset to be leased over the term of the agreement and leases it to the business for agreed regular fixed payments. Businesses may make a larger initial payment followed by smaller payments on an agreed schedule. At the end of the agreed period, the business can choose to buy ownership of the item outright with a further payment.

Finance lease (or capital lease)

This differs from some other asset finance in that the business is only ever renting the assets concerned. Again, payment is made with regular payments to an agreed schedule. This normally lasts until the finance provider has recouped the purchase value of the asset. In some instances, the finance company may allow the business to share in a percentage of the sale value of an item once it has been sold. The business does not have the option to purchase the asset outright.

Tax-wise, it may be possible for a business to offset the rental payments against their profits. However, this is not possible with long funding leases. The finance company retains the right to any capital allowances, but the business can reclaim VAT.

Asset refinancing

There are basically two forms of asset refinancing: the first is simply using a company’s assets (physical or otherwise) as security against a loan.

The second – more properly called asset-based lending – is where a business sells an asset to asset finance provider for an agreed lump sum. The business then leases back the asset sold from the finance provider – thus repaying the lump sum paid.

Asset refinancing differs from a simple secured loan in that a business can use physical assets they may only partially own as collateral, but only up to the level of equity they have in that item.

Contract hire

This form of asset financing relates to vehicles only. A business wishing to expand its fleet will approach a contract hire provider who will source the vehicle(s) required. The business pays a regular amount over the agreed leasing period.

Maintenance and servicing costs remain the responsibility of the provider, rather than the business. For larger companies with multiple vehicles fleet management services may also be included in the base contract hire costs.

Contract hire (also sometimes referred to as vehicle asset finance) carries the benefit of relieving a business of the time and budget-consuming tasks that accompany normal vehicle ownership. The provider is responsible for finding and buying a new vehicle, as well as all maintenance and servicing costs. At the end of the leasing period, the provider also assumes responsibility for the disposal of the vehicle.

What is asset finance?

Asset Finance very often associated with the purchase of equipment or agricultural equipment for a business. This type of finance is used by organisations who have the need or the opportunity to grow their business but perhaps may not have the funds readily to hand or prefer to spread the cost over a longer term.

In other cases, a business can use assets they own – such as plant, machinery or vehicles – as security against a loan from an asset finance provider.

Where a business requires the purchase of a new physical asset the finance company will pay for the equipment, plant, vehicle or machinery and the client will pay a regular sum to the provider.

The item may eventually become the property of the business over time, depending on the sort of asset finance involved.

What is an asset?

An asset is an object or resource that has a value and can be converted into cash. Assets can be owned by a company, government or individual and can help these organisations to deliver their purpose or generate an income. 

Who is asset financing a good idea for?

Asset financing is suitable for a wide range of businesses and organisations, including sole traders and small to medium-sized enterprises, as well as larger companies and corporations. In the past, this tended to be an avenue only used by bigger businesses, but with the minimum levels of finance available being lowered, this has now become a more widespread option for all kinds of businesses seeking asset-based finance.

However, it should be noted that some providers tend to specialise in certain company types, such as limited companies, public limited companies (PLCs) or similar.

Plant & Machinery Financing Solutions from Richmond Asset Finance

The investment in effective agricultural plant machinery is essential for farmers and and contractors within the construction industry, in order to raise working capital and boost growth.

What industries/sectors use equipment loans?

How do I get an equipment loan?

One of the advantages of equipment loans with Richmond Asset Finance is that, if you’re eligible, they are quick to get.

This is great news for businesses that can’t wait weeks or months to purchase, replace or repair critical equipment. You can use Richmond Asset Finance to find a suitable equipment loan. 

What are the benefits of equipment finance?

There are many reasons you might choose equipment finance rather than paying up front out of your business’s coffers. Here are four of the best:

Tax efficiency

Some types of equipment finance like equipment leasing and sale and leaseback are more tax efficient than buying outright. That’s because when you lease an item it’s a monthly expense rather than an asset sitting on your balance sheet.

Easy to budget and manage

Equipment finance in most of its forms gives you predictable payments so you can spread the cost over time. That means that managing cashflow is that little bit simpler, and you can focus on running the business.

Flexibility and scalability

If you finance one piece of equipment and your business starts growing, you can get more items quickly without a large outlay. Whether you’re ramping up production using a new piece of state-of-the-art kit, or getting hold of extra vehicles for expanding logistics, equipment finance is a great way to grow your business.

Access to other lines of credit

One of the often forgotten but important reasons to finance equipment rather than buy it outright is access to other lines of credit. For similar reasons as tax efficiency, equipment finance is usually a predictable monthly expense, which means you can get another type of business finance alongside it. This is a huge advantage for some businesses — you could get the equipment you need, and take out a business loan for marketing, for example.

What is the importance of finance in agriculture?

Farmers have been getting squeezed over the years often experiencing lower margins on their produce.

Whereas, the cost of operating a farm requires cash injections for a variety of reasons, such as,  allowing farmers to replace machinery, invest in new efficient energy power, build new stores, purchase cattle etc.

For most farmers, accessing finance through traditional lenders such as banks is becoming more difficult and time consuming.

Using a specialist agriculture finance broker such as Richmond Asset Finance, can offer farmers preferential rates and flexible arrangements – and often much quicker.
