Stock Finance

Stock finance (also known as Purchase Finance) is a way of releasing capital against goods that you are holding in stock, work in progress or raw materials. The way you can raise money on this is where a lender purchases some stock from you at a discounted rate following a stock valuation by a third party (to assess its true value). Subsequently you provide the funder with regular (either weekly, monthly or quarterly) stock listings before agreeing on levels of funding for the future.

This type of funding can benefit your business in several ways - one of which is by releasing working capital which would otherwise be tied up in stock, your cash flow ultimately increases. You can then use the working capital for expansion or growth, management buy-outs or buy-ins, or to seek new business opportunities. This type of finance is particularly suited to International Trade Industries, Retail and Wholesale companies as they are often governed by seasonal stock requirements.

The providers of Stock Finance are many and varied. Our expertise and knowledge of this sector will help us to ascertain which one is right for you. Contact us today on 01892 552696 or email us on
