Our Products

Asset Finance

ISC Future Finance | Asset Finance

Asset finance Hire Purchase and Leasing

Hire purchase and leasing offers UK businesses flexible solutions for acquiring essential assets.

For hire purchase, a business pays a deposit and then makes regular instalments to purchase the asset over an agreed-upon period. Once the final payment is made, ownership transfers to the business. This method preserves working capital and allows immediate use of the asset.

Leasing involves renting an asset for an agreed term, providing businesses access without ownership responsibilities. It offers flexibility to upgrade equipment regularly. Both options provide tax benefits and can be tailored to your specific business needs.

Asset Refinance

Asset refinance allows a business to release the cash held within their existing owned assets as collateral to secure a loan or unlock capital.

A lender will value the business’s assets, such as machinery, vehicles, or equipment and they can then be used as collateral for the funding. Your business will then receive a loan equivalent to a percentage of the asset’s current value. This injected capital can be used for a number of purposes, including expansion, working capital, or debt consolidation. The key benefit lies in leveraging the untapped equity in assets, which enables businesses to access funds without selling valuable equipment outright. Asset refinance offers flexibility, preserves cash flow, and allows businesses to maximise the utility of their assets while strategically managing their financial resources.

Property Finance

ISC Future Finance | Property Finance

Are you looking to purchase a new commercial property? Or are you looking to expand your business and need to extend your current business premises? ISC can help you source commercial mortgage, bridging finance and property development funding.

Commercial Mortgages

Commercial mortgages are typically used by businesses that need to acquire property or are looking to release equity from their existing property.

A commercial mortgage allows businesses to access larger amounts of capital and achieve longer repayment terms, often up to 25 years. ISC has access to wide range of commercial mortgage lenders and we have many years of experience in helping our customers obtain commercial mortgages.

Property Development

Development facilities are ideal for businesses that need to fund property development projects, including new builds, conversions or refurbishments.

Building projects are a costly affair and property developers can access the funds they need to cover the costs, including land acquisition, planning permission, construction costs, and professional fees.

Bridging Finance

Bridging loans can provide a quick solution to a difficult funding situation. They are primarily secured against a property and the loan is serviced through monthly interest only payments, with the capital repayment due at the end of the term. Due to their short-term nature, these types of loan are subject to higher interest rates. 

Business Finance

ISC Future Finance | Business Finance

Balancing your working capital as a business owner, is a fine balancing act.

There are a number of business finance products that are available to you; these are just some of the more popular products our customers are using to help their businesses move forward.

Invoice Finance

Invoice finance is a funding solution for businesses seeking improved cash flow. Put simply, invoice finance allows a business to sell its unpaid invoices to a finance provider at a discounted rate, gaining immediate access to between 80 and 85% of the invoice value.

There are two types of invoice finance: factoring, where the finance provider manages the sales ledger and credit control, and invoice discounting, where the business retains control over credit control.

Unsecured Finance

Unsecured loans provide a quick way to access capital. Using an unsecured loan helps avoid the need to put assets or property at risk. These types of loans are ideal for businesses who require a quick injection of cash. 

They can also provide flexible repayment terms with fixed or variable interest rates and no early repayment fees.  

Secured Loans

Secured business loans allows businesses to access capital by using property or other assets which are owned by the directors or the business itself as collateral. 

Undertaking a secured loan, means businesses are able to access higher amounts of capital and longer repayment terms. Interest rates can be fixed or variable and interest only payments may also be available to help manage monthly outgoings. Secured loans are ideal for businesses at any point of their business lifecycle.

Merchant Cash Advance

Merchant Cash Advance allows business who accept credit and debit card payments to access funding. The amount the business can borrow is based upon the value of the card sales. The business receives cash up front, which is then repaid through a percentage of future card sales.

With a Merchant Cash Advance facility, there are no fixed interest rates and repayment terms are flexible.  It also provides the opportunity for additional access to funds as many facilities can often be renewed when 70% of the original funding has been repaid. Merchant Cash Advance facilities are one of the quickest ways for businesses to access much needed working capital.

Revolving Credit Facility

A revolving credit facility (RCF) gives businesses access to cash without the need to undertake a full loan. A RCF works similarly to an overdraft facility, it allows the business to access cash as they need it e.g. a new contract, purchasing of stock, etc. The business then repays the amount utilised and the facility limit returns to its full value. Facilities are normally 12 months and can be renewed with ease if the funder is prepared to do so.
