We support our clients when trading goods or services overseas

Trading overseas presents many opportunities as well as challenges for businesses, not least to cashflow. Export Finance supports businesses that are already doing business overseas or may want to take access of international markets. By unlocking the value of outstanding invoices you can increase your cashflow while taking advantage of overseas opportunities. 

To help support you  selling goods or services internationally we can help you by collecting customer payments. If you want to protect against currency fluctuations, we can offer our integrated Foreign Exchange services.

We also offer a confidential service

If you do not want your customers to know how you’re funded, or if you would prefer to keep your credit control function in-house, we can offer confidential invoice financing

This means we do not disclose to your customers that you are using an Invoice financing facility and you maintain the relationship with your customers.
