What Are Business Loans & Asset Finance?

A business loan is a commercial loan where the funding is paid directly to you to use for any purpose. You can invest the loan into any area of your company; you can upgrade production lines, purchase new machine tools, or packing equipment, for example. Business loans enable you to invest in your company without making large upfront payments.

Asset finance can be used to purchase a wide range of engineering or manufacturing assets. Hire purchase agreements allow your company to purchase the asset once you’ve completed repayments. Hire purchase agreements to allow your company to purchase assets or equipment without having to use up valuable working capital. Utilising finance enables you to spread the cost of the purchase. At Millbrook, if you wish to purchase the asset you can for a fee that’s agreed at the beginning of your contract.

  • The cost of the asset can be spread over as long as seven years with fixed monthly payments, which is ideal for long-term budgeting and forecasting.
  • Finance for engineering and manufacturing companies helps you invest working capital into other areas of your organisation while still being able to upgrade equipment and operations.

Business Loans

  • You don’t have to put down security to secure a business loan, however, secured loans are available.

Disadvantages

Business Loans

  • If you have a bad credit score, your interest payments may increase. By working with an expert finance company such as Millbrook, we secure the best deal available for you regardless of your credit score.
  • Before taking out a business loan, research and discuss your finance options as asset finance may be the better solution.
  • You will need to repay the commercial loan, as well as interest – the longer the loan term the higher the total interest charges.

Asset Finance

  • If you miss a payment, the lender may take possession of the asset you’re financing.
  • The minimum term will be around a year.
  • Some damage will be covered in maintenance and servicing, however, if not, you may incur costs or have to obtain insurance.

What Are The Fees & Interest Rates?

Interest rates on unsecured business loans can be as low as 3.2%. Secured loans can include even lower interest rates because the lender has security in the form of an asset or property. We ensure your contract is honest and transparent to ensure you understand all lender fees before you enter an agreement.

There are no arrangement fees with asset finance. However, there may be an administration fee charged of around £150 + VAT. Asset finance for engineering and manufacturing equipment feature lower interest rates as the security of the asset encourages lenders to offer more competitive rates.
