Managing your day-to-day finances
When it comes to managing your cash flow, you need to know that you have sufficient funds to fall back on for any unexpected expenses. Having cash tied up in unpaid invoices can also put a strain on your working capital. Santander Invoice Finance allows you to benefit from instant access to an ongoing supply of capital that’s linked to your sales.
Buying assets is a major commitment for all businesses, and this is perhaps more so in the manufacturing industry. Outright purchases can be a drain on working capital and it’s not always the most efficient way to manage capital expenditure. Santander Asset Finance offers a flexible range of solutions helping you to spread the cost of buying assets with terms and structures suited to you. With preferential rates available this can allow you to preserve other funding facilities for future requirements.
Funding for longer term growth
We offer a range of flexible commercial mortgages. These can be fixed or variable repayments, interest only or capital and interest repayments. We’d work to help you secure the premises to support your business growth.
As your business grows so will the demands on your premises. So whether you’re after fixed rates with monthly repayments or variable rates and flexible terms, our business loans can be structured to meet your business’ needs.
Products and services are subject to eligibility, status, terms and conditions and availability. The right to decline any application is reserved. ANY PROPERTY USED AS SECURITY, WHICH MAY INCLUDE YOUR HOME, MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP YOUR LOAN REPAYMENTS.
