What is Credit Insurance? Credit insurance is a risk management tool that protects businesses from losses arising due to non-payment of trade debts. It offers coverage for both domestic and international trade transactions, ensuring that your receivables are protected against insolvency, protracted default, or political risks.

Benefits of Credit Insurance:

  1. Mitigating Bad Debt Risk: Credit insurance shields your business from the financial fallout of non-payment by customers, whether due to insolvency or other reasons.
  2. Enhancing Cash Flow: By safeguarding your accounts receivable, credit insurance provides a safety net that enables you to confidently extend credit terms to customers, thereby improving your cash flow.
  3. Facilitating Access to Financing: Lenders often view credit insurance as a sign of prudence and risk management, making it easier for businesses to secure financing at favorable terms.
  4. Enabling Expansion into New Markets: With the assurance of payment protection, businesses can explore new markets and customers without the fear of non-payment, thus fueling growth opportunities.
  5. Improving Supplier Relationships: Credit insurance not only protects your receivables but can also extend coverage to your payables, fostering stronger relationships with suppliers by assuring timely payments.

Merchant Card Advance

Do you take card payments, either in person or online?  Depending on your monthly card revenue, you can borrow between £1,000 – £1 million. And unlike a typical bank loan, repayments are made as a fixed percentage of your daily card takings – so you don’t repay the same agreed amount every month.  As your sales fluctuate, so do your repayments.

Asset Finance

Buying cars, vans, plant and machinery? Maybe you are buying an asset such as solar panels? Why not conserve your cash and spread the cost over a number of years? We have a number of lenders we work with and will find the right solution for you.

Commercial Loans

A Commercial Mortgage is a long-term loan taken by a business which is secured on a specific property or properties. With many different commercial mortgage lenders and literally hundreds of different commercial mortgage products, selecting the right one may seem confusing, but that’s where an experienced commercial finance broker can really help.

Mortgages with Hannie & Co

Dear Andy & Steve,

I wanted to thank you for the exceptional service you have provided in arranging my commercial mortgage.
As a mortgage broker, dealing with other peoples mortgage is second nature to me, but my own I knew I just wanted to leave it to the experts which was NOT me.
You got me a fantastic mortgage deal, and dealt with everything start to finish. You and Steve are both a pleasure to work with, and I am very grateful for everything you have done to obtain me my mortgage.

I am absolutely delighted with your service, and I will continue to use you in the future, and will have no hesitation in recommending you.

Brainwave Research UK Limited

I recently had the pleasure of working with Shadowfax Funding to secure funding for my company, and I cannot speak highly enough of the owner, Andy. From the outset, he was incredibly efficient, trustworthy and dedicated to finding a solution that would work for us.

Despite hitting several dead ends, Andy persevered and continued to search for opportunities that would fit our unique circumstances. He was always available to answer our questions and provide us with updates on the progress of our funding search, which gave us great peace of mind.

In the end, Andy found a UK government grant that was perfect for our company, and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. His dedication, knowledge, and expertise made all the difference, and I would highly recommend Shadowfax Funding to anyone seeking funding for their business.

Overall, I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Andy and the team at Shadowfax Funding. They truly went above and beyond to help us secure the funding we needed, and I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone looking for a trustworthy and efficient funding solution.

Andy supported my business in our recent buyout of two non-exec Shareholders here at Blue Octopus. To say he went above and beyond is an understatement. His hard work and experience really helped us find the necessary level of support complete our purchase, with a lot of time being extremely patient with our process too. I would highly recommend Andy if anyone is thinking of raising business finance for MBO’s and/or simply growth in their businesses.
