Why should I use Goodman Corporate Finance to facilitate my funding requirements?

Why shouldn’t we just go out to the market ourselves?

At Goodman Corporate Finance we take the time to listen to your needs and tailor a facility accordingly. By shopping around the finance market we can source you the best deal, making you savings even after taking our fees into account. We have strong relationships with a wide range of lenders meaning we can access deals that may not be available directly. We also take most of the administration tasks off your hands, saving you time too.

What are the benefits of using a full member of the NACFB?

Being a full member of the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers means we strictly adhere to an industry recognised Code of Practice – guaranteeing you a professional and assured approach.

What rates of interest can we expect?

Interest rates are subject to status, however thanks to our extensive range of potential funders, the volume of deals we facilitate and our position in the market place, we have access to some of lowest rates available.

What Loan to Values [LTVs] can you achieve?

We regularly provide finance up to 100% LTV. This is subject to status and additional security, which our advisors will discuss with you.

What are your charges?

Our charges will depend on the facility being arranged and you will receive complete transparency when it comes to the cost of our services. We always offer a completely free of charge appraisal of your proposal and you will be made fully aware of all costs involved in facilitating your funding requirements before signing any agreement with ourselves or the lender.  Therefore you can be assured that you are always able to make a non-pressured, fully informed decision regarding the most appropriate and cost effective option to take.

How do I know if I am eligible for a loan?

All our funding packages are tailor-made, based on your needs and individual circumstances. Please speak to one of our advisors to find out whether you may be eligible.

Does a business need to have been operating for a minimum number of years to qualify for funding?

No, we can work with businesses right from initial start up to more established enterprises. Many lenders and loan options are available, all with different criteria. Some may not be available to you if you haven’t been trading for long but if you talk to us we should be able to find some options for you.

Can Goodman Corporate Finance facilitate a loan for any business?

We specialise in supporting small to medium sized businesses but have access to a wide range of lenders and loans. Please contact us to discuss the options available.

In the past I have defaulted on personal and/or business loans. Will I still be able to access funding?

This will depend on your individual circumstances. While previous defaults will certainly limit the options available it is still worth calling us to talk through your current situation and requirements to see if we can find a match.

How do you decide which lender is best for me?

We maintain regular contact with our panel of more than 200 funders to ensure we have up to date knowledge of and access to all the best deals on the market. When matching a client to a lender, we consider many factors including the amount of money you need, how quickly you need it, the health of your finances, your industry, and your credit rating. This helps us identify the most appropriate lender to suit your individual needs and maximise the likelihood of securing funding.

How long will it take for the funds to arrive in my bank?

Depending on the type of facility you need, our team can sometimes access finance literally in a matter of hours, or more complicated deals can take a number of weeks.

Will I need a solicitor or an accountant?

Each client is different and this will depend on the type of facility being arranged. Our advisors will work with you to structure the right professional team to support a successful transaction.
