An efficient way to ensure you get a fair deal.

Could time to pay impact your banking covenants?

As a result of the pandemic, many businesses have entered into time to pay arrangements for their corporation tax. At some point though, historic tax payments will overlap with new taxation liabilities. This may create further cash flow pressure, particularly at a time when working capital also needs to be ramped up. In addition, the duplicity of taxation payments may negatively impact banking covenant tests. If you need help with forecasting or banking covenants, contact us for assistance.

“During these unprecedented and worrying times, financial stability for SME’s is paramount to help to ensure their survival and future success. I commend Delphine Paterson for her wise counsel, knowledge and dedication in guiding us through the myriad of protocols to take advantage of the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan scheme and future fund.

If you need working capital facilities to help you to bounce back higher, look no further.”

“Thank you Delphine for all your efforts and long late hours spent working with us to successfully achieve funding for the purchase of our target asset. Your knowledge of the commercial financing market was instrumental in achieving the most appropriate funding partner. Your diligence, knowledge and relationships with active lending institutions aided in securing competitive long term financing.

We feel your dedication and active process management made the difference in pushing the lender along to fast track the underwriting process; your anticipation and responsive attention in foreseeing the details required by the lenders greatly shortened the process. We are happy to recommend you to anyone seeking commercial financing; they will greatly benefit from your experience and guidance.

We will be sure to contact you regarding future purchases and re-financings.”

– Owen Kelly and Gerry Murphy, Directors at Bruhenny Grange Hotel Ltd

“Getting funding is one thing. Getting the right funding needs the right professionals on your team. Delphine’s knowledge of how the banking industry works achieved both of our two, perhaps seemingly diverse, objectives. Funding the buy-out of a senior shareholder and providing cash flow for a period of strong business growth.

Looking back, I realise we could not have done it without her. She will be an integral part of our team to achieve our future business expansion plans.”

– Andrew Fordyce, Managing Director at IFSE Group
