Using assets to provide additional working capital

Any business involved in heavy manufacturing maybe able to release cash from the value of their plant and machinery. Providing there is value within the machinery cash can be released just about for any purpose. It could be to provide additional working capital, it could be for a one off project or the cash can be used to pay the tax man. Refinancing of existing plant and machinery is a facility which is often overlooked as it is is one that is not traditionally provided by the high street banks and finance companies

XL Business Finance has been helping businesses for over 10 years refinance plant and machinery. In the current economic  climate it is perceived that the high street banks are not supporting businesses with their funding requirements.Many business are therefore looking at alternative ways to provide additional working capital or cash for one off projects.

Banks however are not traditionally risk takers and do not have the expertise to provide asset refinance in its purest form. Refinancing plant and machinery is a very specialist area in which there a few funders that have the expertise to do the job properly. There are 3 ways that assets can be refinanced. Loan and chattel mortgage, sale and hire purchase back or sale and lease back. Which facility is best or you depends upon the type of equipment, and the written down value of the kit in your books.
