Another week, another newsletter from our Managing Director Mark Smillie! This week, he’s set his sights on why business owners should consider using a finance broker. To get the content directly from the source, consider signing up for Mark’s newsletter here.


“Dear Business Community,

This week I will get straight to the point.

Business owners are regularly paying double the rate of interest they should be. Why is this? In my experience, it’s because they go directly to a big-name finance company with a lot of advertising that they’ve heard of, rather than find one which is good for them specifically…

This is fantastic for the big finance company who will get your business. They’re inundated with applications so they’re able to charge you more, and they don’t have to pay a broker thanks to their marketing team.


Been turned down for finance recently? Let’s shop around…

In the last week we have had 2 offers for Government backed loans, both for £250k! For one, the process took five working days, for the other it was just three!

We had success because we knew how to package the application and who to take it to in order to get success the first-time round.


Tap into my network…

I have been providing business help and advice since 1990, I tend to speak only to decision makers and senior staff, meaning that I can take you to the VIP area.

It is true that I just love what I do because over the years I have not only created a network of valuable connections, but they have become friends too.

This means that I can get great rates for you; normally 10% to 50% cheaper than going direct! Remember, business finance is like the sea, it constantly changes, bringing joy or disaster; it is very hard to read unless you are on it 7 days a week, and experience is everything


I deal with all credit ratings, and can support you with emergency finance and company restructure.



Some Company Directors ensure a good night’s sleep by not worrying about company finances, or one of their major clients going bust! Imagine that…?

How do they do it? Well, they have a large finance facility secured on their book debts and can use it whenever they want!

I can get that for you. All sectors welcome especially Construction!

Where I differ from some is that with so many types of finance available, I know my limitations. I do not say I am an expert at every type of finance, but I do have someone on my team who is that expert.

Please look at my business finance testimonials.

You are always welcome to call me on my mobile 07710 466166.

Let’s talk today.


Very best wishes,

Mark Smillie”
