2018 was a hugely successful year for Ultimate Finance but we’ve never been a business that rests on our laurels and are always looking for new ways to support more SMEs across the UK with good funding. We’re therefore pleased to announce that we’ve teamed up with NMBS (the National Merchant Buying Society) to support its membership of independent builders, plumbers, hardware and timber merchants.
There is still serious ambiguity over exactly what Brexit will look like which will undoubtedly be causing issues for many independent merchants in the UK. In fact, the British Chambers of Commerce latest business sentiment survey shows economic uncertainty has seen confidence drop significantly – something which could severely hinder many in the sector.
Our partnership with NMBS will ensure we’re there to support more than 1,000 merchant members through these challenging times and provide the funding they need to keep moving, survive and thrive. This could take the form of anything from our Asset Finance offering to give access to the equipment they need day-to-day to grow capacity, through to Invoice Finance to help fill the seemingly ever-present late payments blackhole. Alongside this, the Ultimate Finance team can use its vast experience of backing small businesses to help them navigate their way through the year and come out stronger on the other side.
