VAT on purchase Loan Launched

A six month Loan facility from £10K upwards.

Just Cashflow is launching a VAT on Purchases Loan specifically designed to support businesses that are looking to invest and grow in a post-COVID world.

Martine Catton, Chief Commercial Officer, explains,” Newspaper headlines tend to focus on the potential high number of business failures caused by COVID and the various lockdowns. However, little attention is given to those businesses that have weathered the crisis well by being innovative, creative and adaptable.

“The new loan facility, between £10,000 to £1 million, is designed to cover VAT paid on commercial properties or other large asset purchases. It is for a maximum six month term in order to provide flexibility while claiming back VAT from HMRC.

Martine adds, “ A classic example would be a business that is presented with an opportunity to buy the ideal commercial property that has become available. The price is £250,000 but with the VAT added on another £50,000 has to be found.

“Of course this £50,000 can be claimed back from the HMRC but this takes on average about four months. This extra money can be an initial deal breaker with some funders unwilling to advance further monies to cover this liability. Even if it isn’t this is £50,000 that can be more usefully used within the business and can greatly ease post-COVID cash flow issues.

“It’s important for lenders to anticipate the COVID challenges SMEs are going to be facing and provide the flexible finance facilities they need. This will leave businesses better placed to make a major contribution to the UK’s economic recovery.”
