The deadline for CBILS is 31 March 2021 so the countdown has started. Whether you need equipment for expansion, diversification or replacement it could be worth considering an asset finance facility utilising this scheme.
Whilst the Budget on 3 March announced a Recovery Loan Scheme would be available from 6 April 2021 this simply provides the lender with a guarantee of 80%, and does not offer financial incentives.
We do not believe in taking on debt that you do not require, however with all interest and fees paid for the first year with a CBILS facility, it could be very cost effective. With a 12 month capital repayment holiday also available it could be a great way for you to invest in equipment to give you an immediate return on investment.
The deadline for CBILS applications has now expired, but please get in contact to discuss other finance options which may work for you.
The super-deduction measure was announced in the Budget, and starts on 1 April 2021. For expenditure incurred from then until 31 March 2023, companies can claim 130% capital allowances on most new plant and machinery that usually qualifies for 18% main rate writing down allowance.
This is only available to limited companies for new equipment. However the Annual Investment Allowance is still available until 31 December 2021 for other types of business and used equipment. You can find more information and examples on the Government Super Deduction Factsheet.
Although CBILS applications close on 31 March, any approval issued will be valid for up to 6 months. Therefore, if you are a limited company, you would also be able to take advantage of the tax super deduction.
Asset finance is suitable for a wide range of businesses and organisations, including sole traders and small to medium-sized enterprises, as well as larger companies and corporations. We can arrange asset finance on almost anything you need for business use.
You can apply for a CBILS facility if your business:
If you want to borrow £30,000 or more, you also need to confirm that your business wasn’t classed as a business in difficulty on 31 December 2019.
Businesses from any sector can apply, except banks, insurers, public-sector bodies and state-funded primary and secondary schools

We have published this message as the payment that has been collected from you has nothing to do with our company. We are an asset finance company in Hampshire, we do not collect direct debits from any customers and only deal with businesses.
We receive many calls about this, as we have a similar name to the company that is collecting these direct debits. The company responsible is Focus Finance and Marketing Limited. Their website is below, however they do not answer their phone or respond:
Our understanding is that bank details are being obtained from people unknowingly, or on the pretence of providing a loan, and this is a fraudulent company.
We would therefore request you contact your bank to report this and ask them to escalate to their fraud team and stop further payments from being taken.
