Engineering Machines – Sale and Leaseback Cashflow Financing Facility


A very long established engineering business (circa 60 years) with factories throughout the Midlands fell into conflict with both their bankers and their factors simultaneously. An urgent cash injection was required to stave off pressure and address issues with suppliers, wages, rent and crown considerations.

Allied was able to organise a short notice valuation of the machinery located throughout the five depots, certify those items which were unemcumbered and advance a sum equivalent to 90% of Forced Sale/Fire Sale Valuation.

Additionally the sale and leaseback facility gave the company plenty of time to renegotiate more favourable facilities for itself and at the same time safely parked its important assets with an organisation sympathetic to its cashflow needs.

ROSH Compliant Project

An East Midlands based electronics manufacturer invested £100K in new lead free wave soldering equipment to
replace their previous technology and remain compliant with the new ROSH regulations.

The borrower elected to proceed with Hire Purchase over 60 months. As the machinery to be replaced had no value, funds were limited for a deposit. Accordingly, Allied Universal documented the facility with no deposit equipment Hire Purchase and Leasing with a VAT deferment.

All our competitors struggled to provide facilities with terms of over four years, and whilst conditionally one and two month vat deferments were available widely, none of them would agree to a no deposit facility.
