Tax loans explained

A tax liability is the amount of taxation that a business incurs based on current tax laws. Tax liabilities are incurred from earning income, a gain on the sale of an asset or other taxable events.

When a business’s tax liability is due, they must ensure they have the adequate cashflow to meet that demand. A tax bill cannot be put off until a they are in a position to pay it, HMRC does not hesitate in issuing penalties for firms that do not pay their tax liabilities on time. Late penalties are just one of HMRC’s consequences of non or late payment, others are issuing a wind up order or even liquidating a company in its entirety.

Many businesses have cashflow that can go up and down over the seasons, and it is imperative therefore that funds are put away to meet their tax obligations. However, if they find that for unforeseen circumstances they are unable to meet their obligations, or even if quite simply a business has a better use for that money, help is at hand!

How we’ve helped businesses with their tax loans

We’ve helped all types of businesses across the UK gain access to funding to settle their tax and VAT liabilities. We source the best rates for you. We help businesses free up their cash flow. We partner with lenders who specialise in tax loan lending.

Warehouse firm not wanting to utilise all their capital

The Director of a large warehouse firm used to source finance to settle their TAX bill. The Director had been offered a fantastic opportunity where he could buy the premises he was renting at a discounted price and had adequate capital to fund the purchase, but not much more.

The Director decided to use their capital to take advantage of this new opportunity, and to obtain a loan to pay the TAX liability. We matched the Director to a lender who was able to lend the full amount of money to settle the liability, on a 3 month term.

Property development firm needing funds quickly

We were contacted by a large property development firm, who had a couple of weeks left before their tax bill payment was due. They had expected the sale of a recent development to cover the cost, however the sale was delayed and they could not liquidate any other asset in the short timescale.

Our specialist lender was able to approve the firm within 48 hours, with funds being drawn down within a week. The client went on to settle the loan once they had received the proceeds of the development sale.

VAT Accounting error

We helped a professional services firm who had unfortunately uncovered an accounting error, meaning the VAT demand was going to be considerably more than expected. The company turned a considerable profit, but would not have be able to raise the funds in time, so a VAT loan seemed the best option.

After speaking to our specialist lender, a loan was agreed on rates which were much lower than the Directors expected. They had assumed that because the loan was needed quickly and for a short term that it would be expensive but were really pleased this was not the case.
