Skipton Business Finance win another award

Tuesday, 12 April, 2011 - 11:36

Skipton Business Finance has been awarded the "DealMakers Global Award Winner 2011" in the category of Factoring & Invoice Discounting Provider of the Year.

Skipton Business Finance (SBF) is a business that was established to help create wealth and employment in the UK and not simply to make a profit for its shareholders. It is this culture that sets SBF aside from its competitors and enables SBF to look at each new business opportunity on its own merits.

SBF is part of the Skipton Building Society Group that is fiercely proud of its mutual status, run by its members for the benefit of its members, and this has enabled SBF to take a unique view on providing working capital solutions to its clients for over a decade.

During the well publicised economic downturn and subsequent modest recovery, SBF has been able to grow its portfolio and lending book in a market that has contracted as a consequence. SBF has flourished by remaining open for business and its appetite for new lending has remained high. This proactive approach has seen several larger clients look to SBF as a real alternative to the mainstream bank overdraft and this has seen SBF’s lending reach record levels this year.

SBF provides invoice finance facilities to businesses ranging from new start to £20million and is able to offer facilities within 5 working days of the initial meeting if required. The speed of response is a testament to SBF's short reporting lines that cut through red tape and make decisions possible in such quick timeframes.

SBF obtains the majority of its business from accountants, bankers, brokers and turnaround professionals and is always looking for more approved partners to introduce work. SBF enjoys excellent relationships with the intermediaries it works with and is able to offer excellent commissions as well as reciprocal work to partner firms.

Greg Bell, Managing Director, said: "This latest award for SBF is a testimony to the hard work of the entire team and I would like to thank all those readers that voted for SBF in this prestigious category".

SBF has flourished by remaining open for business and its appetite for new lending has remained high. This proactive approach has seen several larger clients look to SBF as a real alternative to the mainstream bank overdraft and this has seen SBF’s lending reach record levels this year.

We are happy to provide invoice finance facilities to businesses ranging from new start to £20million and are able to offer facilities within 5 working days of the initial meeting if required.

Our speed is a testament to SBF’s low rise reporting lines that cut through red tape and make decisions possible in a realistic timeframe - a fact that we feel has helped us win this prestegious award.

A subsidiary of Skipton Building Society, SBF is a leading independent invoice factoring and invoice discounting provider, offering a range of working capital solutions for businesses with annual sales ranging from new-start to £30m.
