Acquisition Finance

You need to ensure that you get the best acquisition finance deal available in the market when investing in your own business.

I can’t recommend Samera enough to anybody looking to secure finance for acquisition of a dental practice. I speak from personal experience … It took only days to get the finance in place and furthermore Nigel Crossman has gone over his remit in helping me along the process with valuable advice that saves me much time and money! Basically if you want a result … call Samera!

Five stars

Many vendors now require proof of funding before they will accept your offer and remove their clinic or practice from the market. It is important, therefore, to ensure that you are well-placed to obtain a commitment to the funding once you have found the right business.

You can get an indication of what you can borrow from us at an early stage and if the information required by lenders is collected early on then it is easier to move to a full credit-backed offer to pass onto a seller.

Samera Finance is registered with the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) and is also a member of the NACFB (National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers), as well as being a panel member of all the major lenders, which enables us to introduce clients to them.

Refinancing

Could you get better terms on your existing loans?

We tend to review our car and house insurance costs on a regular basis, but seldom look at the costs of our borrowing.

What may have been an excellent deal at the beginning may now be looking a little expensive!

Different lenders charge different interest rates, rates change independently of lenders, payment schedules can be changed – there is a lot that can be renegotiated when it comes to your existing loans.

What you are paying right now may not be the best option out there for your business.

Nigel successfully renegotiated our 2 practice loans. It was a hassle-free process, that resulted in a better interest rate. I will happily use Samera’s commercial finance service again.

Refinancing with Samera

We will review your existing lending commitments, absolutely free. We will be able to let you know very quickly if the agreement you have is good in today’s market or whether we think it can be improved via refinancing.

Our team know the UK dental finance industry inside and out – if there’s a better deal out there for you, our team will find it.

We can then discuss the costs of sourcing a new and better finance agreement to assist your cash flow.

Property Finance

There are many different products available in terms of property finance for purchase and development.

Commercial Mortgages

Commercial mortgages can be used to purchase shops/offices and warehouses. Working in the same way as residential mortgages they spread the cost over an agreed period.

The most common commercial mortgage is an existing business buying its own premises from which they operate. This allows you to stop paying rent and start paying back the commercial mortgage, eventually owning the property outright.

NACFB Commercial Brokers Awards 2022 Finalists

You can sometimes obtain 100% finance if you have a good trading record and additional security.

A commercial mortgage might be suitable for an experienced landlord who wants to buy further properties and place several properties on one mortgage.

We have a great relationship with advisors at Samera. We are in middle of a purchase. Samera advisors are doing an amazing and thorough job, from assessing practices, obtaining loan to providing accounting services. Nigel has been very patient, understanding and considerate. Overall, very happy with the service and would highly recommend.

Five stars

Auction Finance

Properties bought at auction usually have to be paid for within 28 days, there are lenders who specialise in auction finance. This is much quicker than obtaining a commercial mortgage but interest rates are higher due to the short-term nature of the finance. Usually, owners will remortgage in due course on to a standard commercial mortgage

Some lenders will give you an agreement in principle prior to an auction, this usually has conditions such as the type/condition and price of the property.

Bridging Finance

This type of lending covers any short-term finance to cover building and development costs. Usually, this type of property finance runs for 3-24 months with interest charged on a monthly basis.

Used to cover the funding gap where a property has been purchased and the mortgage is not in place.

Development Finance

Development finance covers both land purchase and building costs. A lender will look to finance a percentage of the land purchase and the building costs. 

The Gross Development Value (GDV) will show the return on the project at the end of the development, whether it is a refurbishment of an existing property or a full build of a property from an empty piece of land. Lenders are repaid from the first properties sold.

You need to assess your project as to costs, land purchase/build costs/sale costs in best and worst scenarios. You then need to find the right finance to take the project forward at the outset.

Asset Finance

We do not charge you for help sourcing asset finance

The Samera Finance team is made of of former bankers, with decades of experience in the UK’s healthcare financial lending market.

We have access to many asset finance providers, including the major banks as well as the specialist asset finance companies. When purchasing an asset it is always best to test the market and see what is available, rather than just approaching one lender.

We can help you find the best options to finance healthcare equipment, machinery, vehicles and consumables. We make no charge to you for the sourcing of these loans.

If you are buying equipment for your business, from computer systems to larger equipment such as scanners and chairs, then consider financing this over a period of years, rather than paying this out of cash flow and perhaps putting a strain on your bank account.

Asset finance can be structured over a number of years (3-5 years usually) to assist you in managing your finances and providing you with a regular monthly payment.

You can also use this type of finance for vehicle purchase. Even if you have already obtained a quote – obtain some comparisons to make sure you get the best deal.

Dan worked very hard to help us complete our arrangements. We presented him with several issues that he managed to find a solution to every time and always gave us the best way possible. Always professional, efficient and helpful in our dealings with him.

Tax and Education Loans

Tax loans can be obtained to repay tax liabilities where profits have increased or the money set aside has had to be used for something else.

Tax loans are payable over one year and rates vary between 8% and 12% – the short-term nature of these loans reflect the higher interest rates to provide a return for the lender. Samera Finance makes no charge to you for this sourcing of tax loans.

Brilliant Team – Both my wife and I were new to the Dental Market, the support we received from Nigel was simply amazing. He understand your needs based on a consultative approach, craft a solution in accordance to the needs which is quite rare to see. I have no hesitation in recommending Nigel and Samera as a go to place.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Education loans can also be obtained to cover the cost of courses and professional education. Many clients fund these through credit cards and this is often an expensive way of dealing with these costs.

Residential Mortgage Loans

We are commercial finance brokers but often as part of a commercial deal funds need to be raised from a residential property.

In some cases, clients just want to review their existing residential mortgage costs, which at this time of low-interest rates is a sensible move.

Very quick to get me the finance I had struggled for several years to get. I will definitely be using this service again in the future!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We utilise the services of a residential mortgage broker, we can provide them with the information that they require and once we have established what can be achieved they will deal with you directly.

We have recently introduced several clients who have been seeking higher mortgages to utilise the funds for other projects and for those who want to reduce their current interest costs.
