Case Studies

Terranova Group

The Old Farmhouse Jewellery

Such a wonderful customer to have worked with... and what a fantastic good news story ending in a life changing purchase order from FatFace. Getting our customers advisor-led access to the finance they need efficiently and quickly is key to our success.. Owner Victoria Whitaker said...

“Using Number Eight Business Finance will be my first option for finance in the future. Gaining access to finance is a maze! Therefore, it makes sense to work with an organisation that can advise me on the best options available and be clear of the timescales, too.”


Woodlands Lodge

The traditional method of raising funds from a high street bank was proving fruitless and very time consuming for hotel owners Rob and Imogene Anglaret. After being referred by a leading firm of architects, Number Eight were able to arrange an unsecured loan, over 5 years with no early settlement penalties, enabling the New Forest based hotel to proceed with  their leading edge extension plans to offer the UK's first passive-house accommodation. Owner Rob Anglatret said...

“Within 2 weeks of contacting Number Eight, funding had been approved. In addition, the lender agreed to allow us to draw down at each stage of the development. Thank you to all the team at Number Eight, we couldn’t put a price on all the help and support you have given us”


Fusion Experience Ltd

Fusion Experience Ltd are based in London. The company specialises in IT & global communications technology. They approached Number Eight when the company needed funding to support a range of requirements including working capital and the consolidation of existing bad debt. Finance was also needed for research & development purposes. Steve Edkins, CEO, of Fusion Experience Ltd. found working with Number Eight and the lender, RateSetter, both efficient and effective...

“All the necessary due diligence was carried out in a positive manner and I was kept fully informed at all stages of the process, even when things appeared to take longer than expected. On the occasions that I needed to speak to someone, they returned my calls promptly, were knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. Understanding our business was important and it was refreshing".

Bassaire Ltd

The directors of Bassaire approached their incumbent bank for finance, but found the process slow and the security requirements too harsh in the light of the company’s successful track record and length of time as a customer.

The introduction to Number Eight Business Finance was made by the company’s accountants Following an initial meeting, the team were able to quickly identify an alternative to a traditional bank loan. Bassaire Managing Director, Neil Thomas, said...

“Number Eight came up with an option to provide finance within our timeframe and it was hassle free. They were a lot easier to deal with than the bank.”


Exhibition & Event company

The company is a complete event partner, designing and producing exhibition stands, providing clients with project management, building and installation services throughout the UK & Europe.
Services include floor plan production, event planning and management, venue and equipment logistics and on-site support.
Additional services include quality display systems, equipment transport and storage & maintenance.
The capital raised was used to fully refurbish the customer’s head office based in London. The refurbishment included re-decoration, various electrical installations, new flooring, general building works and new high tech office furniture throughout.
Initially, our customer enquired about funding the refurbishment using Asset Finance.
After careful consideration, it was agreed that Asset Finance would not be the best-fit product in this case. Due to the types of assets and various intangibles, the overall cost of finance proved to be an expensive option. Therefore, a simple and unsecured business loan was recommended and provided within 4 working days.

“First class service and thank you for securing our term loan for our upcoming office refit. Just four days from completion of application to receiving funds!!".
