Yes, we are authorised and regulated for credit-broking activities by the Financial Conduct Authority ("FCA"). We are not a lender. Our FCA Firm Reference Number is 720101. For more information, please visit the FCA website at: https://register.fca.org.uk/. Please note that business customers may not be protected under the Consumer Credit Act 1974 or FCA rules.
We can introduce you (whether direct or through a specialist credit broker) to a number of finance companies ("funders") who may be able to finance your transaction. There are other funders to which we cannot introduce you which may also be able to offer you finance.
We will provide you with information and explanations about the finance products that may be available to you and, where we recommend a product to you to you, we will ensure that this is based on the information you give us about your needs and circumstances so that it is suitable for you. Finance is arranged subject to status and terms and conditions. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to secure finance for you.
We are not independent financial advisers and so are unable to provide you with independent financial advice. We are, however, independent of the funders and brokers we work with.
No, you make no payment to us.
But a funder or broker we work with may pay us for introducing you to them. Different funders/brokers may pay us different amounts. We will tell you how much we will be paid if you ask.
We will use your information to obtain quotes from funders and brokers to process finance applications through them and we and/or they may also conduct a search of your record held with one or more credit reference agencies. Credit checks may as a result appear on your credit file lodged by organisations with whom you have not dealt directly. The personal information collected will also be shared with fraud prevention agencies who will use it to prevent fraud and money laundering and to verify your identity. If fraud is detected you could be refused certain services, finance or employment.
We are registered as a data controller with the Information Commissioner's Office under registration number ZA563542
