£2.4m bridging finance facility secured for construction business

The Challenge

A business within the construction industry required urgent access to cash to pay an overdue tax bill with HMRC. The directors were under significant pressure to settle the overdue payment within 45 days, made more complicated in the lead up to the Christmas break.

The Solution

PMD were able to arrange a bridging loan of over £2m that was secured against the director’s personal property portfolio. The facility was provided on an interest only basis and benefited from a streamlined valuation process plus search and title indemnity insurance in order to expedite deal completion.

The Result

The facility secured by PMD allowed the client to access their capital within 40 days and avoid any enforcement action to be taken by HMRC. With the benefit of time now on their side, PMD will be able to support the client with a longer-term refinancing option.
