Are you trying to boil the ocean?

JFS is improving access to commercial finance in Northern Ireland by sharing our knowledge of the alternative finance market. Business owners, myself included are trying to do everything ourselves. That’s not always a good thing. This past year I decided I was going to stop trying to boil the ocean. A review of my business showed me the time was right to make a change. I’ve made new hires on my team and outsourced. Now I spend all my time finding great deals on commercial finance and a day a week on a new commercial property project I’m working on.

No paperwork, no accounts admin, no more octopus businessman trying to boil the ocean.

I am using my time to bring more clients on board and grow my business. Showing our clients the new business loan options available to their business is a lot better use of my time. We have arranged great bridging finance deals for retail, a commercial property deal to help a business move to new premises and a business owner buy the property they were renting to save money and secure the business for the future.

JFS brokering commercial finance for Sole Traders in Northern Ireland

Can a sole trader get a business loan? The answer is a big YES. Microbusinesses run by sole traders make up most SMEs in Northern Ireland. Just because a small business does not mean that it should not have improved access to business finance. Sole traders can qualify for business loans, but finding an appropriate lender to borrow the money from can be more challenging than it is for limited companies.
