Specialist practice finance for professionals & practice owners

Paper Professions

Over the last five years funding for professional practices has become increasingly difficult to secure with funders demanding more and more information about applicant firms.
Shire Professional Funding recognises the issues and overcomes them by focussing on our clients and the specific needs of their practice. Our team of advisors take a different approach to providing financial products, selecting those that are designed to support your business and assist your growth plans. 

Our range of finance options cover anything from VAT to litigation funding and from office refurbishment to the purchase of capital equipment, and allows you to:-

  • Purchase additional work
  • Buy out a partner or buy a department from another practice
  • Release “lock-up” or WIP
  • Apply for or renew practising certificates 
Tax Funding 

Meet your tax commitments

Tax bills often put an unwelcome strain on cash flow. Our tailored tax funding solutions enable you to spread the cost of these, freeing up existing cash resources.

Specialist credit lines

Whist traditional bank financing methods are hard to obtain to cover future tax liabilities, Shire Professional Funding has access to funds that other finance providers may not. 

We have several specialist credit lines for tax funding and we call on over 20 years’ experience to determine the best funder for each client’s particular requirements.

Avoid the overdraft

Even when there’s enough money to pay, make sure it doesn’t put a strain on next year’s cash flow. If it’s taken you by surprise, don’t automatically go for the overdraft route. There are lots of other, possibly cheaper, options to help you out, like a 6 or 12 month unsecured loan. An unspecified loan facility can pay the tax, whilst offsetting the interest costs against future profits. Lots of healthcare professionals are using a loan facility to assist with part or all of their tax liability. Take a look at some of these case studies and find out what Tax Funding can do for you.
