Block discounting

Quick release cash for long-term growth

Secure revolving credit facility that allows you to raise funds against future income streams so you can grow your business

Block discounting is a finance product that allows independent finance providers and lenders to release capital which is tied up in customer finance agreements.


We offer a revolving credit facility for an agreed amount that allows individual drawdowns to be structured where we purchase ‘blocks’ of your customer finance agreements.  The drawdowns are structured to match the profile of the underlying agreements and are repaid over the average life of those agreements.

What is block discounting?

Block discounting is a flexible approach to wholesale funding that allows you—an independent finance company—to release capital tied up in existing agreements. It’s a simple, secure, and flexible way to raise funds against a future income stream, allowing you to immediately reinvest in company growth and provide financial agreements to new customers.

How does block discounting work?

We release capital through a loan against a block of agreements at a discounted advance rate.

Additional benefits of block discounting: 

  • You remain in control of collecting and managing the customers
  •  Funds can be released as and when required
  • The advance is repaid at a fixed price over a set period giving you confidence in your cash flow
