If you need help you manage your finances
We will consider cases of financial difficulty sympathetically and positively. You’ll usually spot problems first and should let us know as soon as possible. If we become aware of problems, we’ll let you know in writing. If speed seems to be important, we may try to contact you by phone, fax or e-mail.
This list gives a few examples of what may concern us, particularly if you do not explain what is happening:
- If you go overdrawn without our agreement.
- If you go over your agreed overdraft limit, especially more than once.
- If there are large increases or decreases in your business’s turnover.
- If you are trading at a loss.
- If you suddenly lose a key customer or employee.
- If you sell a large part of your business.
- If you use a facility for purposes other than those agreed with us.
- If you fail to make a loan repayment.
- If you do not keep to conditions set out in the loan agreement.
- If you do not supply agreed monitoring information on time.
- If another creditor brings a winding-up petition or other legal action against your business.
We’ll do all that we can to help you overcome any difficulties. We’ll develop a plan with you for dealing with your financial difficulties and we’ll confirm in writing, what we have agreed.
