Providing the finance for your pub or bar purchase is what Acorn.finance are about.
Since 1997 we've been one of the UK's leading specialists in pub finance.
Our specialist advisors understand the difficulties faced by business owners when trying to arrange their own finance. We'll save you time and money by approaching the lenders who are funding pubs like yours - at the best rates.
Buying a freehold pub will generally involve a commercial mortgage.
A commercial (or business) mortgage is one where the property involved is a business and the repayment is via the profits of the business.
The big banks blow hot and cold with the pub sector, over our 20 + years in the sector lenders have come and gone as major funders for pubs. We keep abreast of the changes and always know which lender will be best for your application.
Currently the best lenders are up to 65% of the going concern value of the pub, exceptional pubs may get funding in excess of that, and often lenders could be lower if, for instance the profits are low.
A viable COVID recovery plan will be expected, to understand how the unit is trading now and that it's still possible to survive with the current reduced trade.
Buying a leasehold pub has never been easy, pub leases offer no security to lenders, lease premiums vary massively and there's potential for buyers to get their fingers burnt.
Fortunately Acorn.finance have been arranging pub finance for over 20 years and have an understanding of the lending possible, which lenders are in the market and the best options.
Talk to our pub finance experts about your leasehold pub and let's get you behind that bar!
For smaller requirements a business loan might be the answer to your pub finance needs.
From as little as £5,000 to as much as £350,000 a business loan will cover anything from a small piece of equipment to a full refurbishment.
Pub finance is not always about the building or the lease, you might need a full catering kitchen, business vehicles, air conditioning or even furniture.
Payment for all of these things can be spread using an asset finance product; hire purchase if you want to retain ownership at the end or a lease if you'd prefer to hand it back.
Because we all have the occasional cash flow blip, Acorn.finance have Merchant Cash Advances.
By funding against your future takings we can arrange this form of pub finance within a day or two.
We'll just need your last 3 months' statements and funding will normally be approved the same day, from £3,000 to £300,000.
Re-opening a closed pub represents a fantastic opportunity to the experienced publican. We've funded many closed pubs and pub company disposals over the years, and helped some great publicans to make a huge return on thier investment.
For larger refurbishments or property extensions an experienced Acorn.finance broker will be able to combine two or more forms of funding to achieve your business needs with finance at the best possible cost.
