Our Client’s Request

In such a volatile economic climate, securing funding for new projects and businesses can prove very challenging so when Aspire decided to start up a healthcare facility, they approached us for help with securing a commercial mortgage, as well as advice and guidance regarding how to achieve their plans financially.

How We Helped

As always, we took the time to understand the client’s aspirations, ensuring that all of the advice and guidance we provided them with was in line with their ambitions.

We supported Aspire throughout a range of stages within the start-up process.  Using our knowledge and extensive experience, we devised financial forecasts, profit and loss balance sheets and cash flow. Additionally, we wrote a realistic and intelligent business plan for the business.

Throughout the negotiations to obtain funding, we met with the lenders on the client’s behalf and our professionalism and knowledge meant that we were able to secure a better rate for the business. Subsequent to the client successfully starting up the business, we supported them through a further phase of growth, assisting with securing finances for new properties to expand.

I first met with Michelle just over 4 years ago when I had difficulties obtaining a commercial mortgage to fund the acquisition of premises for the purpose of a start-up healthcare facility.  Her intervention was fundamental in securing the funds which enabled me to start the venture which is now a real success story.  Michelle works with a team of professionals within Smith Cooper who between them have the knowledge, experience and contacts to make every step of a start-up venture as pain free as possible.

I was particularly impressed by the fact that they made the effort to understand the specifics of the healthcare business.  I really feel that they are always on the other end of the phone and if I have a query or seek advice I can talk to them or meet for a face to face meeting with a very short notice.  As a business owner I am happy to have Michelle’s and Smith Cooper’s expertise in accounting and business development at my disposal.
