Goodwill Loans for Vets
Releasing the value held within your practice
As a vet, your practice probably generates a great deal of revenue. But it can be difficult to enjoy the benefits of all the hard work you put in
Your veterinary practice probably creates a great deal of wealth - but it’s locked away from you by the tax rules and the need to maintain your working capital. You can’t simply dip into the wealth you have created without causing problems for yourself or your practice.
But there is a way to enjoy the results of your hard work - with a Goodwill Loan, or Cash Out. It can help you enjoy the wealth you have created, but leave the funds in your business bank account untouched.
What is a Goodwill Loan for vets?
A Goodwill - or Capital Withdrawal - Loan can let you access the value in your veterinary practice without withdrawing funds from it.
It works by letting you use the goodwill built up in the practice as the security for a loan.
A Goodwill Loan can bring you a sum comparable to your annual turnover, typically between £50,000 and £500,000, with repayment terms of up to 15 years.
It’s easy and fast to arrange. The lender will simply need to review your accounts for the last few years to make a decision. Interest rates will be agreed when the loan is taken out and, although they will be variable, are likely to remain significantly more favourable than with other types of lending.

What can you do with a Goodwill Loan?
There are a few limits on what you can do with your loan - you can’t use it to pay off your mortgage on your main home - but you can:
- Buy property for investment
- Buying a second home
- Paying for an education
- Buying another business
- Buying additional premises for your veterinary practice
- Use it for retirement planning or investments
“I’m not ready to retire yet, but I wanted to enjoy some of the better things in life now, and make sure I had a big enough pot when I am ready. My accountant explained that I could not just withdraw funds from the business, but that I might be able to arrange a Goodwill Loan. I spoke to the veterinary funding experts at Rangewell who showed me the possibilities.
I took out a loan for £150,000. It was enough to pay for a holiday or two, and get my investment portfolio off to a good start.”
