The finance you need to grow your Dental practice

Talk to Rangewell – the business finance experts

Growing your dental practice will require investment. At Rangewell, we can use our contacts across the entire UK lending industry to provide the scale of funding you need.

There are limits on the number of patients that you can treat. You only have one pair of hands, and there are only so many hours in the working week - and the best dental work demands time.

You need to grow your practice. Taking on a junior partner, and bringing in support staff may mean extending your premises, and bringing in additional equipment. But how can you find the funding to make the necessary investment?

At Rangewell, we help dental professionals across the country find the answers they need.

A Commercial Mortgage

Expanding or relocating, premises will be a major cost, but buying with a Commercial Mortgage may cut costs compared with leasing. Commercial Mortgages work much like a residential mortgage, and can be used to help you buy a surgery or even an existing practice. Some lenders have a minimum loan value of £75,000 or more, but there is no set upper limit.

Commercial Property Finance is arranged on an individual basis. Rates and terms will be agreed based on your business plans.

Using a Goodwill Loan

It may not be simple to withdraw money from your practice without reducing your working capital and causing problems with cash flow.  A Goodwill Loan, also known as a Capital Withdrawal Loan or Cash Out, can let you access the value in your business without withdrawing funds from it.  It can bring you a sum comparable to your annual turnover, probably in excess of  £500,000, with repayment terms of up to 15 years.

Goodwill Loans recognise your professional status with very competitive rates.

Equipment

Asset Finance can be the most effective way get the equipment you need. Setting up a second chair will mean providing a long list of equipment for your junior. Asset Finance can spread the costs and covers a range of funding solutions:

Hire Purchase

Hire Purchase lets you acquire equipment straight away, with a single deposit payment. It then lets you spread the costs in regular monthly instalments over up to 5 years. At the end of this term, you own the asset outright, making it ideal for items which have a high cost and a relatively long life.

Leasing

Leasing works much like a rental agreement. It lets you use the equipment without having to buy it, with a payment each month to the finance company. For technical equipment which could go out of date, leasing can be ideal, as it can be easy to update when a better model becomes available. Leasing can also include maintenance agreements - meaning that keeping your equipment in perfect condition remains the responsibility of the lender - helping you avoid any unexpected costs.

Both new and used equipment can be funded with Asset Finance solutions.

Borrowing

A Business Loan could provide solutions for many types of growth plans, including providing funding for a junior partner while you grow your practice.

Secured Loans

Secured Loans can provide a high level of funding, with rates that can be as low as 2% above base rate, and ten or more years to repay. They are secured because they are supported by security, such as your existing premises or your home, that the lender can take and sell if you became unable to make repayments. This reduces the risk to lenders, and allows them to reduce the cost to you. They can have a part to play in expanding your business, and could even be sufficient to acquire smaller premises.

Unsecured Loans

Unsecured business loans are a straightforward way of borrowing, and operate much like a personal loan which can be used in any way you wish. They are suitable for smaller sums, up to £250,000, but often far less. The loan is repaid in monthly or quarterly instalments over an agreed term under 5 years. Decisions can be fast, inside a working day with some lenders, but you will need to provide a Personal Guarantee meaning that you will become personally liable for the debt if your business was unable to pay.

‘Jigsaw’ Finance

Your growth plans probably don’t fit a single solution. We can provide Jigsaw Funding - a bespoke package made up of the most appropriate type of business funding for each purpose. So a business might have Jigsaw Funding made up of Asset Funding for equipment, a Secured Loan or Commercial Mortgage to acquire premises, and a cashflow solution based on a Merchant Cash Advance, funded by your card takings. We have found that it can help people ready to make the most of their business, access a higher level of funding that could be provided by a single finance option - and reduce costs.
