What our clients are saying

"As an established medical device manufacturer we needed an innovative solution that would help us fund a significant export order. We felt that existing mainstream bank finance was too burdensome for us to handle administratively and we needed a solution quickly. Thanks to Breathe we were able to find the perfect fit for our business requirement in time, allowing us to service our existing and new customer needs on an ongoing basis" Nigel Verity, MD, Verity Medical Limited, Hants. Oct 2016

“ To keep pace with our expanding order book, we needed short term, portable funding against several of our key customer’s larger invoices. Breathe sourced a particularly attractive and innovative solution “ Nigel Snell, MD, Acorn Restorations Ltd, Portishead.

“As a modern forward thinking accountancy practice, we are constantly looking to enhance our service offering to our clients to help them become more successful. We were approached recently by our long-standing client who was experiencing a seasonal surge in demand for their product from one or two of its key customers which had the potential to impact on their all important working capital. Unable to secure funding from their bank on this occasion, we introduced them to Breathe, a modern, vibrant consultancy who provide a range of alternative and highly innovative business solutions to growing SME's. With their expertise, our client was successfully able to obtain funding on specific invoices, as and when they required without the need for a long term, unyielding agreement often stipulated by the more traditional lender. Our client has been delighted with the speed and uncomplicated way in which this kind of faciity has been set up and the ease in which future funding can now be obtained in line with the seasonal and cyclical nature of its business. Alternative finance is gaining huge momentum in the crucial SME lending market and disrupting old style business finance. The range and diversity of funding options has created a huge choice for small and medium sized businesses outside of their normal banking channels and the need for expert guidance to promote greater awareness is in our opinion essential. The team at Breathe were superb at minding that information gap and securing funding for our client." Christopher Nisbet, The Fish Partnership Accountants, High Wycombe Oct 2015.

Our project based business didn’t fit the traditional funding solution provided by our bank. We were subsequently introduced to the team at Breathe. Transactional invoice trading has allowed us to meet our cash flow requirements as and when they occur , in a way that we are always able to control.” Phil E, Director, Oxford based business.

"As a new start business, having  the right funding in place was vital as we started to attract several key customers. Breathe were superb in helping us to obtain the finance to take advantage of our growing presence in the market. Our boosted cashflow is now giving us the means to move forward at our desired pace. Despite our size, Breathe provided us with a level of attention and expertise that was second to none. We fully anticipate using them in the future as we look to invest in key equipment." Salvador Flores, Director, KMK International Ltd, Slough.

“ As a successfully established recruitment agency, we have been looking to develop a further side to the business and needed a smart, responsive funder who was prepared to finance our planned growth in this new area. Breathe worked tirelessly over a period of time to secure the most appropriate and cost effective solution" James Ward, MD, Marine Resources Recruitment Ltd, Southampton.

"Being a leading market player we need to ensure we maintain our competitive edge. In line with our growth strategy, we recently took the decision to develop our own manufacturing capability to fully complement our existing operation. This is to be a key milestone in our company's evolution. In order to acheive this, not only did we need to move our entire office premises and industrial  units, we also required a complete revision of our traditional funding arrangements to include working capital, a significant machinery purchase from overseas and key customer insurance coverage. We worked with Breathe on all these aspects that were critical to our continuing success. Overall several months, from our initial open discussions, to identifying and facilitating the most appropriate solutions, negotiating on our behalf and ensuring that the whole implementation passed seamlessly, their service has been first class. The huge range of availiable funders and choice of business finance options has changed dramatically and business owners like us are now acting more like consumers. Having this kind of uncomplicated, unassuming and transparent advice throughout the whole process has been invaluable" Stuart & Michael Climpson, Directors, Adco (UK) Ltd, Surrey Nov 2015.
