As the coronavirus crisis deepens, I want to take a few moments to give you an update on how Fleximize is working to support you, your business, and the wider SME community at this difficult time.
But first, our thoughts are with anyone that has been impacted by the virus directly, especially those who are experiencing symptoms, have tested positive, or know someone who has. I can only imagine what you’re going through, and we’d all like to wish you/your loved ones a full and speedy recovery.
Like me, you've probably been flooded with business continuity plans, and messages from suppliers and concerned customers, so I’ll keep this brief. Fleximize very much remains open for business and, as always, is firmly focused on supporting you and your company through this.
We’re still here to support you
Our mission, since we started, has been to provide support to small businesses where they need it most – cashflow. And during these times of economic uncertainty, keeping your cashflow as healthy as possible is even more crucial. So, we’re not deviating from our mission – we’re here to provide you with quick, flexible capital to support your cashflow if you need it.
I’m delighted to announce that we’ve been approved by The British Business Bank as an accredited CBILS lender. We’re currently adapting our process and training our team to ensure that you get the funding you need as quickly and efficiently as possible, but for the meantime, you can register your interest in a CBILS loan and our team will be in touch as soon as possible to proceed with your application.
We've also launched the Essential Sector Growth Loan, designed to give priority access to finance for essential sector businesses at favourable rates, with no additional fees and all the flexible features of our standard business loan.
Businesses need clarityIrrespective of what happens in Westminster, we can all agree that businesses need certainty. With a rapidly changing situation like this, it’s difficult for the Government to provide that, so we (the Government, banks, alternative lenders like Fleximize) have to, and already are, working together to minimise the impact on your business as much as we can.
Helping you make decisions
It’s our responsibility as business owners to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our employees, customers, and suppliers, and make the right decisions at the right time. We’re working around the clock with industry bodies, government associations, and financial institutions, and we’ve set up a Coronavirus Content Hub to provide you with the information and resources you need to make those decisions.
Flexibility is in our name
Like many businesses, we’re now working from our continuity plan. The majority of our team are working remotely, and we have the technology and infrastructure in place to ensure that we can still provide funding in days, not weeks. You may hear a few dogs barking in the background, but our relationship managers are still here to support you, and we’re implementing a number of measures to support our customers who are experiencing financial problems as a result of the outbreak.
Stay safe. All the best,
