3. Our Services

We offer the following services:

Arranging finance with a funder for you or your customer after you have agreed the cost of sale price. We have in excess of 50 panel members. We recognise it is important for customers to be able to shop around for credit and alternative sources of credit.

Quotations. We will quote indicative figures based on our funders’ cost of funds, and your target. We will conduct a fact find so that we are able to tailor the most suitable quotation to meet you or your customer’s demands and needs. The funder has the right to change or decline these quotes on receipt of the full proposal. Quotations are valid for 30 days from the date of issue unless otherwise specified. Figures shown are subject to price changes, fluctuations in interest rates or changes in Government legislation. These are outside of our control. The prices notified to your customer by us are broken down to include VAT where appropriate. Finance is subject to status and to persons over 18 years of age only. Underwriting guarantees/indemnities may be required.

If you or your customer for any reason fails to be cleared for finance we may discuss this with you or them as appropriate prior to applying for funding with a different company. An additional application will mean an additional footprint on the credit file. We will never submit proposals which we believe have a high probability of rejection by the funders concerned.

Please note: any Individual, Sole Trader or Partnership with less than 4 Partners has a cooling off period of 14 days after signing the finance agreement. It is suggested that the vehicle subject to such a finance agreement is not delivered prior to the expiry of this cooling off period.

4. Our Remuneration

Our remuneration is an introductory payment payable by the funder. We do not take credit for payments due until the funding has been paid out. A customer is entitled, at any time, to request information regarding any payment which has been received as a result of placing their finance with a funder. If through exceptional circumstances Creative Funding Solutions Limited or any of its Directors or other customers has a material interest in business you or your customer asks to be transacted for you, we will make all parties aware of the conflict of interest and we will obtain consent before proceeding with any instructions.

5. Treating Customers Fairly

We always aim to treat people fairly. This means that we will always endeavour to

  • Conduct our business with due skill, care and integrity
  • Never put ourselves in a position where our primary duty is compromised
  • Deal with any complaint sympathetically and independently of the colleague to whom the complaint is directed
  • Be transparent in the matter of our remuneration
  • Respect confidentiality
