I SHORT TERM FINANCE
Veer Capital will arrange short-term (under 12 months) for any business purpose. We will generally arrange unsecured up to Rs.5 Lac, secured upto Rs.25 Lac and provide bridging finance for up to Rs.10 crores (secured).
How does it work?
Let’s say that you are a frozen food supplier to a supermarket. Your refrigeration breaks down over the holiday period and you have a delivery to make in 2 days to the supermarket. While you have insurance, it will take at least 3 weeks for a claim to processed and in the meantime, you need to replace your ruined stock and fix the refrigeration. Veer Capital will arrange you funds quickly, either as a line of credit leasing facility, or as a short term loan. If it’s a short term loan, you repay us when your insurance claim is processed.
Or let’s say that your business has sold its commercial office property and the settlement date is 2 months away. You have 10 staff and the business needs to move to new rental accommodation. You need to pay a lease deposit, provide a Bank Guarantee for Rs.35 Lac to the Lessor and fit-out the new office. In this case, Veer Capital would fund the Bank Guarantee and arrange the other Rs.25 Lac to your business, secured against a second mortgage on your commercial property.
For bridging loans where the repayment is to come from sale of the security property and where your regular cash flow won’t support your borrowings, we can consider an interest payment holiday (retention) for the term of the loan. The interest retained is invested in the borrower’s name in the Mortgage Trust, with monthly withdrawals to meet interest payments.
II CASH FLOW ARRANGING
Veer Capital can arrange to businesses and professionals to smooth out cash flow through cash flow arranging, invoice discounting and factoring.
How does it work?
Let’s say you are a successful medical practitioner with a very busy practice, but Medicare takes 6 weeks to rebate your fees to your bank account. You have Rs.3 Lac outstanding at any one time and you just can’t get ahead enough to buy one diagnostic machine, which you desperately need. Veer Capital will arrange you a discounted value of your outstanding rebates.
Or maybe you’ve invoiced a number of high-quality "blue chip" customers, but they are very slow payers (sound familiar?) Veer Capital will "buy" (factor) those invoices from you at a discounted rate – up to 90% depending on the quality of the debtor. Factoring can also be "disclosed", where we factor an ongoing contract with your client and the monthly invoice states: "please pay Veer Capital". We then collect the value of the invoice from the client, take out our fees and return the rest to you.
III MORTGAGE FINANCE
Veer Capital has mortgage finance of all kinds. Mortgages can be commercial or residential and both can be used for business & investment purposes. As well, mortgage finance can be mixed with our other products to create a structured finance solution for any business requirement.
For commercial loans we can arrange from Rs.1 crore to Rs.200 crore. They can be used for investment, debt consolidation, bridging finance, refinancing and a wide range of business purposes. The term is up to 5 years, payments are usually interest-only and our serviceability criteria are more flexible than other arrangeers.
Residential loans can be used for the purchase or refinance of an owner-occupied or investment residential property, personal expenditure, debt consolidation, investment in shares or superannuation, or for business purposes.
Real Estate development finance, we can arrange a maximum of 100% of land & hard cost items to completion or 80% of the end-sale value. The interest rate varies according to LVR and risk assessment.
LVR Loan to value ratio is an important calculation to keep in perspective when purchasing property with finance. The way to calculate loan to value ratio is divide the loan amount by the actual property purchase price or valuation (whichever is the lower).
Rs.35 Lac loan ÷ Rs.50 Lac purchase price or valuation =0.7 x 100 = 70% LVR
