Building strong partnerships with accountants

Accountants are key influencers when it comes to the management of their clients’ finances. They have a huge impact on SME clients and how funding solutions can contribute to commercial business success.

We work with fantastic accountants throughout the South West and across the UK, providing their SME clients with our invoice finance services to release cash tied up in outstanding invoices and facilitate growth.

We want to make the life of the accountants we work with easier, which is why we launched our approval app earlier this year in order to remove the often lengthy and complex application processes that are associated with commercial finance funding.

We caught up with a few of the accountants we partner with and here’s what they said about working with Optimum Finance:

SFB Group managing director Paul Carvell said:

“Optimum Finance is great to work with, I found the team really professional and I would recommend them to anyone.”

Brad Whittock, managing director at Whittock Consulting, said:

“I have worked closely with Optimum Finance on a number of clients now and in every instance I have been impressed with their speed and level of commerciality.

“Unlike some of the larger financial institutions, having the ability to work directly with the directors and decision-makers is refreshing and it means that they take the time to fully understand the particular issues and come up with a tailored cash flow solution.

“Their systems are very streamlined and clients also enjoy forging relationships with the Optimum Finance team, meaning that any issues around non-payment or slow payment of debtors are quickly resolved. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any SME needing invoice finance.”

Commenting on the partnerships, Optimum Finance’s CEO, Richard Pepler:

“The relationships we build with accountants are hugely valuable as they’re key to the development and growth of the SMEs we work with across the South West and beyond.

“We’re always looking to form new relationships with accountants so we can work together and grow small businesses to their full potential.”
