Credit commentary:
The director Nergis Atail is providing a personal guarantee, which means should the business fail and have insufficient assets within the business to repay the loan, we can look to the guarantor(s) to repay any shortfall on repayment. There have been no CCJs for the business or director. Whilst the director is not a homeowner which is an exception stated in our credit policy. The mitigants are the company's strong establishment, evidenced by a substantial TNW and EBIDTA. With a DSC ratio exceeding 1, it is evident that the company has the financial capacity to meet the loan requirements. Our risk assessment relies on the Equifax score and grade, from the March 2023 filed accounts. The latest financial accounts show a pre-tax profit of £100,987 and a net equity of £180,252. The bank statements confirm reasonable affordability, and the accounts consistently maintain a positive balance.

Inflation risk:
The company has experienced a minor impact from increased costs, but they have recently implemented cost-cutting measures, improving their overall gross margin. Given that the majority of their loans are at a fixed rate, the business is not immediately susceptible to interest rate hikes. While the company anticipates a potential sales decline due to inflationary pressures, they believe it will be manageable and not on a scale that would affect its sustainability.
