Credit commentary

The director Afhshad Mahmood 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. The Equifax score and grade, on which we base our assessment of risk, are based on the 2023 accounts. This is a temporary employment agency that has experienced a consistent turnover in the past two years. As per the management accounts, the EBITDA stands at £161K. The TNW is positive at £49M, with a net gearing of -179%, this is within our credit policy. The bank statements show reasonable affordability, and the accounts are in good standing, with no negative balances.

Inflation risk

As the majority of lending to the business is at a fixed rate, they will not be immediately affected by interest rate increases since the business’s industry provides enough margins and regular work in a specialist niche market. The directors do not expect to draw money from the business as the funds will be used for hiring new staff and property refurbishment.


Business keeps the raised amount even if target is not met.
