With NHS advice* encouraging most people to get their eyes tested at least every two years, the market for opticians will continue to stay strong.
If you run an optometry business, it's safe to say you're certainly no stranger to a competitive marketplace.
From the large multiples moving into the market to smaller independents holding their own, if you’ve set your sights on success, you need to keep up with the pace of technology to provide a high quality service to customers.
The problem is that whether you’re looking to upgrade a Fundus camera, splurge on a field screener or invest in a topographer, this type of specialist equipment doesn’t come cheap. Parting with a large sum of money upfront can cause cash flow problems for any business, and bank loans can be notoriously tricky to land.
As you’re well aware: cash flow is king. So, instead, why not look to a finance firm you can trust, where you can purchase your equipment and start earning on it, before you’ve parted with a penny?
With Love Finance, opticians can ‘buy now, pay later’ and spread payments over a 3-to-5 year term. Not only does this mean smaller, more manageable monthly repayments to secure the equipment you need to attract and retain your customers, but you’ll be able to recover the VAT and tax over this term and it won’t affect your de minimis rule.
If high costs are hindering your optometry business, don’t panic. You’re sure to see your business goals come into focus with Love Finance on board.
Robust financial packages with flexible repayment. We offer a range of financing options, including flexible repayment plans, so you can ‘buy now, pay later’ and divide your repayments into manageable, monthly chunks that suit you.
Easier approval than you would get for a bank loan. With an 85% acceptance rate, it’s much easier to get approval for finance than for a bank loan – you don’t have to be a big business either.
Swift answers and no tedious paperwork. With our innovative self-service platform, businesses can find out if they’re eligible for finance in minutes, not weeks. You’ll have no lengthy meetings, long telephone waits or reams of paperwork to deal with either – we are living in the 21st century, after all.
No hidden fees. Our agreements are straight-to-the-point with no secret fees waiting to spring on you when you least expect it.
