Business lending: September Deals of the Month

Our September Deals of the Month range from a £15,800 loan to support a growing candle’s business moving to a new premise, to a £3.5 million loan to transform a hotel into a boutique establishment.

Each month, we profile five of the key SMEs banking deals supported by RBS and NatWest business banking and commercial banking teams around the UK.

PKF Cooper Parry

Location

East Midlands

Amount lent

£1 million financial package from NatWest
 

Why

The investment has facilitated PKF Cooper Parry’s purchase and refurbishment of a 25,000 square-foot office space based near East Midlands Airport. The new premises enabled the merger of the accountancy and business advisory firm’s three city centre offices into one, bringing a huge benefit to clients, business and people. Easy access to East Midlands Airport has also improved PKF Copper Parry’s access to a growing national and international client base.
