Our access to finance markets and position as part of the Siemens Group combine to makes us a competitive, flexible and collaborative finance partner with which to develop your pharmaceutical business for the long term.
An Overview of our process
We advise on the most appropriate form of funding and provide finance options. We then confirm pricing once the equipment has been specified by you and capital price has been confirmed.
In order to ensure you have the required cash flow to afford the payments, we typically require accounts for the last 3 years and supporting documents about the nature of your business.
Once a credit facility has been approved, you are then required to sign and return the documentation to us. For leases, a purchase order is then placed for the equipment and it is delivered or installed by the supplier. For loans, the funds are transferred directly to your bank account.
Once the equipment is installed and on receipt of the certificate of acceptance from you confirming that the equipment is in working order, we activate the lease and pay the supplier.
