The resolutions you shouldn't have broken yet...

 

 

 

Training & Education

The NACFB is committed to providing Training and Education for Commercial Finance Brokers and over the years has developed a range of training days to cover all aspects of Commercial Finance. This has included Asset Finance, Factoring and Invoice Discounting, Marketing and Fraud training to name just a few. In addition our CPD programme continues and recording is now available on line.

We offer a new qualification to replace the Certificate in Commercial Mortgages, which has been written in conjunction with all the High Street banks. The Certificate in Business Banking and Conduct (CertBB&C) is the standard qualification for all our members and is run by The London Institute of Banking & Finance.

 

Commercial Finance Expo

The Commercial Finance Expo is the only show in the UK dedicated to the business finance community. Representatives from funders across the business finance arena will be exhibiting. This year the NACFB conference will be held during the Expo, welcoming speakers who can offer a keen insight into different parts of the industry..

 

findSMEfinance

FindSMEfinance lists sources of commercial finance for small businesses, including leasing and hire purchase arrangements, commercial mortgages, and invoice discounting and factoring. It will allow you to search by region or postcode, and will take you directly to the brokers who are best placed to help you find the funding you need.

Why become a member?

Five reasons why you should become a member:

  1. We'll give you access to and information about more than 140 lenders, help you with your FCA compliance questions, and open up a wide range of enhanced commission structures and discounted member service products such as professional indemnity insurance.
  2. We put on a full programme of free-to-attend events each year
  3. The findsmefinance.co.uk website is an optional free-of-charge lead generation service generating about £1 million in leads every day.
  4. The NACFB logo shows small businesses that you follow our code of conduct, giving them an extra incentive to give their business to you.
  5. Finally, you get the chance to vote on the structure of the Association and therefore to make your voice heard.

 

What's involved?

Step 7 of this form explains what we need from you to make you a member. In short, there are various licences and permissions you need to hold, and you need to demonstrate that the business you've done and the bank account you hold are all properly managed. If you fill in this seven-page form, we will work with you to clarify exactly what we can and can't accept before granting you full membership.

How much will it cost?

The membership cost in 2017 starts at £525 for a single broker, plus £210 for each additional RI. There may be additional costs and they may vary in the future.

NACFB Compliance Services takes all the hassle out of FCA compliance. It forms an optional part of membership and comes with its own (heavily discounted) cost for members. To get an exact figure of what membership will cost you, drop us an e-mail (admin@nacfb.org.uk) or phone us (020 7101 0359) and explain the services you want and how many people work with you giving advice and signing deals. Our fees are paid annually - you're welcome to set up a direct debit with us if you'd prefer not to pay up front.
