Amicus Commercial Finance crafts invoice discounting deal for Hiver Beers
Hiver Beers is a growing, award winning niche brewery based near Tower Bridge in London. The team has a passion for traditional British craft beers and uses honey as a key ingredient, rather than an addition for flavouring. The business prides itself in sourcing raw honey from independent urban beekeepers and donates 10% of its profits to pollinator charities.
Explaining the vital role that Amicus Commercial Finance plays in providing funding for growth, Hannah Rhodes, managing director of Hiver Beers Ltd, said:
“We are taking on more and more national account business. However, this has meant having to accept extended payment terms from our larger customers, while still needing to pay our staff, suppliers and rent on time.
“Without the help of Amicus Commercial Finance, we genuinely wouldn’t have been able to take on these new contracts from the nationals. We clicked with the team as soon as we met them. They were very relaxed and obviously wanted to create the right solution for us. We have a really easy working relationship and know that we can pick up the phone at any time and sort out any issues quickly.
“Their approach to technology was also far more innovative than other invoice discounting providers. We don’t have a great deal in the way of internal administrative resource. So the fact that the Amicus app connects directly to our Sage system means that we face none of the day-to-day admin typically associated with a facility such as this. As an MD, I face a million and one challenges. Thanks to Amicus Commercial Finance, funding isn’t one of them.”
