Who can access AMC funding?

Whether you are a sole trader, partnership, limited company or trust, providing you are an agricultural, horticultural, equine or other commercial land-based business you can access AMC’s competitive funding.

All lending must be for business purposes only and will be provided on a secured loan basis. It can be used to support a number of different opportunities, including:

  • Land purchase
  • New equipment or machinery
  • Building new or improving current structures
  • Diversification plans
  • New stock
  • Buying a farm tenancy
  • Refinancing current debt
  • Working capital support
  • Paying out a business/family partner to gain sole control

Types of loan available through AMC

AMC’s tailored finance is structured within two core products.

  • Long-term borrowing – allowing you to borrow from £25,001 upwards through a long-term standard-loan. Repayment terms are available between five and 30 years, with interest rates that can be variable or fixed*.
  • Flexible short-term loans – giving you loans from £30,000+ that can be spread over five years and the opportunity to make flexible monthly repayments to match the ebbs and flows of your cash flow throughout the year.

* There is always a possibility that interest rates may go down leaving a fixed rate loan at a higher level compared to a variable rate loan. However, if interest rates rise, a fixed rate loan will remain at the same rate.
