New Finance Packages Available Through Trade Help


We’re delighted to announce the launch of a new partnership with Trade Help, an industry leader established in 2014 to champion installers in the UK.  

Ideal Finance Portal

We have created a new Ideal Finance Portal that ensures that you can quickly and easily provide the information your customer needs and you will be able to advertise the availability of finance to your customers who may need that extra help to spread the cost of their boiler installations. 

This new service will be managed online - all you need to do is sign up/register on the new portal.  The portal will be live following the introductory sessions in the coming weeks. 

You do not need a consumer credit licence to be part of this scheme.

Finance Packages

Finance options that will be available for you to offer your customers:

  • 12-month interest free credit: 4% subsidy to the lender
  • 24-month interest free credit: 6.9% subsidy to the lender
  • 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10-year interest bearing finance at 9.9% APR to customer (no subsidy)

Introductory Sessions

Come and find out more at one of our introductory sessions, where you’ll hear more about the partnership, details of the finance packages and speak to Trade Help directly. These sessions will be breakfast briefings and will close by lunchtime, with additional time at the end if you want to register or find out more specifically for your own business.  Places are limited so make sure you sign up as soon as you can!
