Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) (their registration number is 313486). Permitted activities include advising on and arranging
general insurance contracts as an intermediary and acting as a credit broker not a lender.

Unless we consider it to be inappropriate given your personal circumstances, our approach is to introduce you first to the lender
associated with the vehicle manufacturer who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account
interest rates, residual valuations (where applicable) and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we
then seek to introduce you to other lenders on our panel. The lender we introduce you to and available rates will depend upon a
number of factors including: the vehicle, your personal circumstances and the likelihood of a lender to accept an application based
on information provided.
Lenders may pay a commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you
borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions; some lenders may also provide preferential rates
to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts
they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender
We do not charge you a fee for our services. Whichever lender we introduce you to, we will typically receive commission from them
based on either a fixed fee or a fixed percentage of the amount you borrow. If you would like to know the amount of any
remuneration we have received from the finance provider, please ask us.
