Being a TrustMark Registered Business isn’t just about displaying a logo or wearing a badge; it’s much more than that. You’re part of the only Government Endorsed Quality Scheme in the UK and everything that means in terms of quality, assurance and peace of mind for your customers. Being a TrustMark Registered Business also brings a wealth of other benefits:

Ability To Offer Payment Options

As a Registered Business, you can offer a range of flexible payment options through your Business Portal. This includes the ability to take debit and credit card payments and to offer finance packages for specific jobs between the value of £500 and £25,000, with a deposit of 25% or less.

TrustMark has partnered with BNP Paribas Personal Finance to offer the financial packages, providing smaller businesses with the opportunity to offer their customers the choice of no-fuss finance. Funds are paid to you once your customer has confirmed satisfactory receipt of the goods and/or services, taking the risk out of larger transactions. The interest rate is competitive at 9.9% APR with payment terms of up to 10 years.

There is no requirement to carry an FCA credit licence and you will receive training and supporting materials to assist with quote-building and a full understanding of the finance and payment process.

As a Registered Business, you can have peace of mind that you’re able to supply the materials and complete the job, knowing the funds for the job are available through the Escrow account.
