What is Low Net Worth?

If your small business or sole-trader business has a low net worth, it will affect your credit score, which may then have an impact on your ability to raise funds for your car lease. In this case, you may need to submit a director’s guarantee. This guarantee assures lenders that your director will assume personal responsibility for the loan repayments, if necessary. It also enables you to access the funds you need for the car or van lease.
