What is a deferred consideration surety?

The sale and purchase value of an SME is the consideration. An element of the total consideration is deferred and paid at a point in the future.

The use of deferred consideration as a significant element of the overall capital requirements in an SME transition brings benefits to all parties. Agreed payments are secured according to contract terms and conditions.

Why are payments deferred?

Deferred payments offer many advantages to the business and the exiting owner.

It keeps more equity in the business and allows both parties to settle the agreement faster. Exiting owners and new business owners have complete visibility and security over their finances.

What’s the difference between a surety and a guarantee?

Surety and guarantee are often interchangeable terms. For this agreement, it means that we assume primary liability in the event of a default payment.

The obligee (exiting owner) doesn’t have to pursue a claim against the principal (employee-owned business). We (the surety) just issue the payment.

All of this is subject to the contract terms and conditions.

How is Valloop Surety so cost-effective?

Valloop Surety removes the need for insurance fees and avoids the added necessity for the business to secure third-party finance to pay a single upfront payment to the exiting owner.
