Introducing CarefreeCredit

A simple payment option for your clients 

Here’s the concept:

CarefreeCredit is a simple, transparent finance option for you to offer your clients. It’s an online, paperless system available 24/7/365 with instant decisions.

Once approved, your clients get to spread the cost of their vet bills, your patients get treated and you receive funds within a matter of days.


Benefits of the service

  • The quality of pets lives is improved through the quick and hassle-free provision of finance for their care.
  • The stress of paying for unexpected vet bills is reduced for your clients.
  • You avoid discounting prices to clients who have trouble finding funds.
  • Reduce your debtors list and stop adding to it
  • Increase your revenue by increased treatment take up


How it can help you in your practice

  • Recoup retrospective debt/prevent potential future debt
    – Use Carefree Credit to clear existing debtors and replace in-house payment plans. If we say ‘no’ it could be a reason for you to do the same.
  • Reduce discounting/capping of bills
    – Use Carefree Credit to offer an affordable solution to pay for an unexpected bill rather than discounting or capping
  • Increased take-up of Gold Standard treatments
    – Use Carefree Credit to make the best possible treatment available to your patients by focussing on affordability not cost


The options available to clients

  • There are a number of options available for you to offer your clients
    – 0% APR, 4.9% APR & 9.9% APR all of which have a small subsidy charge which the practice pays (Vetsure members receive preferential rates)
    – 14.9% APR which has no charge to the practice
    – A rate for risk interest free or low APR option which caters for those clients with a less than perfect credit score and ensures that the acceptance rates are close to 90%. This has a higher subsidy which is based on the risk attached to the client

  • You need to have FCA authorisation and the cost for this is a one off £100 application then £145 per annum
  • Subsidy charge dependant on type of agreement
