Interest Free Credit over 12 months is not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. This means that there are far fewer rules around advertising than there are for regulated finance.
It also means that you yourself can offer this finance (with TradeHelp just assisting you as a broker), as you do not need to be authorised by the Financial Conduct authority to offer interest free finance repayable over 12 months (or less).
However, it is still extremely important to ensure that any advertising is clear, accurate and not misleading.

It is beneficial to make the customer aware of how the finance is accessed for them, so you may also wish to include information such as:
