The mainstream business finance lenders are well known and wholly accessible. Highstreet lenders, with the odd exception, have not returned from pre-credit crisis levels of funding availability.
Whilst they are the first and best choice for many, the process, conditions, level of application depth and post loan agreement monitoring can be difficult.
Business loans and business finance should always start with your companies’ main bankers – they know you well and have all your trading history at their fingertips. Expect full application processes, to invest time and energy and usually a basket of securities.
There has, however, been an explosion in other sources of fast, flexible and cheap business finance options.
Below are some of our favourites. Our team will help you access the correct funding for your business no matter your circumstances.
A revolving credit facility that lets businesses unlock cash tied up in unpaid invoices, stock and/or work in progress (WIP). It works very much like an overdraft; once the lender has given the business a limit, they can draw down funds and make repayments as often as they like in a given month. Businesses only pay for what they use; if their balance stays at £0 throughout a month, that period won’t cost a thing.
An unsecured business loan is designed to help small businesses fund their growth plans. This allows businesses to expand their workforce, fund new projects or spread the cost of new equipment.
