FAQs

We offer a wide range of funding options for small and medium-sized businesses, including business loans, asset finance, invoice finance, and merchant cash advances.

The amount of funding you can receive depends on several factors, including your business’s financials, creditworthiness, and the type of funding you are seeking. Some types of funding are based on your accounts receivable and can provide funding based on a percentage of the value of those invoices. Other types of funding, such as term loans, may have specific minimum and maximum amounts.

We can offer loans ranging from £5,000 up to £1m.

The loan term can vary depending on the type of funding you choose. We offer flexible loan terms typically ranging from 1 month up to 5 years but if you’re looking for something longer we still may be able to help.

We understand the importance of timely funding for your business needs, so once we have the necessary information and documents, we will work as quickly as possible to find the best funding options available.

The specific documents required for funding will vary depending on the lender and the type of funding you are seeking.

Our team will work with you to determine which documents are needed for your specific funding needs.

While having good credit can certainly improve your chances of receiving funding, it is not always necessary. There are lenders who specialise in working with businesses with less-than-perfect credit.
