Our types of loan

Unsecured Loans

Loans up to

Unsecured loans up to £500,000

Unsecured loans allow you to borrow without giving security on any business assets, such as property or equipment. They’re a quick and easy way to get an affordable cash injection for your business.

A personal guarantee will be required, which means the directors will be required to pay back the loan if the business is unable to. We do this to protect the investors who lend to you.

If you’ve been trading for 2 years or more, you could get an unsecured loan from £5,000 to £500,000 for almost any purpose, including working capital and asset finance.

Secured Loans

Loans up to
£1 million

Secured loans up to £1 million

Secured loans can help you borrow more for your business as you can use business assets as collateral. If your business can’t pay back the loan in full, the proceeds from the sale of assets can be used to pay off the outstanding amount. You could get a secured loan up to £1 million, so it’s a great option for small business finance if you want to borrow a large amount.

There are different assets you can use depending on the value and purpose of your loan:

  • Typically secured against all assets of the business
  • Property and large assets can also be used as security
  • May also require a personal guarantee
