What To Consider Before Applying

If alternative business finance sounds attractive to you, we advise that you consider the following before committing to an application:

  • What type of finance will best suit your business needs?

  • Do you require funding for your business to survive or does your business want to develop, expand or consolidate?

  • Do you need cash flow or working capital, or both?

  • Speaking to somebody that understands your business and the business finance options that are available will help you to avoid a bad decision

The Pros And Cons Of Alternative Finance

The unwillingness of banks to offer quick and sensible lending propositions, means that alternative providers are becoming a more a popular route with business owners. However, be mindful of the following before proceeding:

  • The application process is fast and allows for quick access to finance

  •  Your application is more likely to be approved based on a commercial attitude to lending

  •  Payments terms can be fixed, variable, short-term, long term or linked to your sales

  •  The benefits should outweigh the cost

  •  Some products require limited forms of security

  • Rates of interest can sometimes be higher than a tradition form of bank lending

  • Some products and some lenders are still evolving as business models

  • Limited personal contact or customer services

  • Current regulation may prevent lending to unincorporated businesses

  • Appetite for lending can be unpredictable
