Unsecured Business Finance

Unsecured Business Finance

by 2020finance
There are now over 40 lenders willing to lend unsecured small business loans in the UK. Whilst the majority of these will require a personal guarantee (PG) from directors, some do not. The difficulty being they all have different criteria, different application processes and different sectors they prefer lending to. A complex and time consuming task for business owners. We can introduce experts to save you time by guiding you through these processes. The experts work to understand the business and financial requirements of the applicant, introducing only those lenders who can meet those needs.
Benefits of arranging Unsecured Business Finance:
Solutions we introduce:
  • Whilst lenders like to see 1 years’ worth of trading, some lenders can offer unsecured loans to start ups
  • Borrowers do not always need to be homeowners
  • Options may be available to those with an adverse credit history.
  • Funds can be made available within a matter of hours
  • Personal loans can be used by sole traders and directors to put money into their firm.

*Subject to status

  • Unsecured business loans – Lenders do not take a legal charge over any specific asset. The lender does, however, seek a personal guarantee from the borrower*
  • Merchant Cash Advance – Allows you to raise finance based on your credit card turnover. Your proven average monthly turnover is typically the amount you can receive a merchant advance loan for.

*In the event of default the lender would seek to recover outstanding liability from the guarantor
