Would a cash injection help you business take that next step, to grow and thrive? Access to finance is one of the key factors in the success of any business.

For every growing business there’s a finance option out there to match your ambition and help to understand what external finance is, what options are available and how they could help your business. You just need to know who to ask and where to look.

Once you understand how much finance you need our advisers can help you learn about the options available for you. A bank loan is not the only way that you can raise money to fund your business. For some businesses, particularly new riskier ventures, equity investment – raising capital through the sale of shares in a business – may be most suitable. For equity finance, there are a growing number of business angels prepared to back new businesses. The government provides generous tax relief to investors who want to support new businesses.

For less risky types of businesses, debt finance may be more appropriate. If you are struggling to obtain a loan to start a new business, you may wish to consider applying for a start-up loan and we can help with that. For alternatives to the high street banks for both equity and debt finance you could consider raising funding through alternative finance providers such as peer-to-peer lenders or crowd funding platforms.
