Why You Might Benefit From a Business Loan

Since 2017, the value of business loans has increased by an average of 3% every year, reaching a value of £496 billion in 2022 and expected to rise to £513 billion in 2023. However, businesses in the UK face multiple difficulties, including economic and inflationary pressures, the after effects of COVID-19 and the impact of Brexit.

What is a Business Loan?

Business loans are a type of borrowing designed for commercial organisations rather than individuals that you usually pay back on a monthly basis. With a business loan you could borrow between £1,000 and £15 million. Pay the loan back over one month to 25 years. If a business wants to expand, it will need to invest. A business loan is one way of financing that investment. Repayment terms vary and depend on the amount borrowed. 

What Can Business Loans Help With?

There are several reasons why a business may seek both secured and unsecured loans. These include: 

  1. Business expansion – Purchasing new equipment, purchasing stock, expanding your team to respond to market demand, increase in sales and your bottom line.
  2. Premises purchase – this could be because your business is expanding, and to meet that demand, you need bigger premises or a high street presence. It could also be to store newly acquired additional inventory.
  3. Funding solutions even when adverse credit / CCJs exist.
  4. Asset finance for vehicles, computers / IT equipment and all types of machinery.
  5. You’re looking for competitive interest rates and flexible loan terms.
