Some UK entrepreneurs are not fully aware of the different funding options available to them to support their long-term growth, a report has found.

According to a survey from the British Business Bank last year, high growth-potential firms sometimes struggle to obtain the right finance they need to grow to scale.

A poll forming part of the research found that;

  • More than a third, or 36 percent, went directly to their main bank, rather than looking into the many other options of external funding available.
  • Only two percent of the 932 small and medium-sized (SMEs) surveyed said they had looked into their finance options.

Also in the report, a poll by Ipsos MORI, featuring 2,070 SMEs, found that only 47 percent were aware of peer to peer (P2P) lending.

Here at Blue Bull Finance, we offer a range of services, including P2P funding, which is fast and flexible and can potentially support a range of purposes including working capital, new asset purchases, expansion, refurbishment or finance for one-off costs.

P2P funding is rapidly becoming a real alternative to traditional funding. Businesses can(subject to checks) borrow from £10,000 to £500,000 in unsecured loans. In addition most loan applications can be assessed quickly and once approved money can be into your account often within a matter of days.

Other sources of funding we offer that veer away from the traditional banking method include

  • All-Status Lending, suitable for those experiencing difficulties in accessing credit;
  • Invoice finance, which unlocks cash held within invoices, and
  • Credit/Debit card factoring, where repayment is an agreed percentage of your debit and credit card takings, and follows the performance of the business.

Here at Blue Bull Finance, we listen to what you want and when you want it, then we can provide you with the facts you need, in order to make the best decision for you and you business.
