Business finance frequently asked questions
I've been turned down for finance, can I get funding from you?
Because Acorn.finance are a broker we have access to more than 300 lending partners. Depending on the type of business you're in there will be lots of different options for us to look at.
Of course we can't guarantee to fund everyone but we'll do our best, and if it's going to be "no" we'll be sure to tell you as quickly as possible and work with you to find an alternative plan to achieve your goals.
I don't own my own house, can I get business finance?
Some lenders will always want the background security of your property or a guarantee. But if that's not an option talk to your Acorn.finance advisor, there are many lenders who won't insist on this and we'll be able to arrange another form of funding.

Check out our Business Sector pages, there you'll be able to look at the products we typically use for businesses just like yours. From Commercial mortgages and business loans to Merchant Cash Advances and Asset finance. We'll help you through the maze of terms and products to grow your business.
What if my bank doesn't offer a Bounce Back Loan?
There are quite a few business bank account operators who are not offering Bounce Back Loans, such as Nationwide and The Acorn Account (not affiliated to us).
