    Arranging business loans for small business is our bread and butter. 

    Even with the advances in technology small businesses still get a raw deal from the big banks - they ask for more and more information and then, at the last minute they decline the application.

    Business loan frequently asked questions

    I have bad credit - can I still get a small business loan?

    As is always the case, it's going to depend on how bad your credit report is, so - first port of call is to check your report (not score) with each of the three main agencies;

    • Experian
    • Equifax
    • Credit Karma

    We advise you check all three as sometimes their records will be different.

    Once you have that, discuss the circumstances around your adverse with your advisor, there are many business finance lenders who will be flexible around some adverse credit in your past and still approve you for a business loan.

    We have many different lenders and types of business loan, so a rejection from one does not mean you can't get finance at all.

    How long do I need to be trading before I can get a business loan?

    Because Acorn.finance work with the Start Up Loans Company amongst our many other lenders, you'll have funding availability from the very earliest days of your business journey.

    Business loan lenders have different requirements around what information they need and how long you need to have been trading to be eligible for a loan.

    Check with your advisor and we'll get the right loan for you.
