Strict code of practice

As members of the NACFB since 1997, our ethos has always been to adhere to their Code of Practice in every aspect of our business.

The NACFB has operated an industry recognised Code of Practice since 1992 which endorses best practice in the industry. All NACFB brokers agree to abide by the Code of Practice which ensures that you have the guarantee that will always operate professionally and in your best interest.


Founded in 1997 by father and son team Tom and Paul Thompson, Acorn Finance have long been one of the leading finance brokers in the small business and property sectors.

We’re a multi-award winning team with 7 “best UK broker” awards in the last 6 years and have been featured on the BBC Inside Out programme to show best practice in the commercial lending sector.

Acorn’s specialist knowledge of small businesses marked us out as the “go to” broker for any trading business but especially those in the hospitality sector which resulted in Acorn Commercial Finance becoming the only finance provider asked to join the inaugural BIIAB (British Institute of Innkeeping Advisory Board).

We work harder to find the funding your customers need

Acorn.Finance (Acorn Commercial Finance previously) have been funding commercial and investment property since 1997.

As a small business just like you, the team understands the needs and time pressures of the buy to let property investor, developer or business owner.

Our mission is to give every business owner, property investor or developer access to the finance they need to thrive and grow.

In a broad and fragmented market with more lending sources than ever,  it is no longer an option to rely on the products of just one lender for the life of a business, lenders are many and varied.  Our role is to help you find the very best funding package to fill your needs, and to have the funding available to you, just when you need it.  To do that we work across the whole of the finance market, from the high street banks and challenger banks through to crowdfunding providers (including our own) and sometimes private equity and businesses angel investors.

Whether you are growing your business or investment portfolio or just starting out then finance is of vital importance and getting the best deal can easily be the difference between growing or not or even failure.  Our experts take time to understand your needs and aims in both the long and short term before recommending you a product which we believe is the best one to achieve your aims. By taking that time to understand your needs we also work more closely with our lenders than most brokers, that means we have a market leading level of success with more applications going through to a successful completion and more of our clients go on to long-term success.
