The problems with commercial finance

The bank doesn’t like them!

Small businesses are still getting the raw end of the deal when it comes to banking and lending.  The big banks are constantly advertising how great they are for small business but the reality is often very different.


We all know that situation, just when we think the loan is sorted the bank come back for more information and paperwork and it all takes another few weeks to get a decision.

The best rate

With most business owners going only to their own bank for a loan quote there’s very little competition. How will they know the terms they offer are the best out there or could they have got approved instead of rejected?

We have built up a great relationship with the team at Acorn, and they have made all our business purchases very straightforward.

The mistakes clients make…

Only approaching one bank

Almost two-thirds of business owners begin and end their search for funding with their own bank.  That means they are missing out on potentially the right lender from the market of around three-hundred lenders and institutions.

With more competition comes better decisions.

Asking for too little or too much

Few clients understand the full implications of interest being withheld for a bridging loan or the costs involved in buying a business.  By partnering with a finance expert your business will grow more smoothly as your clients will be funded faster.

Not being fully prepared!

Lenders want to know who they are lending to, why and how they will get their money back.  Not having up to date accounts, directors on board or basic information available will bring their application to a rapid halt.

Not checking your credit file!

Having bad credit is not the end of the line when it comes to applying for a loan for your business – but not disclosing it can be a major problem.

Check all directors credit before applying and, if there’s something wrong, forget your bank, start working with us immediately.

Lacking a business plan!

What’s the money for? What difference will borrowing make to your business?

Without a plan the funder is not going to understand why they are lending you the money or when to expect it back!

Not checking the terms!

A business loan can be a major commitment, understand what you are signing and if in doubt get an expert to explain it to you.

Expecting the lender to shoulder all the risk!

If you’ve got collateral but don’t want to risk it for your business then why should the lender take a risk on you?

If you don’t have the confidence to back your business then why should they?
