Funding Options

Funding Options helps firms up and down the country to access business loans and to manage their cashflow. We work directly with businesses as well as their trusted advisors, such as accountants.

Our mission is to make business finance easy. We love helping firms from around the UK, as well as working with their most trusted advisors such as accountants, finance professionals and trade federations. Our award-winning service scans the market to find the options that best suit your needs. It takes minutes, there's no obligation and it's free to use.

We are a credit broker, meaning that we do not provide loans ourselves, rather we find you loans from suitable providers.
