Flexible Borrowing for your Business

Regardless of the type of business you operate, you may be able to get a loan for your business and choose between a fixed and a flexible system of borrowing.

This flexible business loan will provide financing for a variety of business needs including working capital, acquisition of assets or plans for expansion of business.

What is a Business Loan?

A business loan is a kind of funding you can use to meet your growing business’ pressing needs. If you need capital to grow your current business, purchase equipment or improve efficiency, look no further than a business loan from Fast Forward Finance.

Get funding at competitive interest rates, borrow money without any of the assets being guaranteed, and gain access to credit that can be repaid over a fixed term.

Different Types of Business Loans we Offer

Short-Term Business Loans

Looking for funding for your business? Finding the capital you need isn’t always easy, particularly if you have bad credit. But for any small company, access to finance is crucial, and short-term business loans can be a perfect way to get the much-needed cash infusion. At Fast Forward Finance, we can secure short-term loans for qualified businesses in the right circumstances. Get in touch with us to find out more.

Cash-flow Business Loans

Cash flow loans will allow business owners to obtain a completely upfront loaned sum of money, paying it back with interest in arranged monthly repayments over a pre-agreed time period.

Because such loans are short-term, the repayment period will usually be set between 1-3 years, but the amount lent will be a factor in that. A major advantage of a cash-flow business loan is that it is easy to obtain as long as every lender criterion can be met.

Tax Business Loans

Whatever type of business you operate, a business tax loan may be obtainable to help you meet your tax responsibilities. There are plenty of flexible loans available which will allow you to pay your tax bill and repay over fixed monthly or quarterly payments ranging from 6 to 12 months.

At Fast Forward Finance, we may be able to secure tax business loans designed to meet your repayment capabilities by working with a variety of lenders that specialise in business finance.

VAT Business Loans

No matter what type of business system you operate, as long your business makes Vatable sales in excess of £XXX a year, you will have to register your business for VAT. It is important to be able to handle these payments, without jeopardising your cash flow so that your business is not interrupted. A VAT loan can come in handy here. Get in touch to compare rates.

Equipment Business Loans

Buying new equipment is essential in many situations to ensure that your business is able to grow and make a profit. Unfortunately, equipment can be a pretty expensive investment that many companies struggle to pay for up front.

There are certain forms of financing for business equipment that can improve tax efficiency, such as leasing and sale-leaseback.

Instead of buying an item that sits as an expensive purchase on your balance sheet, equipment financing means that you will only be paying an affordable monthly expense for the important equipment your business needs.

Get in touch to explore equipment financing with Fast Forward Finance.

Property Business Loans

Financing for property development is usually in the form of a short-term loan that is used to develop a new building project or to rehabilitate an existing property. Lenders may be able to loan up to 70% or even 100% of the development cost, depending on the circumstances.

Property business loans can be used for a variety of property development as long as it relates to your business. You can get the loan to develop property used by your business, renovate an existing business property, purchase a buy-to-let, or even buy property in an auction.

Development Business Loans

It can be difficult to fund the expansion of your existing company when you don’t know how to raise the needed funds. A business development loan will benefit you by giving you the money you need upfront, allowing you to invest in the future of your company and putting your plans into action. With a business development loan, you can take out a loan and spread the payment over an approved period of time. Get in touch to compare rates

Invoice Financing

Invoice financing helps you to get cash in advance, secured against accounts receivables, rather than waiting for money to come from owing customers.

Fees and charges can differ based on a number of different factors including the type of business, creditworthiness, size and value of invoice and the invoice financing facility you want to use.

This type of loan will help you handle pressing business needs, cash flow, and so on.

Asset Finance

It can be very expensive to purchase, upgrade or repair equipment or plant machinery when business cash is not robust enough.

Asset financing provides companies with access to the equipment, vehicles or technologies that would otherwise be out of their reach, spreading the payment over a period of time so that the expenditure becomes manageable for the business. At Fast Forward Finance, we may be able to access funding for your business. Why not get in touch to discuss your business assets needs?

Business Lines of Credit

A business line of credit is basically a revolving loan that offers a fixed sum of money for your company. It can be used for daily costs and cash-flow needs.

The whole amount doesn’t need to be used all at once, so amounts can be withdrawn when needed until the total loan amount is reached.

A line of credit is ideal for businesses that have pressing needs but are not certain exactly how much they need and want to avoid paying interest on unused loans.

If you need a line of credit to boost your business operations, get in touch with us to talk about your business needs.

Business Loans in the Amount of up to 50,000

If you have identified a profitable business opportunity but don’t you have the cash to benefit from it, your answer could be a £50,000-business loan.

As long as you can meet the lender’s criteria, you may be able to borrow £50,000 over a pre-arranged period of time to handle your business cash-flow problems.

Lenders may opt to protect loans of amounts of £50,000 and above against a company or personal assets, such as property or equipment. So, be sure you gave a viable repayment plan in place before going forward with the loan so as not to put your property at risk.

Business Loans in the Amount of up to 100,000

We also help businesses arrange loans up to 100K. The loans can be used for any business purpose, including asset purchase or working capital. Apply now to find out how much you are eligible for.

Large Business Loans

If you’re seeking a large business loan specifically for short-term property finance or development finance, we can match you with the right lender. A large business loan could be perfect for businesses that want to either purchase new equipment, procure new property or engage in business expansion.

Unsecured Business Loans

An unsecured business loan gives UK companies a simple funding solution; you can get the funds you need to keep your business afloat without having to secure the loan against company assets, such as land, buildings or equipment.

You will have faster access to an unsecured loan because there are fewer checks and legalities to go through than with a secured loan. Get in touch let us help you explore unsecured loan options.

No-credit-check Business Loans

A no-credit-check business loan is a form of business finance where the credit score is not considered by the lender during the application process. This is usually short-term lending, so it may be more expensive than other alternatives.

So, whether you have a poor credit score or your business is too young to have a credit score, we may be able to clinch a loan deal for you. Get in touch to discuss more on this.

What’s the Difference Between Secured and Unsecured Loans?

The key difference between these types of loans is that secured loans demand that you have tangible assets as collateral. The unsecured loan is suitable for businesses that do not have such protection, which means unsecured business loans are perfect for new companies, as businesses like this may not have collateral that can stand as security for the loans they need.

Also, unsecured loans tend to be more expensive than secured loans because unsecured loans are riskier for lenders.

What are the Eligibility Criteria for a Business Loan?

Although there are no fixed’ standard’ conditions for business loans, there are a couple of basic considerations that most lenders consider when evaluating your business. When applying for a loan, here are a few rules of thumb to bear in mind:

  • the loan amount should be less than 25% of your annual turnover.
  • You run a profitable or viable business
  • You should have at least 2 years of business operation history (for some lenders)
  • No outstanding CCJs or prior credit problems.
  • A UK based business

How does the Application Process for a Business Loan work?

Initial application

It all starts when you fill out an online application. You can do it in just a few minutes. This application will ask you basic questions about your company, your credit history and yourself.

The information provided will help us understand your loan needs and determine a suitable loan product for you.


When the lender has the details they need, the underwriting process will begin. Here the lender can decide how risky it is to give you a loan. If they’re unsure about anything, they might ask for more details.

They will either accept your application or deny it. They can, in some cases, set down additional stipulations that you will need to comply with to be accepted.

Whatever the case, you can count on getting a fast decision, so that you can know the next step to take.


If your loan application passes through the underwriting stage and your application is approved, the lender will provide you with an offer.

It will typically consist of how much the lender is willing to let you borrow along with the total amount of debt, interest rate and a timeline for repayments.

It will also contain any stipulations that may have been introduced during the underwriting process. It is up to you then to accept or reject the loan deal.

Contract signing

When a lender has approved the application one of our dedicated account managers will be in contact to negotiate the terms of your loan agreement. At this point, you are welcome to ask about anything that you are unsure or worry about, including repayment plans to ensure that there are no unexpected surprises along the way.

After you have read through the terms of the lender carefully, you will need to sign and commit to them.


If everything checks out, the lender will transfer the funds to your account within a few hours. Because our lenders believe in fast funding, you can get the money very soon after approval.

What can you use a Business Loan for?

Lenders offer a variety of business loan options designed for different business needs. For example, you can find loans to use for:

  • Purchasing equipment.
  • Financing expansion.
  • Buying, renovating or refinancing property for business.
  • Raising working capital.
