What is a Business Development Loan?

A Business Development Loan is a loan product designed specifically for businesses that need capital infusion for one purpose or another. With a business development loan, you can handle cash-intensive projects, expansions, inventory purchase and so on, and grow your business without putting your cash-flow in jeopardy.

If your company is to grow, you’ll need access to operating capital to pay for additional staff, office space, supplies, facilities, marketing and more. Unfortunately, not every business owner has access to the needed capital. This is where Fast Forward Finance comes in.

Via our range of lenders, from unsecured and secured loans to asset finance and merchant cash advances, you’ll have access to a range of business development loans that suit your unique business and financing needs. Contact us for more information.

How to Finance your Business with a Business Development Loan

Consider a business development loan if you wish to keep full ownership of your business, do not have enough funds for expansion, but do not want the hassles that come with bank loans and mortgages. First, decide how much money you’ll need. Because each business has different needs, there is no one-size-fits-all financial solution. The financial condition of your business, your business needs, and what you intend to achieve will determine how much you seek in business loans and how you will go about it.

For example, if you want to buy equipment, you need to apply for a business equipment loan. On the other hand, it would be best to apply for a short-term loan if you want funds to keep the company going until customers and debtors make their payments.

Once you have decided on how much you need, you will need to explore business development loan providers to get a good deal. Thankfully, the experts at Fast Forward Finance can get this done for you easily, so that you can focus on the task of running your business.

Most small business owners use business development loans to pay for expensive supplies, buy inventory or recruit new staff. How you use these funds to help your company expand is up to you. If you are in the market for quick cash for business purposes, call PHONEXXX to talk to someone about your loan needs.

Are Business Development Loans Regulated?

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) usually controls providers of business loans, but this is not a prerequisite for all forms of loans. For example, invoice funding is an unregulated type of loan from an FCA viewpoint.

What are the Business Development Options Available with Fast Forward Finance?

Unsecured Business Development Loans

A lending option that does not need any personal or commercial properties as collateral.

Owing to their affordable costs, flexible terms and speed at which funds can be made available, unsecured business loans are becoming an increasingly common financing choice among business owners.

We provide an option to apply for unsecured business development loans as opposed to conventional lenders.

Secured Business Development Loans

Secured business loans allow your company to obtain even higher sums of loans by providing your business assets as collateral against the loan.

Secured business loans are an enticing choice for those with personal or business properties that can be used as collateral, searching for larger loan sums at the best possible terms, for a corporation or personal properties.

If you have enough equity in a personal or company property, you may be eligible to get a secured business development loan. Get in touch to find out more.

Invoice Finance

An invoice finance tool is used to transfer funds to an organisation, with pending invoices used as protection. We can support you as qualified invoice financing brokers to enjoy the best offers available to keep your company out of the red.

Invoice financing is suitable for companies who have lengthy payment times with clients, or that have clients that sometimes pay late.

Invoice financing can help bridge the cash-flow gap when it comes to paying workers’ salaries and vendors’ invoices. It can also come in handy for businesses that want to carry out projects without incurring excessive debt.

Asset Finance

Asset financing is primarily designed to help companies solve the difficulties of raising money they need to buy assets and equipment. Asset financing offers a more tailored alternative than getting an overdraft or bank loan, and helps companies to extend their payments over longer periods to reduce the burden of cash flows.

As an independent brokerage company in the UK, we can search for the very best business development loan option for your business. To explore your choices and see what’s open to you, get in touch today for a free no-obligation consultation.
