Commercial Loans For Businesses Of All Sizes

Commercial Loans

The right amount of money, at the right time, on the right terms, can make or break a business many times over. That’s why it’s important to find the most appropriate commercial loan to protect your business, or to support your ambitious business plans.

Our expert commercial finance brokers have secured millions of pounds in business loans for our clients over the years, for purposes ranging from working capital needs, to essential or speculative business expansion, including leasehold and goodwill purchases.

What is a commercial loan?

Commercial loans are a common and near essential requirement across the business landscape whether it’s for a new startup or a long established company with a great credit record. 

They are used in the same way a personal loan would be, except they are for commercial and business purposes. They are one of the most effective, and quicker ways to get commercial finance offered by a number of leading retail banks, and independent lenders.

What’s the difference between a commercial loan and a business loan?

Essentially a commercial loan and a business loan is the same thing. Both terms are used across the finance industry but they refer to the same product. There are numerous different types of loans for businesses, as highlighted above, so it is important to understand how each option works and how they could potentially help you and your business grow or survive.

Types of Commercial Loans

Whether it's a small unsecured loan or a larger, more complex secured loan, companies can benefit from a range of business loans for a variety of purposes.

Commercial Bridge Loans

A commercial bridge loan is what it’s name suggests. It is a short term loan that is used to secure funds quickly against the commercial property bridging the gap between other methods of financing to purchase swiftly. 

For example, if you were purchasing a commercial property at auction and needed to close the sale within four weeks, you would likely use this quick method of finance to secure funds quickly.

Secured Business Loan

A secured loan is also known as an asset-backed lending. This is because you can gain funds by using an asset owned by the business as a form of security. 

A commercial asset could be the building, furniture, company vehicles or any equipment. In the event of the business being unable to make any loan payments they could use the assets to recover the funds.

Unsecured Business Loan

In opposition to the above, an unsecured loan is used to gain funds without a business’ assets being used as security. Perhaps you're a startup and don’t have any business assets yet. Or simply don’t want to use assets as a form of security.

No problem, you can still benefit from a business loan with flexible options and a quick way to get the capital you need.
