Business loans, invoice finance, asset finance and overdrafts

The number of self-employed people in the UK has skyrocketed over the past few years; rising from 3.3 million in 2001 to 4.7 million in 2017 according to the Office for National Statistics. And that number is only going to continue rising over the next few years. More and more are turning to starting their own business in all industries and sectors, thanks to this increased push and focus on entrepreneurs to boost local and national economies.

In order to get these businesses off the ground, most people will need to apply for some kind of funding. Some examples of these include business loans, invoice finance (or factoring), and asset finance – ICS’ Funding Solutions team is ideally placed to assist with business finance enquiries.

If you are seeking funding for your startup, it’s important to remember that no funding comes without a price. Lenders will usually want something in return for lending their money to you such as some form of security, a personal guarantee or even ownership of the company via shares. It’s important to balance the risk against the amount of funding you require to get your new business off the ground; be mindful of keeping your expectations realistic.

All funding options detailed on our website are available for startups as well as established businesses. However, the risk is often greater when funding a new start business than a business which has been trading for a number of years.
