What makes us different?
If you’re in need of a small business loan, the traditional first port of call is likely to be the high street bank. Unfortunately, that may no longer be a viable channel for SMEs due to low acceptance rates. Merchant Money was established specifically to empower businesses such as yours to reach its goals by offering small business loans when traditional channels aren’t available.
The speed at which finance can be obtained along with the short repayment period is ideal for keeping your business operations flowing in the short term without hindering future growth due to high monthly repayments.
How can we help you grow your business?
The relationships we’ve built with clients and the fact that we run our own business allows us to truly understand how valuable a small business loan can be for SMEs. Our clients agree with us that the main advantages are:
- Keeping equity and control: Small business loans allow you to keep control and equity of your business whilst gaining the capital to support and grow your current operations.
- Smaller repayment period: Smaller repayment periods ensure you’re paying back less overall due to the limited period of time of the loan.
- Accessibility and flexibility: Obtaining a small business loan is generally much quicker and easier than traditional loans from the bank, allowing you access to finance when you need it most. The flexibility of small business loans solves the issue of unexpected costs that arise from day to day business, allowing you to keep operations running smoothly.
Serving all UK companies
We welcome all UK registered limited companies, sole traders and (unincorporated) partnerships. That includes (e-commerce) retailers, restaurants, hotels, service providers and more. Regardless what industry you are in or where your business is located, your business may qualify for up to £150,000. We make sure you can spend your time on the business, instead of the paperwork.
Small business loans for big business goals
We believe that our facilities are ideal for business owners that are looking for quick funding to grow their business on a short term. Over the years, we helped 750 businesses grow, we funded over £35,000,000 and over 90% of our customers say our service is great. Businesses use our products for all sorts of purposes, from bridging short-term cash flow gaps to working capital or hire new talent.
Refurbish, renovate or expand your office or shop
It can be a real challenge for pubs, restaurants, shops or stores to seek finance for necessary refurbishment, renovation or other improvements. Banks are slow and funding can be costly, which can cause cash flow constraints. However, business owners who keep investing carefully, will ultimately reap the rewards. For many, it may make the difference between success and failure. Small business funding can help to ease the pressure when it comes to costly improvements. This is where Merchant Money can assist, providing fast, flexible finance solutions in the UK. For those businesses that run an online shop, we offer e-commerce funding. An ideal solution if you want to grow your eBay or Amazon business.
Martin Horner, Director of The Borough (hotel, pub & restaurant)
“Fortunately, Merchant Money understands my business and have assisted me in improving my facilities several times. The process is fast and simple, and the MM team is great to deal with. I will definitely partner with it again.’’
Turn that clever idea into a profitable business
Our facilities are ideal for SMEs in the UK whose businesses are growing or have the potential to grow. Unfortunately, we can’t help startups. If you wish to apply for a business loan, we require your business to be trading for at least 1 year. We do offer an alternative for those businesses that accepts card payments: a merchant cash advance. This flexible product is specifically designed for businesses that accept card payments and is more suitable for startups as we require a minimum trading of 6 months.
Dominic Boyett, Director EU Coffee Roasters
“Our recent experience with Merchant Money was faultless from start to finish, and I have no hesitations in recommending them for their professionalism and efficiency when handling our recent financing needs for the business. Their plain speaking and simple approach to our needs, gave us the confidence that we were working with a finance house that genuinely wanted to go that extra mile in helping us find the best solution in the most cost effective way possible. They can be assured that we would never approach any other finance provider without giving Merchant Money the opportunity first”.
Do I qualify for a Small Business Loan?
We accept applications from UK Registered Companies that have at least one years audited trading accounts, and all of your directors are over the age of 18 years. We will require the personal guarantee of two directors in support of the funding facility. We also accept applications from partnerships and sole traders, for loans between £25,000<£50,000.
Can I settle my funding account early?
Yes. Although these are not short-term loans (we usually contract between 12-24 months) we allow you to settle early or pay additional amounts into your account at any time. There are no early repayment penalties or administrative fees. You pay interest only on the outstanding daily balance throughout the duration of your loan. Please note a minimum 30 days interest fee is always charged.
Are there any arrangement fees or charges?
How long does the whole process take?
We aim to process all applications within 1 business day. Once you have completed the short online application form, we will call you to discuss your application in more detail. After your loan has been approved and we have received all of the completed documentation (including an e-signed loan agreement), we will release the funds. It usually takes less than 2 hours for the funds to appear in your bank account.
Do you take security?
We do not take security, but ask that the two principal directors each sign a personal guarantee.
How do I pay you?
You can pay us using your business debit card, by direct debit or standing order. You can also use PayPal or pay us online using your business Internet Banking facility. It pays to pay on time!
