Small Businesses Thrown a Lifeline by the UK Bridging Loans Industry

Alternative Financial Products for Small Businesses and Startups Discussed by 2016-12-07 16:29:09
Industry experts across the United Kingdom are throwing their support behind bridging loans, as convenient and accessible financial solutions for small businesses. For smaller businesses and new start-ups in particular, getting hold of fast, affordable and flexible cash in times of need can make the difference between a company that thrives and a firm that fails. In many instances, the conventional financial products and services of major lenders simply aren’t up to the job.

According to the team at, an affordable, accessible bridging loan has the potential to represent a genuine lifeline for any smaller business facing a temporary shortfall. So-called ‘higher-risk’ lending restrictions are seeing more applicants turned away by major banks and lenders than ever before. Where conventional financial products and solutions are unavailable or unsuitable, the answer may lie in an alternative, intelligent product.

Near-Instant Access

“The main advantage of bridging for all businesses is the speed on offer. While traditional mortgages and bank loans can take months to arrange, a bridging loan can be completed in days. When used appropriately, the ability to raise finance this quickly can be a major benefit, enabling a business to make the most of any impromptu opportunity. By allowing businesses to act at the right time, bridging loans can become a vital tool in ensuring their growth.” - Stephen Wasserman, director of West One Loans

As commercial rents and operating costs in general continue to spike like never before, new businesses are finding it increasingly difficult to get off the ground and stay afloat. Temporary financial shortfalls are largely inevitable in the small business world, which have a tendency to creep up unexpected and catch their respective operators off-guard.

In such instances, bridging loans can perform over and above conventional financial products in every way. The cash required is made available almost instantly, interest rates can be highly competitive and repayment terms/periods are much shorter and simpler. When it comes to bridging unexpected gaps, bridging loans live up to their name.

Intelligent Finance, Instant Quotations

“Funds raised from bridging finance can be used for pretty much any legal reason, provided it is agreed with the lender from the outset. A specialist bridging loan company such as, have, due to the volume we process, special relationships with all of the key lenders and know the requirements needed to ensure a quick and smooth transaction. We also use our own funds for certain lending, which helps us to move even quicker if required. Processing time is however normally 3 - 5 working days.” -

A key player in the UK bridging loans industry, has spoken of how these intelligent financial products are already proving no less than life-saving for hundreds, perhaps thousands of smaller businesses across Britain. From the costs associated with setting up a business to initial operational costs to unexpected shortfalls of any kind, bridging loans have the potential to support businesses through their most challenging times.

According to the bridging loans industry, nothing matters more than supporting and nurturing new business for the sake of the British economy. Major lenders, by contrast, are continuing to tighten their own restriction and rules, making it more difficult than ever before for smaller businesses to get by.
