Secured business loans are a way for SMEs to receive an injection of cash by using items owned by a business as security. Because lenders use commercial assets to secure a loan, it means they can lend a lot more when compared to unsecured business loans, which use different criteria, sometimes as much as £2 million. Because lenders user assets to secure the loan, many don’t need to use harder credit checks during the application process.

How do secured business loans work?

Using existing commercial assets such as property, machinery or vehicles, lenders will secure the amount they lend against an item owned by the business as security. This means that if something should go wrong and a business struggles to meet its monthly repayments, the lender can sell the assets in order to recoup the money they’ve lent.

Is a secured business loan right for my business?

Secured business loans allow SMEs to borrow more money across a longer period of time than unsecured loans, providing a great option for businesses looking for medium term funding. The fact they don’t use detailed credit checks makes them a good option for businesses with no or bad credit history.

What are the main pros and cons of a secured business loan?


    • They are less risk to the lender so often cheaper than unsecured equivalents
    • The more assets you have, the bigger the amount you can potentially borrow
    • No requirement for personal assets to secure funding
    • As the asset is the main focus of the loan, there is less focus on credit history



    • If your business goes through a tricky period and you miss payments, you will lose your assets as the lender will sell them to recoup their losses
