Unsecured business loans offer SMEs in need of funds but short of assets with a quick and easy solution. These loans don’t require security, which means you don’t need to use an asset to secure the funding. There are a variety of lenders on the market who offer loans of this type up to as much as £250,000.

How do unsecured business loans work?

Unsecured business loans give your business immediate funding without securing the loan against any assets, which a lender would usually sell if they needed to recoup the value of the loan if things didn’t work out. Most businesses repay the loan in installments over a fixed time period.

Is an unsecured business loan right for my business?

There are many benefits to this type of loan, and both new and established businesses utilise this option. With no assets required, it makes this type of funding very accessible to all businesses and the money is released a lot quicker than traditional bank loans. They can be used to spend on anything from new equipment to training and many come with flexible repayment terms.

What are the main pros and cons of an unsecured business loan?


    • No assets required to secure the loan
    • Businesses can choose what they spend the money on
    • Flexible payment terms - they can be repaid over short and medium terms



    • Tend to be more expensive than traditional bank loans
    • They can create potential for significant debt​​
    • With no assets to secure the loan against, lenders take a detailed look at the full picture of your business including business plans and cash flow

    Invoice finance allows you to release cash quickly from your unpaid invoices.
