Why use Anglo Scottish?

Banks often have strict lending criteria, making many businesses ineligible for their services. Anglo Scottish on the other hand, works with an extensive range of funders with varying lending criteria, which means that we can find a lending solution that genuinely matches a business’s requirement.

We help businesses with a wide variety of funding profiles, including start-ups and established businesses, businesses with adverse credit histories and those who have been affected by unfavourable market conditions.

Benefits of a business loan

  • Help with payroll
  • Manage uncertainty
  • Grow your business
  • Cover revenue gaps
  • Purchase new services or equipment

Types of commercial lending

A commercial loan is the simplest form of commercial lending. You decide on an amount, agree a repayment period and the interest rate and fees.

There are two types of commercial loans

  • Secured 
  • Or unsecured loans. 

Secured loans usually have lower costs because the lender is taking a lower risk, but you need to have assets to use as security, such as commercial property, vehicles, and machinery. 

Unsecured loans are useful for companies that don’t have enough assets to get a secured loan.

Who can apply for a commercial loan?

Almost any business can apply for a commercial loan, no matter how big or how small. Typically, your business will need to be VAT registered and ideally, you should have at least two years of filed accounts, although some commercial lenders are happy to provide loans to small businesses with less than two years’ trading history.
