What can I do with a working capital loan?

Working capital loans can help you develop, expand and improve your business, or simply ease cash flow to keep things running smoothly. Here are some examples of how our clients use their working capital loans:

Cash-flow to pay staff

Many working capital loans are used to bridge the time gaps between paying staff and receiving payment from clients.

Opportunity optimiser

Businesses may need funds to take advantage of an opportunity that comes up that they would profit from, that they may miss out without an initial outlay.

Cash-flow for seasonal businesses

Working capital loans are popular for seasonal businesses, like landscape construction and tourism, who wish to retain staff during slower periods.

Expanding during quieter times

When it comes to expanding your business, you can find yourself without the time during busier times and without the funds during quieter times. A working capital loan can give you the finances to make the most of slower periods.
