Alternative funding

As mentioned above, bank funding is still responsible for 85% of SME funding. However, scarily there is still a £10 million gap in unmet funding from the banks to small and medium businesses, and the application process can take several weeks.

At Forward Accounting, we have partnered with Iwoca. A lender that has been created to fill the gap for SME’s in providing funding quickly and up to the limits of £200,000. Iwoca can connect to our cloud accounitng technology to pull live data to assess your application, reducing the lead time of application from weeks to minutes

With the option of a Small business Loan, or use of their credit line facility (a fund in which you can withdraw on and payback when you need it) they are sure to have the funding options you need. With clear, transparent pricing you will know exactly where you stand.
