When the Bank says ‘No’ - funding your small business

Posted 10 Jul 16

Starting your own company might require financial investment not all of the young business owners can afford. Most of them approach bank as their first solution to funding their companies, however, often they are met with rejection.


This is due to difficult economic situation in the world right now which makes banks anxious to take any risks. In the long run, it blocks the development of a large number of potentially successful businesses. The statistics show that the smaller the business the less likely it is to get a bank loan and currently banks are declining up to 50% of loan requests.

Unfortunately, banks hardly rely on the prospects of your business when making the decision. Their processes are often outdated and come with high costs of capital, which makes it difficult for them to lend to businesses whose future is unsure.

The good news is that there are other lenders you can approach when seeking funding for your business, even if you have been told ‘no’ by your bank. There are also public schemes that provide support and funding to businesses. The best way to find those is by signing up to HMRC and government newsletters, participate in events organised by your trade representatives and discuss your options with people more experienced in the business area of your interest.
