Our Offer

Fixed rate loans

Finance available for up to 100% of the funding need. Repayments on all our loans are unaffected by interest rate changes.

We are not algorithm driven

Each client is recognised as an individual and their business is assessed in the same way.

Personal tailored service

Loans available to all sectors that are designed to meet the needs of each client.

Flexible terms

No early settlement fees and interest only periods available by negotiation.

“We were put in touch with Julie from BEF. She was absolutely brilliant and gave us all the help and advice we needed”

“The shop needed a lot of work to complete it so I used my own savings to get it just right. I then used BEF’s funding to help fill it with stock.”
