For decades, many accountants – and their clients – have thought that banks were the only providers of business finance. The funding landscape is evolving rapidly and LendingCrowd, the only fintech lender headquartered in Scotland, now has a proposition designed exclusively for accountants.
We’re proud to work in partnership with ICAS to help your clients take their business further using our leading-edge technology platform. You can access funding for your clients – at a discounted fee – faster than through traditional channels.
Whether it’s for working capital, researching and designing new products, capitalising on growth opportunities, refurbishing premises, recruiting and training new staff, buying stock, investing in marketing or restructuring debt, a LendingCrowd business loan can fund your client’s ambitions. It’s time to Think Outside The Bank.
In a survey of LendingCrowd borrowers, 25% said they would have been “very unlikely” to obtain funding in our absence, and a failure to secure funds would have been a “missed opportunity” leading to a negative impact on jobs and investment.
Your clients can borrow from £5,000 to £500,000, with loan terms ranging from six months to five years. Our flexible platform allows monthly or one-off overpayments and early repayment in full – with no early repayment charges.
Affordability is key to our lending decisions, so we focus on a client’s ability to repay their business loan when assessing their application.
We also look for proven management ability, a strong and considered business plan, and analyse their assets and liabilities.
We can offer your clients:
