Our History


Dave FarmerLime Consultancy was founded in 2012 by David Farmer who decided to launch the company to work with small businesses, help them achieve more and help them raise funding more easily.

With a commercial finance background at the major UK banks, David has vast experience working with both successful and under-performing businesses, analysing the reasons behind performance and identifying barriers to raising commercial finance.

Having seen many businesses fail to achieve borrowing it was apparent to David that many companies were unprepared when raising finance and many more were unaware of what commercial finance options existed.

After starting in 2012 Lime Consultancy have grown and built a reputation for delivering business finance solutions, since 2012 Lime Consultancy have been awarded;

  • ‘Boutique Financial Advisory Firm of the Year 2015’ From Wealth & Finance Magazine
  • ‘Best for SME Funding Solutions – South East 2015’ From AI sponsored by Dealflow Source

  • ‘Crowdfunding Specialist Advisers UK 2014’
  • ‘Scoot Headline Business Award Winners 2014’
  • ‘Sussex Business Matters Awards, Small Business of the Year’, Finalists 2013 & 2014

It is the ethos of ‘Making Business Finance Simple’ that Lime Consultancy is built around.

The Benefits

Using unique skills, systems and processes, we are able to view your business from a lender’s perspective undertaking our own credit assessment and addressing any issues before the lender ever receives your proposal. This means that more of our proposals are approved and the whole process of borrowing is simpler than ever before.

If you want more reasons why you should be working with us;

  • Faith – As full members of the NACFB we are consistently updated on the latest industry developments and committed to continual professional development
  • Confidence – Authorised and Regulated by The Financial Conduct Authority, we are fully authorised, vetted and approved by The FCA as being competent and capable of advising on commercial borrowing
  • Honest – We do not charge any upfront, application, assessment or any other fees. We only ever cost you when you get the lending offer you want. We do this because it means we are committed to working with you to the end and making sure things happen, it is also our way of demonstrating our confidence in what we do
  • Options – We are on the approved panels of the major lenders, work with specialist niche lenders, peer to peer lenders and many who are not available directly. Because of this we often get deals unavailable to you direct
  • Ease – We manage the whole process for you. That means liaising with your accountant, solicitor, agent, whoever is part of the overall chain. We do this so we can get things right first time and remove as much hassle from you as possible
