Welcome to Business Finance by Lime Consultancy

Lime Consultancy are an award winning business finance broker based at Gatwick, West Sussex and in Southwark, London. Fully authorised and regulated by The Financial Conduct Authority we enable UK SMEs to access lending and funding which they may have believed was impossible, or who simply want a better option to what they already have.

We understand that no business wants to borrow, but they do want what the borrowing will give them. Whether that be new premises, working capital, a chance to expand or to alleviate pressure from other creditors. Understanding this means we always put the client first and work to find the right option every time.

Over the next four years the gap between business lending approval and demand is expected to increase from £84bn to £191bn. There are now over 300 quality lenders in the commercial sector but 91% of UK small businesses will still approach one of the big five banks when they want to borrow.

Not surprising then that so many businesses think that raising finance is difficult, but it isn’t. It’s simply that the lending market changed but nobody explained it.

Working with over 200 recognised and niche lenders we truly make raising business finance simple.

Lenders We Work With

Naturally we work with the major banks, but we also work with alternative and niche business lenders, which means we are able to offer solutions that most of our clients never knew existed. We have won several awards for our work and only work with lenders who share our commitment to service.

Typically our clients have already tried to raise finance themselves and it may be they have either been declined or have not secured the deal that works for them. We can improve on that by sourcing an alternative or finding a better fit.

Obviously we cannot work with every business, sometimes there is never a perfect solution. What we promise is that we will tell you without delay and guide you accordingly.
