Funding your business

Meeting the demands of cash flow and working capital are always a challenge for any business, regardless of size or industry. The greater challenge, perhaps, is that of sourcing the cash to keep your business successful and growing. These days there are a plethora of funding options available to business owners, with the traditional choices of overdrafts or borrowing from friends and family no longer the only way to get cash into your business.

What are the business financing options available to you?

There are now more finance options for you and your business than ever before. Keeping the cash flowing in your business is vital. We at Catalyst believe that you should be able to utilise the assets in your business to deliver the funds needed to help you realise your growth ambitions. For any aspect of short term lending we will be able to tailor a finance solution for you.


Is your business eligible?

  • Do you need funds from £25k to £1 million?
  • Is your business based in England, Scotland or Wales?
  • Are you registered as Limited Company, PLC or LLP (in some cases Partnerships are eligible)?
  • Are you a UK homeowner?


If you answer yes to all of the above questions then we could help.  Take a look at our products below and see how we can help keep cash flowing in your business.

  • How much does it cost?

    For a Selective Invoice Finance facility the charge/interest fee is calculated daily based upon the amount you have used and for the time you have used it. These fees will be payable by you either when the invoice is paid in full or, in the case of a commercial business loan, on a monthly basis. For other short term loans the charge/interest rate is dependant on the type and length of the facility. Contact the team to discuss the options available.

  • What types of businesses do you fund?

    We fund all types of PLC, Limited Companies and LLPs. You can secure funding if you produce invoices or have future business orders which are already in place. You can read about some of the types businesses we have helped in our case studies section of the website.

  • You offer short term funding solutions, what if I need something more longer term?

    Our facilities generally run up to 12 months. If you require funds for a longer term, simply speak with the team and talk them through your additional funding needs and they will be able to advise you quickly on your options.
