Business Finance Explained

Work out what type of finance is best for your business, taking into account your business size, turnover, your willingness to offer shares and the amount of funding you need.

The most suitable finance option for your business depends on many things, including:

  • how much funding you need
  • your current business revenue or if you're a new business
  • whether or not you're willing to offer personal assets as security this can make it easier to get funding but is risky if you're not able to maintain payments
  • whether or not you own a business property this can make it easier to get funding
  • whether or not you're willing to sell shares

This online guide explains the different types of funding available.
