Fixed cost business loan provider Cubefunder has launched a free guide to business finance, promising independent and impartial information on the various business funding options available to UK businesses.

Options covered include bank loans, asset finance, crowdfunding, private investors, merchant cash advance and P2P lending. Gary Miller-Cheevers, CEO at Cubefunder, commented: “Traditionally, businesses seeking finance would turn to their bank for a loan. But since the 2008 financial crisis, the banks’ lending criteria has tightened up considerably, leaving many businesses unable to get the finance they need to grow.

“The good news is that in the last decade, there have been a number of new business finance options coming on to the market that can provide businesses with cost-effective lending solutions. These new business finance models mean that companies can quickly get the finance they require, delivering solutions that businesses need, without endless paperwork.

“Our guide is designed to explain the different business funding options available to UK businesses, so they can make an informed choice as to the solution that is most appropriate to them.”
