Unlock Capital With A Merchant Cash Advance

A Merchant Cash Advance gives you access to funding to grow your business and you only pay once customers pay you.

A Merchant Cash Advance, also known as a Business Cash Advance was first introduced to the UK in 2007. It has supported businesses ever since with its simple, flexible and transparent funding, helping UK businesses achieve their ambitions. A Merchant Cash Advance is a great finance option for SMEs with no fixed payments, fixed terms or security, the advance is repaid as a percentage of future card sales. This type of funding is used by businesses of all shapes and sizes ranging from well-established household names to new starts that have been trading for 4 months or longer, as long as your business takes card payments from your customers.

How does it work?

A Merchant Cash Advance works like a business loan but with a key difference in the way that repayments are managed, meaning businesses don't need to worry about natural fluctuations in sales and profits when it comes to affording repayments. The loan is based upon future credit and debit card sales, only paying back your advance when your business earns.

Merchant Cash Advances are a popular financing option for businesses like restaurants and retailers, which obtain most of their revenue through credit and debit card sales. For example, purchasing seasonal stock to meet the demand of holiday shoppers, doing a quick site refresh or just for managing cash flow! That is when a Merchant Cash Advance will work in hand with your business.
