Yes, all of our finance applications involve a credit check and are subject to credit approval.

Most funders we have on board require the credit score to be good in order to be accepted for finance. However, if you have been declined previously or you are worried that you might be denied the finance then please speak to our sales team regarding this and choose the best option for you. Depending on the information provided we may ask for the following:

  • Last 3 months business or personal bank statements
  • Any accounts or tax returns you can provide

If the finance is accepted on a business application, then the finance company might then ask for a director’s guarantee.
