How does business finance work?

When you’re running a business, arranging finance for large purchases or boosting cashflow with a business loan can be time consuming and stressful. Portman can save you time; as both lender and broker we can access our own exclusive finance or compare the market through our panel of over 45 lenders. If finance is available for your business, we will get it. Plus, your dedicated Account Manager will sort most of the admin for you, allowing you to get on with your day.

1. Submit your business finance enquiry in 60s.

Use our enquiry form, give us a couple of details about your needs and your company, give us your number and we’ll call you back. Does not affect your credit score.

2. A chat about your business and goals.

A dedicated account manager will discuss your needs and collect documentation.

3. Our experts do the leg-work.

We find the right deals, complete applications on your behalf and get you a no obligation quote.

4. Your no-fuss finance is funded.

If accepted, your assets will be bought and delivered or the finance released to your account.
