Why use Skipton Business Finance?

Our financial services are different from other financial suppliers. We pride ourselves on a 98% customer satisfaction rate and we feel this is achieved through;


A Flexible Approach to Funding – Unlike banks, we don’t base our decisions on a business’s historic balance sheets, which means we can tailor facilities for each independent business and ensure that your facility will grow with your business.


Dedicated Account Manager – Every client is allocated their own dedicated and experienced Account Manager, who is on hand to help with your facility. This allows us to provide a personalised service to each and every client.


Direct Access – We understand that running a business is time consuming and you don’t have time to be held up in call centre queues and speaking to a different person each time. When you call us, you get through to your dedicated Account Manager.


Local Experts – We have offices across the UK, ensuring that the financial expert that is assigned to you is in your region and is easily accessible.


Simple Process – Every office completes their own commercial underwriting, so you won’t be waiting for cross-department admin, meaning your financial solution is processed quickly and smoothly.


People-Orientated – Our approach to funding is based on people. We ensure that client care is at the heart of what we do, which is why we pride ourselves in our personal service.


Over the past 20 years, Skipton Business Finance has grown, now employing 100+ staff and having 5 offices, services businesses across the UK. This means that we can provide you with expert knowledge that is local to your business.

At Skipton Business Finance, we believe that we are a pioneer in understanding the future potential of our clients. Over the years, we have enjoyed working with UK businesses that have gone on to flourish with the help of the additional working capital, as a result of their Invoice Finance solution.
