In March 2013, the Government began lending £20 million to small UK businesses through Funding Circle, as part of its Business Finance Partnership scheme.
In early 2014, the Government-backed British Business Bank Investment Programme decided to invest a further £40 million alongside other investors, to support economic growth by providing more efficient finance to small businesses.

Cost of finance
Interest rates start at 1.9% and are fixed for the duration of your loan, so you know exactly how much to budget for each month.
Fees at Funding Circle are simple and transparent and unlike other lenders, there are no fees for full early repayment.
You’ll only be charged one fee when you take out your loan. This is based on the amount and term of your loan, and is payable only if you accept the loan. If you go on to take out further finance with us or refinance, you will be charged a fee each time.
|Loan type||Loan term||Fee|
|Unsecured and secured business loans||6 months – 1 year||1% – 5%|
|2 – 3 years||3% – 6%|
|4 – 5 years||5% – 6%|
|Asset finance||6 months – 5 years||5%|
|Property finance||6 months – 5 years||2%|
Late payment: If for some reason you are unable to make your monthly repayment on time, we may charge an administration fee of up to 15% of the repayment amount.
