Apply for Business Loans UK

Hamilton Wood and Company are a respected and trusted loans broker in the United Kingdom (UK).

We help businesses of all sizes find and secure affordable business loans to help facilitate growth.

Established in 2017, since then we have gone on to help countless businesses secure business funding at extremely competitive rates.

Access to finance at an affordable rate is a vital element of continued growth and development.

As a company, we are often asked if we can help secure fast business loans, and we can; sometimes same day loans when the director team are motivated and willing to complete all necessary status checks.

Having said that, if you are looking for a quick business loan, please heed our caution and slow down… just a mo.

While there are many lenders out there offering quick loans for businesses, pay attention to the APR and arrangement fees.  If a lender is really promising you the money you need and the process seems hurried, along with pressure to accept then you might want to take a moment to carefully review the proposed loan solution.

Hamilton Wood and Company exist to help strengthen small businesses and all too often we hear of companies who didn’t perform adequate due diligence and have been signed into loan agreements with some other loan brokers that we would not have personally chosen.


  1. Is the APR the lowest you can get?
  2. Is the APR along with the arrangement fee competitive?
  3. Can you afford the repayments?
  4. Have you considered taking the business loan over a longer term to reduce your monthly payment?
  5. Could you achieve the same with a lower amount of loan? This will reduce your payments if you can.
  6. Have you got a minimum of three loan options?

Hamilton Wood and Company are a loans broker and only help Companies registered at companies’ house; we do not help individuals or sadly, sole traders.  You have to be a registered company for us to help you.

We do not offer start-up business loans. We can only help businesses that have been trading for over 12m or that have a turnover above £2500 per month.

If you have read the above and are still with us, then the next bit is for you.

With Hamilton Wood and Company, our team of specialists will help you secure the best small business loan we can, subject to status.

Our process is simple and straightforward.  We can help you secure from £1000 to over £600m provided you are able to complete all our lending panels’ security and vetting processes.  Please remember this is not down to us.  Any loan is between you and the lender and it is they who need appropriate securities in place.

Providing everything is processed smoothly, we can help you secure some of the best business loans around. We do not use any lenders we would not use ourselves.  We also carefully review our lending panel.  If we hear too much ‘bad press’ about them, we will remove them from our pool of lenders.

What this shows is our commitment to helping your business at every stage of its journey.
