Apply for business finance online – a user guide

Does the thought of spending hours applying for finance fill you with dread? Would you rather be running your business rather than pushing paper?

At BIZL we understand your pain, which is why we have built a really easy platform that means you can apply to 20+ lenders in just 5 minutes.


5 minutes

As a business owner your time is money, and we all know there are better things to do than form filling. Our unique online platform is built with you in mind, meaning you can apply online 24/7 and get it done and dusted in 5 minutes. Of course we are also on the end of the phone if you like, or you can webchat with us throughout the application.

Here’s what you can expect:

So let’s sketch out the simple process…

5 steps

Here’s what we ask you in the online application:

  1. Finance requirement – how much are you after and what for?
  2. Business details – what does your business do, how long have you been around?
  3. Security – what security do you have to offer, or are you applying for unsecured finance?
  4. Documents – upload recent financial accounts, bank statements and any documents you think will be useful.
  5. Personal details – name, number…that kind of thing.
