Application information

Your application will take about 10 minutes and on completion you will receive a funding decision in principle. This will give you an indication of whether your business meets the criteria for Forward Finance or whether we think a different form of funding would be better suited to your business.

To apply you need to be 18 or over and a resident of the UK. To complete your application, you will need the following information:

  • Names and addresses of all company directors or proprietors
  • Your company number (if you are a limited company)
  • Your trading address; and
  • Your trading information including current annual turnover, details of the credit terms you offer to your customers, and some other information relating to your business.

Following an agreement in principle, your funding will be available within 5 working days.

If we need additional information, we will make this clear to you at the end of the online application process.

We take your privacy and data security seriously. By clicking ‘agree and proceed’, you are confirming that you are happy for us to capture and store your information as detailed in our data protection policy.

We will only use this information to assess whether we can offer you a funding facility, and we will only contact you to progress or discuss this application. Your details - and those of your business - will not be passed on to third parties, without your consent.

This online application is not a legal agreement for a funding facility. Should we make an offer in principle, we will need to undertake full credit checks and further information about your business is required before we can confirm your offer.
