Boost the financial health of your pharmacy with business funding

According to the General Pharmaceutical Council, there are currently 13,855 registered pharmacies in England, Wales and Scotland. To thrive in this competitive environment, pharmacies often need to quickly adapt, innovate, and find ways to differentiate themselves - this is where a merchant cash advance, a type of unsecured business loan, could help.

Whether you're expanding the pharmacy, purchasing inventory, upgrading equipment, hiring staff or managing working capital, a merchant cash advance can provide the vital capital you need for growth, ensuring that your pharmacy remains competitive.

With pharmacies and health shops often relying on card sales for a substantial portion of their revenue, this funding solution is well-suited as it releases capital against these card sales. And unlike conventional business loans with fixed repayment schedules, these repayments are flexible and align seamlessly with your card revenue.

So, if you're a large pharmacy or smaller, independently-owned health and wellness shop specialising in sports nutrition, we can help you access the quick capital you need. Interested in a fast, hassle-free quote? Complete our simple online application form to see if your business qualifies!

A pharmacy business loan can be used for a variety of purposes:

  • Working capital to manage and support day-to-day operating expenses
  • Hire new staff such as pharmacists, technicians, medicine counter assistants and other support staff
  • Opening new pharmacy locations or renovating your existing health and wellness store
  • Emergency funding to help with unexpected repairs and maintenance to equipment and buildings
  • Upgrade existing equipment, such as prescription dispensing systems, to help increase efficiency
  • Building an online health store to reach a wider audience
  • Launch marketing campaigns to promote your services and special offers on products
  • Stock up with a broader range of medications, supplements, vitamins, sports nutrition and other healthcare products
  • Funding to help expand into new complementary health services

Pharmacy business loans are designed to provide financial support and capital to pharmacies and other health-related businesses in the UK. These loans can be used for various business purposes to help you improve and grow, ensuring that your pharmacy or healthcare shop remains competitive.

Here at MLA, we offer a merchant cash advance, a type of business loan where a pharmacy receives a lump sum of capital upfront in exchange for a small portion of its future card sales.

Repayments are tied to the pharmacy's daily card sales. For example, instead of fixed monthly payments like a conventional business loan, an agreed percentage (usually ranging from 10% to 25%) of daily card sales is automatically collected by the lender. This means that on days with higher sales, the repayment amount is higher, and on slower days, it's lower.

How repayments work with a pharmacy merchant cash advance

Merchant cash advances typically have shorter terms compared to traditional loans. There's no 'fixed' term length; your daily card transactions or overall sales revenue will determine the repayment duration. Typically, this flexible repayment model can range from around 4 to 12 months, though this will vary based on your business performance and the agreement between the provider.

The amount your pharmacy business can borrow will depend upon your monthly card revenue and affordability. Generally, you can borrow up to one month's card revenue, so for example, if your pharmacy processes £10,000 a month on card, you can borrow up to £10,000 or more depending on your business.

We offer advances from £3,000 up to £300,000. To find out how much you could qualify for, apply online today!
