The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is the independent regulator of financial services. The FCA requires us to provide you with a document called an 'Initial Disclosure Document' about our services and our costs. This document is designed to be given to our customers considering buying certain financial products to decide if our services are right for you.
Here you will find information about us, the products we offer, the services we will provide, what we charge for our services, who regulates us and what to do if you have a complaint.
We are one of the UK’s fastest-growing online business finance brokers, providing a reliable service for hundreds of businesses operating in the UK since 2014. We are a credit broker, not a lender. We do not provide finance directly to clients and at all times, act as an intermediary. As such, we will locate finance providers who are the providers of the appropriate financial services.
We are owned and operated by Sorodo Limited registered in England and Wales under company number 08039501.
We offer a wide range of commercial finance products, including:
Merchant Cash Advance and Startup Loans.
We only offer commercial finance solutions from a carefully selected panel of finance providers. Ask us for a list of the finance providers we offer.
We help businesses access commercial finance from a range of finance providers. We don’t provide independent financial advice, meaning we cannot give you advice or recommend any financial products to you.
When you complete our application form, we will ask you for information to enable us to identify your needs based on the information you provide to us; we will match your business to finance providers and present you with information on a selection of finance solutions which may be available to you. The finance providers will contact you directly, and you will then need to make your own choice about how to proceed.
We do not charge a fee for using our Services or our Site, but we may receive a commission (either a fixed fee or a fixed percentage of the amount you borrow) from finance providers for effecting such introductions. The commission amount may vary by finance provider, broker or product. For certain lenders we may have influence over the interest rate, and this may impact the total amount payable by you, the customer. Third-party brokers, however, may charge fees for their own brokerage services, but the broker will make this clear before proceeding.
The amount of commission we earn will be made available to you on written request to either:
