In the new financial world beyond the ‘credit crunch’ the vast majority of Business and Personal clients are faced with significantly fewer funding options and often a point blank refusal from their existing bankers.

These funding partners rely on us to introduce new and well qualified business opportunities for underwriting approval. These include Merchant Banks, Private Funding Groups, Investment Trusts and high net worth Personal Investors - all keen to lend to the right proposition.
We assist clients on a “no funds no fee policy” - if we don’t find funding you never pay us a penny. We also work with referral fees.

Make money work for your business
Our mission is simple: We’re here to help smaller businesses get the finance they need with as little fuss as possible.
A short-term business loan can cover costs including, but not limited to stock purchases, Tax and VAT payments and business insurances over a 3-12 month term.
For businesses looking for a broader range of investment, our business development loan can help to spread the cost of areas such as refurbishment, research, training, marketing and acquisitions, over an extended 12 month to 5 year term.
Additionally, our equipment finance solutions let you invest in the equipment you need to operate efficiently and effectively. Typically, finance is secured on the assets through a lease making it easier for businesses to achieve the funding they need.
Whatever your industry, our award-winning finance can help you - even if you have had trouble getting finance in the past. In fact, we accept 4 out of every 5 applications, with funds in your account in as little as 24 hours (48 hours for asset finance).
LEA Financial Services Ltd
We are a local financial advice firm that operates across the UK. We advise on and arrange personal and commercial mortgages, loans and protection (insurance). We are Directly authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and members of the National Association of Finance Brokers.
We are a 'whole of market' brokerage with access to hundreds of lenders and aim to assist whatever your circumstances. If we are unable to help it will be because there is no financial solution available but this is rare. In some cases and after consultation, we can connect our clients to other providers who may offer a service that we believe is more suitable. Please ask about this.
We have access to solicitors, surveyors and other professional service providers and can instruct them on your behalf, if you wish.
Liberis provides simple, no-nonsense finance for small businesses. We do this responsibly and transparently, with a team of specialists who know our sectors inside and out.
In 2007 Liberis filled a gap in the way small businesses were funded – there was no product specifically designed to help small businesses in the hospitality, retail and automotive sectors. Our answer is the Business Cash Advance, a simple advance of cash based on future credit and debit card sales.
We fund from £2,500 to £300,000 to limited companies, partnerships and sole traders. We understand that fixed repayments don’t work for a lot of small businesses – which is why we link repayments directly to cash flow.
We’ve helped over 3,300 small businesses up and down the UK, and provided over £110m in funding.
Our team brings together some of the best and brightest from across the finance sector. We know small businesses and know how to work with them to help them grow.
Lighthouse Workplace Solutions
Lighthouse Workplace Solutions provides a 5-star rated workplace pension that integrates with the payroll software used by your business or organisation’s payroll provider, and can also give employees death-in-service benefits life insurance.

What happens next? We can provide you with a detailed comparison of costs, together with a consultation to look at:
- Your business objectives and budget for workplace pension provision
- Discuss the level of benefits for employees and the business
- Confirm pensionable earnings definitions, eligibility, and contribution rates
