Some facts you didn’t know about business in Scotland
Scotland has more private sector businesses than ever
It’s home to over 30,000 professional, scientific, and technical businesses
This is by far the largest sector in Scotland, followed by construction.

Aberdeen Harbour Board was founded in 1136, and has been vital to Scottish trade for 900 years.
Distilleries are big business
Scottish distilleries had an average turnover of £5.3 million in 2018, providing nine in ten distilling jobs, and growing 69% since 2010.

Helping local businesses with Business Loans Scotland
Capify has been behind small British businesses for over 10 years, helping retailers, restaurants, salons, and other service businesses raise affordable, easy finance. Our friendly team is based in Altrincham, south Manchester, which is home to its very own award-winning independent high street.
Capify believes every independent business should be able to grow, expand, and make essential improvements. With flexible finance, you could refurbish your premises, invest in brand new equipment, splash out on award-winning staff training, or fill your shelves with shiny new stock. Whatever you need to do to, Capify can help you raise flexible, affordable funding to make it happen.
How does the Capify Business Loan work?
We know that many businesses in Scotland, England, and Wales find it tough to afford expensive monthly repayments, and this can hold them back from raising crucial business finance. Instead of repaying your loan in fixed amounts, you can make small daily or weekly repayments.
You can raise £5,000 to over £150,000 with Capify, then pay off the loan in small daily or weekly payments over 6 to 12 months. Whatever works best.

What Scotland-based businesses can do with a Business Loan
Refurbishment and renovation
Time to start knocking down walls, installing shelves, and choosing paint colours. Renovation can transform how you and your customers use your business premises, creating more space and becoming a more comfortable place to be.
Don’t let admin slow you down. Install software and upgrade to tools that automate the most time-consuming processes. This includes POS systems, appointment booking, stock ordering, staff rota management, and more.
With the right education, your staff can keep innovating, serve more customers, and create even better services and products. Customer service is the main thing online reviewers praise or criticise, so it’s important to have the right team working with you.
Marketing and advertising
Tell the world what you do, both online and offline. With a Capify Business Loan, you can invest in the best digital marketing to increase your website traffic and bricks-and-mortar customers.
