For almost 15 years, Capify has worked closely with the hospitality sector, providing business owners with much-needed funding. We’ve been there through some difficult times – like the 2008 recession and Covid-19, and have continued to lend even when the banks have said no.
We’ve recently conducted a Confidence Survey and found that cash flow and cash reserves are key concerns for business owners across the UK. Over half of those who responded also said they lack confidence in their existing banking partners to meet any future borrowing needs.
We’re proud to have created an accessible business loan which is both quick and easy to apply for, and, once approved, the funds can be paid out in as little as 24 hours.

Unsecured business loans are a type of funding that doesn’t require the business to put up any personally owned and business-owned assets up as collateral. This differs from secured business loans, which require the finance to be backed by an asset of some type.
Because no assets are secured against an unsecured loan, it’s a requirement in the majority of cases that the person taking out the loan – the borrower – has an excellent credit rating. This positive credit rating should be in addition to a full, excellent financial history and a well-researched and planned forecast for cash flow. This helps the lender to identify the risk of lending to the business, as well as checking if the required payment would be possible and sustainable for the business.
Unsecured loans, especially business loans, are suitable for any type of business. They are especially useful for companies that have few tangible assets or have little of value to provide as security for a loan. These types of businesses are more and more common, with many digital companies, in particular, having few assets to place against a loan.
While a secured small business loan works on the basis of the borrower lending against assets they already own – whether it’s equipment, property or anything else – an unsecured loan takes a different approach. These types of loans work based on the lender having greater insight into the business’ incoming and outgoings, and as such may require a more in-depth process to offset that risk.
In an unsecured loan, the borrower doesn’t need to have specific collateral in place as security for the loan being accepted. Therefore, the process involves providing the lender with an overview of the cash flow of the business, as well as often requiring an understanding of what the loan will be used for. This could be equipment, staffing or any other business purpose.
Capify offer two unsecured business finance products:
1. An unsecured alternative business loan which enables limited companies to raise finance without the need to secure finance against assets.
2. A merchant cash advance which allows companies to raise finance against their card processing income. This innovative product enables businesses to repay their finance back via their card terminal, with flexible repayments designed to mirror your card income.
Finance from Capify is different in that there are small daily payments automatically debited from your bank account as opposed to having to come up with large monthly payments.
For regulatory purposes and also to manage risk, lenders need to have supporting evidence that you are who you say you are and that the information you’ve provided on your application form is
correct. The process of verification is known as underwriting. Underwriting takes place after you’ve successfully gone through the initial eligibility/approval process.
Applicants will need to provide:
– Evidence of ID
– Financial information on the business (including income, outgoings, profit, assets etc.)
– Declare outstanding credit agreements (other borrowing)
– Landlord references (if applicable)
– Any other financial information requested
Applicants will also need to successfully pass a credit check – with different business lenders each having different criteria’s for approval. Being declined by one lender doesn’t mean you will be declined by all lenders.
