Unsecured Business Loan

Get the funds your business needs

Many business owners look to banks as their only funding option when it comes to obtaining a small business loan. However, it is often difficult for small businesses to source the finance they need from banks because of their rigid credit policies.

Thankfully, an Adelpha Unsecured Business Loan provides a simple, fast and flexible alternative form of finance.

Our Unsecured Business Loan is designed to be a simple, fast, and fair form of finance. You could receive between £3,000 and £150,000. Your business cash-flows will not be interrupted as the Unsecured Business Loan is repaid by a weekly or monthly payment plan pre-agreed to align with your business cash-flows.

Our Unsecured Business Loan does not restrict how you spend the advanced funds in your business as we are here to improve your cash flow, not run your business.

Banks can take a long time to decide on a loan application. However, at Adelpha there is no lengthy application process and, once you have provided us with the information we need, we can make a final decision within a working day.

Who can apply for a Unsecured Business Loan?

To be eligible, we typically require you to have been in business for at least 12 months, have a UK based majority ownership and an average monthly revenue over £3,000.

​Some of the benefits are:

  • Apply in minutes for £3,000 – £150,000 and get a decision within two working days

  • A simple and hassle-free application with a high approval rate

  • Repayments tailored to match your business cash-flows

  • A fixed cost of funding that is agreed upfront

  • No hidden fees or charges

How does it work?

Our Unsecured Business Loan is an advance of cash you can repay via weekly or monthly payments for up to 36 months.


Repayments are tailored to your business cash-flows. Unlike many other forms of business funding, an Unsecured Business Loan is an unsecured way of accessing finance which means charges over the company or your assets aren’t required. We require a personal guarantee, but this should not be a problem given we deal with small businesses in which owners have a personal stake and believe in the business’s future.

  • Can you provide funding if my credit history is less than perfect?
    Yes. We consider each application on an individual basis and assess if an Unsecured Business Loan is right for your business based on its individual circumstances and outlook - not just your credit history. We are committed to acting responsibly, so we urge you to think carefully about financial products for your business and seek appropriate advice when making decisions.

    We understand that no business is the same, so out pricing is unique to each application. Our interest rate starts at 1.9% per month. For your own bespoke price, you can apply for a free no obligation quote online without impacting your personal credit score.
  • Do we need to pay anything upfront?
    No, there are no costs to apply for a Unsecured Business Loan
  • What credit checks do you perform?
    We will use a number of different sources of information to help us understand your business. With your permission we check your company and consumer credit information through Credit Reference Agencies. Our search is recorded as a 'soft footprint', so it does not have an adverse impact on your credit score.
  • What documents do I need to apply?
    We require at least 6 months bank statements - preferably submitted via Open Banking - and the last filed accounts. In some cases, we may ask for additional information.
  • Do you take any security or collateral?
    An Unsecured Business Loan is a way of accessing finance without any asset security. We do require a Personal Guarantee(s) from the directors / owners of the business.
  • What is a personal guarantee and how does it work?
    You should take legal advice if you have any concerns or questions about the terms of your personal guarantee. The guarantee is a promise to pay all your company's liabilities to Adelpha, meaning that if your company misses a payment, the guarantor may be required to repay the company's funding in full. Given we deal with small businesses in which the owners have a personal stake and believe in their success, providing a personal guarantee should not be a problem.
  • How do I pay back?
    You repay by pre-agreed payments based on your business cashflows. The payments are automatically deducted from your business bank account by direct debit so you don’t have to worry about missing due dates.
  • Can I repay early?
    Yes! After 6 months you can repay in full with no additional fees or interest charged.
  • What if I cannot make a payment?
    We are a responsible lender at all times, and provide loans only to businesses deemed able to repay. However, we recognise that sometimes our customers find their situation changes or they are struggling to repay. In such circumstances, the most important thing is to speak to your account manager on 02071128123 who will work with you to find a way forward.
  • I already have business funding through Adelpha, can I apply for more?
    Yes, we will consider more funding provided you have met your payments on time and your business continues to perform. As we already have your details, it is an even simpler and shorter process. You may need to provide updated bank statement or other documents before we fund more. Contact your account manager to discuss your further funding needs.
  • Do you partner with brokers and other introducers?
    Yes. Brokers find it easy to work with Adelpha. We are committed to growing our network of brokers and are open to forming a relationship with new business introducers. Please contact us on or 02071128123 to find out more.
