Skipton Business Finance Limited, founded in 2001, provides an array of financial products ranging from invoice factoring to invoice discounting, including the Government-backed Enterprise Finance Guarantee Scheme, and asset finance to SMEs from new-start to businesses turning over £30m.
Our facilities can be used to fund start-ups, transactions, turnaround/restructures, phoenix and pre-pack type deals. SBF is all about having quick access to flexible funding, employing specialist staff and having localised functions under one roof which enables even closer relationships with our clients and business partners in the region.
We are a wholly owned subsidiary of Skipton Building Society, an undoubted mutual financial institution established in 1853.
With no expensive shareholder dividends to pay, the ethos of Skipton Business Finance is very much focussed on understanding their clients’ businesses and assisting in creating wealth and jobs in the regions, rather than purely for profit. This naturally leads to a partnership approach with their clients and a specifically designed internal structure whereby the client can enjoy close and personable relationships with highly-trained and experienced staff as well as systems and processes designed to better the experience of its interaction with the financier.
What the Future Holds
Skipton Business Finance continues to be a UK-leading financier in the invoice finance market and is keen to maintain its position as a major, client- focussed organisation in the UK. We will continue to grow and develop our client-oriented business model whilst entering into new geographical areas through acquisition and natural expansion.
