Skipton Business Finance Limited, founded in 2001, provides an array of financial products ranging from 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.
Independent of the main banks, we provide a strong and recognisable brand whilst allowing a diversity of funding which gives greater stability to our clients' businesses. With no expensive shareholder dividends to pay, the ethos of our business is very much focused on understanding our clients' businesses and assisting in creating wealth and jobs in the regions, rather than purely profit.
This naturally leads to a partnership approach with our clients, where our success is determined by their success.
