Our solutions give businesses the confidence and ability to take the next step in their journey, whether it be a new start business looking for a cashflow boost, or a long-established operation planning to complete an acquisition to push their business to the next level. From credit-managed facilities to help owner managers grow their business, or confidential turnkey facilities, we have a solution to suit the needs of each business we deal with.

We’re part of the Skipton Group, where the core ethos is to build stronger relationships with the people, customers and the communities we serve. At SBF, we share that mission and we pride ourselves on the exceptional client care we provide, whilst constantly striving to keep our customers’ needs at the centre of every decision we make.
