Support for companies requesting financial assistance

Small business support platform Enterprise Nation has expanded its SME Funding Hub to include access to support for applying for and claiming R&D tax credits and applying for mortgage, protection, pension and investments, in a one-stop shop for financing small businesses.

The new hub builds on existing functionality offered by Capitalise, the business finance platform, which gives small businesses free access to their commercial credit profile, the ability to manage their customers’ risk profiles and access affordable business loans, all in one place.

The hub now offers additional financing services through R&D tax credit specialist, Claim Capital; and CMME, which specializes in helping start-ups and entrepreneurs access the most effective mortgages and protection, pensions and investments, through a network of experienced advisors and their sister company Contractor wealth.

Emma Jones, Founder of Enterprise Nation, said, “Small business founders are busy people. They are often too busy running the business to seek out the best financial support or interview a range of suppliers. This hub gives them an equal opportunity to have access to a range of excellent experts in their field, all in one place.

Max Raynor, Managing Director of Claim Capital, said: “The government aims to increase UK research and development spending from its current level of 1.7% to 2.4% by 2027. Raising awareness and improving access for the small business community is going to be key. to achieve this goal and unlock innovation.

“Our partnership with Enterprise Nation on the Finance hub will help us achieve this.”

CMME’s Mike Coshott said, “Applying for and getting the right mortgage can be very difficult and complex for small business founders and self-employed people. Often, the financing they are entitled to in the traditional brokerage system is expensive, which penalizes them for having a more complex income or not having a conventional PAYE job. The same goes for pensions and wealth management.

“Fortunately, there are better offers and solutions. And this Finance Hub will give small business owners access to some very competitive options that work with running a business.

The SME Finance Hub curates relevant lending options and advice and provides specifically targeted information directly to businesses seeking support, as well as one-stop-shop access for SME finance needs.
