Helping you choose the right finance, at the right time.

Whether you’re an established business or just starting out, finding the right finance product to meet your needs can be difficult.

At Lloyds Bank, we want to make it simple for you to compare and choose our products, whatever your business circumstances.

What are you looking to finance?

  • Investing for growth

    When you see an opportunity to build your business, you may require an injection of funds to fuel that next step.

    Using surplus business cash may be your first move towards funding growth. Beyond this step, there are a variety of funding options available.

    What’s best for you depends very much on your circumstances – which is why our Business Loans and Asset Finance products can be tailored to suit you.

    Business Loans to meet your needs

    Depending on your business requirements, we have a loan to suit you.

    Choose between a range of loan options including Fixed Rate and Base Rate Loans.

    • Fixed Rate Loan: Borrow £1,000+ over 1-25 years (depending on loan amount, term restrictions may vary). With a fixed interest rate, you can be certain of your monthly repayment costs and can budget accordingly.*
    • Base Rate Loan: Borrow £1,000+ over 1-25 years. Linked to the Bank of England bank rate, the interest you pay will change as the bank rate changes.
