According to BLS data; approximately 20% of all newly fledged business ventures fail within the first two years of being operating, 45% fail during the first five years, and 65% during the first 10 years. This means just a quarter of newly formed businesses make it past the 15 years mark.

The key reasons for new businesses failing comes down to mainly cashflow. Commercial finance can be the make or break for businesses in Chester by allowing them to try and grow, purchase now machinery or upgrade on current business operations and business systems.

Typically, a business will need 2-years of trading in order to have access to commercial loans, however, the UK Government does offer grants and loans to businesses under this threshold provided the business owner is happy to take a personal guarantee to secure the finances.

 Lenders will also consider companies formed within 2-years if they are willing to put down collateral against the loan as insurance. For example, you may be asked to back the loan against personal possessions or assets such as your car or your mortgage.
