Start Up Loans

Starting a new business is challenging particularly when you need to raise funds.

Start up loans are now available for entrepreneurs looking to start a business in Wales through the Start Up Loans Company

The Start Up Loans Company is a UK-wide, government backed scheme, which offers a repayable loan to individuals over the age of 18 who have a viable business but no access to finance. The scheme funds businesses in every sector.  As well as financial backing all loan recipients are given access to a mentor, free training events and exclusive business offers.

Business in Focus is part of a network of official Start Up Loans delivery partners across the UK who administer the scheme.  We are here to guide you through the application process, including advice on creating a business plan and cash flow forecast.  If you receive a loan we will then support you through your journey, providing you with your business mentor for 12 months from the date of receiving your loan.

Start Up Loans are available for businesses yet to launch or those that have been trading for up to 24 months.

The Start Up Loans scheme offers low cost, unsecured loans of between £500 and £25,000 (the average loan is £4,000) with a fixed interest rate, currently 6%.

The Start Up Loan is not a grant and loans are to be paid back within 5 years (the exact loan period to be agreed).

Successful or not, you will not be charged a fee for making a Start Up Loan application. If you have been charged a fee, please inform the Start Up Loans Company of this or write to with details.

When you apply for a loan, your application will be assessed individually based on the information you provide, a credit check obtained from a Credit Reference Agency and our internal credit policy. As a responsible lender, we are committed to ensuring any loan offer made is affordable. Your credit history will therefore be considered and your existing financial position taken into account. When an application is declined we will inform you why your application could not be approved.
