A small business loan is a cash loan that helps small business owners access finance to help expand their business and cover operational costs. Forbes Advisor carried out research to identify the best loans available for small businesses. To arrive at their star ratings, they considered numerous criteria to judge small business loan providers and shortlist a few providers.

The criteria used to shortlist

The team of seasoned financial journalists at Forbes Advisor looked at in depth into multiple factors before naming their top six. They looked at the Annual Percentage Rates (APR), the size of the loan that could be borrowed, the length of repayment periods and other differentiating factors such as fees, early repayment charges, turnover requirements among many other factors before deciding on the ‘Best Small Business Loans of 2022’.  After rigorous research the team have found six providers that are the best for small business loans, with the British Business Bank’s Start Up Loan scheme coming out on top.
