It takes five minutes from start to finish. We're designed with small businesses in mind, so we'll just need the basics about your business to make a decision.
We'll approve you based on your business performance. You transfer as much as you need to your bank account, and the funds will typically be in your account in hours.
We don't charge early repayment fees: we only charge interest for the days you have the money. If you need more funds, applying for a top up is easy. As your business grows your credit limit will too.
We’ll only charge interest on your outstanding balance for the days you’re using your loan – no hidden fees, no long-term commitments. Our rates start at 2% a month, depending on your business.
Total repayment of £11,197(3.33% interest rate per 30 days)
Borrow up to £200,000
For up to 12 months
This loan calculator is only an example, your actual rate will vary based on your circumstances. Here’s another example. If you borrowed £10,000 for 12 months at 49% representative APR, with an interest rate of 40% p.a. (variable), then, all in all, the total amount you’d repay would be £12,294.
Looking to borrow for more than 12 months or need a larger amount? Explore our longer term finance options for your business.
You'll only pay interest for the days you have your funds. No hidden fees or charges.

You think you’ve thought of everything, then something else crops up. That’s where iwoca came in, to help us bridge those gaps.
When you’re a small business you need to move fast. Dealing with banks is a long process. Dealing with iwoca was definitely a lot more efficient.
iwoca’s funding allowed us to get on with the job, when otherwise we would have run into a brick wall. It’s a friendly relationship. The simplest possible process with the greatest help.
With iwoca, we could keep investing in kit, equipment and a new facility. So we could keep our standards high.
iwoca was definitely the simplest loan I’ve ever taken out in my life. Last year we launched our product in Tescos and needed more working capital. iwoca helped us do that.
What I like about iwoca is the quick turnaround. It gives you a sense of security.
We fund all types of business, from cafés to car dealers, from salons to solicitors, from Aberdeen to Yarmouth and everywhere in-between.
We have a good relationship with our bank, but the bank moves really slowly. That’s why iwoca is so useful. They’re very fast and very responsive.
The process has been easy, uncomplicated and very quick. Their service is excellent with regular contact and support. I highly recommend this company for any business that needs finance.
With iwoca's reasonable rates and amazing staff, we were able to quickly obtain a loan to purchase equipment before our grand opening. Sophie was very supportive and walked us through the process.
The speed at which iwoca can respond to us is critically important for us to put on a fantastic program. They understand that you can blend technology with that human interaction.
iwoca was a breath of fresh air. We got an okay on our loan within a couple of days and they went above and beyond to help me get our project off the ground.
Borrowing for business can be intimidating but iwoca have always been on hand for me to provide flexible options. They take the stress out of cash-flow issues and allow you to focus on what you do best.
Here are some questions our customers ask. If there’s anything we haven’t covered here, check our FAQ
We only run soft credit checks which means applying won’t affect your credit score. But if you decide to draw down funds from us, the loan will show up on your credit report.
Yep, some of our customers repay early to save on interest. If you want to make extra repayments or pay off your loan early we won't charge you any fees. We don’t believe in hidden fees either, so you’ll never find any sneaky small print surprises.
Even though we offer loans, we’re not a bank. We’re an independent company custom-built for small businesses – and our goal is to provide straightforward access to finance where and when your business needs it.
Once you've paid back a third of your original credit limit, applying for a top up is easy. We'll just need updated information about your business.
