This data is based on insight from UK brokers who collectively submitted over 2,500 applications for unsecured finance on behalf of their SME clients in March 2023.

Showing data from Q1 2022 onwards. See archive for earlier results.

*From Q1 21 until Q1 23, we had these four options instead of "Cost of finance": "Monthly repayment amount", "Total cost of borrowing", "APR", "Monthly interest rate". In Q1 23 we removed these options and added "cost of finance". We've added up the four old options to provide historical data for the new "cost of finance" category, as all four of the options were related to cost.
