Accessing Business Finance

At Business Durham, we can point you in the direction of a number of funds and programmes which can deliver support to you, whether you want to access finance of £5,000 or £2m plus. There are also a multitude of regional and national loan schemes available.

Our regional venture capital funds are particularly designed to suit innovative companies, such as the Growth Fund; and the Growth Fund Plus.

R&D expenditure credit schemes provide support to a wide range of industries and will provide additional relief of £1.1bn to innovative companies over the next five years. This, together with the patent box relief, provides a strong package of support for innovation in the UK and a boost to global competitiveness.

The British Business Bank is wholly owned by HM Government and, working with over 80 partners uses its funds to unlock finance for thousands of smaller UK businesses.
