An online directory of about 1,000 sources of commercial finance has been compiled by trade bodies representing alternative funding sources at www.smallbusinessfinancedirectory.co.uk/
The directory lists sources of commercial finance for small businesses, including leasing and hire purchase arrangements, commercial mortgages, and invoice discounting and factoring. It includes banks and other finance companies providing finance direct to small businesses and commercial finance brokers who act as introducers. Users can search for local or national providers. The directory listings show whether or not the finance companies or brokers are members of the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) or the Finance and Leasing Association (FLA).
