Professional Services Loans

Fleximize offers flexible business funding to law firms, architects, and other companies operating in the professional services sector

The UK's professional services sector is diverse, covering everything from accountants and architects to lawyers and IT consultants.

In exchange for their expertise, these firms can set their fees at a premium. However, it's a competitive area, and businesses face many financial challenges as they strive to stay ahead. High salaries are commonplace, while overheads, such as prime office locations and industry-leading technology, call for big budgets.

These factors can make it hard to grow a business without being well-capitalized. Our professional services loans are designed to alleviate some of the pressure, offering firms the financial resources to develop their offering. Read about how they work and whether your business is eligible to apply below.

What are professional services loans?

Professional services loans are financial products for businesses that offer customized, knowledge-based services to clients. Given the high running costs and evolving market expectations that SMEs must overcome, external finance helps companies stay ahead of the game.

Securing tailored funding for architects, legal experts, and other specialists allows businesses to invest in growth. It can also provide a critical cash buffer when managing the short-term fluctuations of project-based revenue. For businesses that only receive payment once the work is complete, a business loan is often essential to acquire new clients and grow a portfolio.

Whether you want to enhance your customer experience, cover lost client revenue, or finance a merger, Fleximize’s funding can help.

How our professional business loans work

We've designed our loans to help address the obstacles that SMEs encounter in the competitive professional services industry. Our products are packed with flexible features to help you develop a successful business, including top-ups and repayment holidays.

We offer unsecured and secured options through our Flexiloan and Flexiloan Lite products, which you can read more about on our business loans page. Here's a quick summary of what we offer:

Our tech-focused, relationship-driven approach gives businesses the best of both worlds: fast funding and first-class service. Unlike traditional lenders, we'll often lend to companies with a less-than-perfect credit history if there's growth potential. We also make decisions in a matter of hours, not weeks, so you can move quickly to protect your business' future.

If your business has traded for at least six months and shows positive revenue growth, we'll happily consider your business for funding.
