With commercial finance, it is always important to consider every kind finance possible to determine the most suitable for your requirements.

As well as long term loans and credit, bridging finance might also be a good fit. It is particularly useful when a business is in need of flexibility. A short term line of credit to deal with certain expenses or to purchase capital whilst waiting for a future expected amount of cash money to arrive. This can often be more preferable than a business tying itself in to a longer, more drawn out contractual obligation.

Usually a commercial bridging loan will be used on a short term basis. However, bridging loans can often run between periods of two weeks and up to three years. “Open” bridging solutions are used when the borrower doesn’t know exactly when the required funds will be required by.

Most UK businesses will, at some point in their lifespan, need some short-term funding. The reasons will usually differ, but they will expect a lump sum to be arriving at a specific time. This is why it is called a bridging loan. It ‘bridges’ the gap between the date you make the purchase and the day you acquire the lump sum.

What are you using as security?

Before contacting a broker or a lender you will need to be clear of what you are willing to use as security on your bridging loan. Commercial bridging finance is a secured type of borrowing. Common examples of security are property, land or other business assets such as stocks. Whilst an upper limit isn’t something you will usually find with bridging finance, it is still important to limit the loan size to only what is necessary.

How long will it be needed for?

You will also need to know how long you will be needing the loan for before you speak to a broker or a lender. Most finance deals like this are designed to be very short term. Lenders will want to know the term as well as having a clear idea of what your exit strategy is.


Bridging loans tend to have interest rates quoted on a monthly basis. Interest rates will tend to start at 1%. This is why bridge funding is usually short term. Longer term approaches can be very costly.
