Capify business loans

Capify offers business finance to SMEs that is paid back little and often, rather than in larger monthly instalments.

Last updated:


Capify is a direct lender launched in 2008 when it merged its previous names of United Kapital and Capiota.

From its headquarters in Manchester, Capify provides finance to UK businesses from independents to SMEs, and retailers to restaurants. Whether you choose a business loan or a cash advance, the credit is paid back daily or weekly.

In January 2019, Capify secured a £75 million credit facility from Goldman Sachs Private Capital to help it provide working capital to SMEs.

Whether you’d like to pay for new equipment or an office refurbishment, or you need a cash boost to take your business to the next level, Capify could help with fast and flexible business finance to suit your needs. It’s quick and straightforward to apply online at the Capify site.

Key features of a Capify merchant cash advance at a glance

  • Borrow £3,500 to £150,000. Borrow up to 130% of your average monthly turnover through debit and credit card sales.
  • Repay little and often. Pay back a percentage of your card transactions. The money is taken at the end of each business day, so on a slow day you pay less and on a busy day you pay more. This option eliminates the need to save for larger equal monthly repayments, which could suit seasonal businesses.
  • Dedicated account manager. Talk through your individual circumstances with just one person.
  • No fixed end date. You have the option to take out further cash advances. Just be careful not to take on credit you no longer need.
  • Fees. Capify will charge an origination fee, processing fee and a monthly service fee. Make sure you check the total amount you will repay before agreeing to a cash advance.

  • Take at least £3,500 per month in card payments.
  • Have at least six months’ trading records.

Interest rates are fixed for the duration of your repayment period. However, the rate you’re offered will depend on factors like the amount you apply for, the term of the loan, the performance of your business and its credit rating. This may differ from the advertised “Representative APR”.
