Capital Box is a division of the European finance company Ferratum Group, which is publicly traded on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and operates in over 24 countries worldwide. It has offices in Stockholm, Helsinki, Vilnius, Copenhagen, Perth and Liverpool. It’s a direct lender not a broker.
Capital Box says it aims to provide loans to companies faster and more often than more traditional financial institutions. There are no interviews or paperwork, and no need to provide collateral as security. Capital Box will consider your business’s performance and its ability to make the repayments, as well as its credit rating when making a decision on a loan.

All Capital Box loans are unsecured, meaning you will not have to use any assets such as real-estate as security. You will, however, be asked to provide a personal guarantee for the loan.
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 any advertised “representative APR”.
Once you decide to take out a loan, Capital Box will charge you a small percentage of the amount you borrow as an “origination” fee.
You should only apply for an Capital Box loan if you’re certain you can meet the repayment terms. You must also have a dedicated business bank account and meet the following eligibility criteria:
|Minimum trading requirement||12 months|
|Additional eligibility info||All owners of your company must be UK residents and it must not be a sole proprietorship.|
You can repay your loan early at any time – Capital Box won’t charge you for settling early, and you’ll only pay interest for the time the loan is outstanding.
