“They operate under multiple website names. All claim...”

Written on: 29/09/2016

They operate under multiple website names. All claim to have opportunities of grants etc from data bases but you have to pay up front (no refund policy) before they sent you their data base. The list of possible grants they send you is junk, totally irrelevant & a complete waste of time. I forced a refund out of them by personally visiting their registered accountants in London and threatening them. Stay away from these guys they are a complete sham. Stop & think - they call themselves UK… Read Full Review

“Plenty of data”

Written on: 15/09/2016 by AidynButcher (1 review written)

This database of grants and loans is very comprehensive. They are very dependant, however, upon the area you live in, the size of your company and if you offer something specialised. If you are looking for a grant for a small business then this may not be for you… Read Full Review

“everything I needed and more”

Written on: 31/08/2016

I stumbled upon this website on my search for government grants. I did a preliminary search with the agent on the phone and uncovered some possible programs to apply for. Upon contacting some of them I learned I met part of the criteria but not all. Ultimately I got approved for a start up loan which helped me raise the funds… Read Full Review

“Helpful mentor and funding”

Written on: 29/08/2016 by Rhettk1992 (1 review written)

I saw this companies website and called the number on it. I spoke to a friendly young man who directed me to purchase a membership. I paid a fee of 350 pounds and got their database on which I used the keyword search to be connected to a mentor in sutton who then forwarded me to getting a grant. Thank you to the ukbf for helping me in my search… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/08/2016 by RandyHiggins (1 review written)

I 1st was introduced to the UK business funding center through google as my business was looking for appropriate funding so we could take our business to the next level. I rang up and spoke with a lady who took me through exactly what the company did and how it would benefit my company to sign up with them promising me funding, support and help through there business. After receiving the information that they stated they would give me i sent over the 350 pounds signing up fee to get things… Read Full Review

“UK Business Funding Centre ”

Written on: 22/08/2016 by SaniyaThornton (1 review written)

This is an appalling service and should be shut down. I was looking for a grant to set up a business. While looking for funding for a Start Up Business I mistakenly thought that the UK Business Funding Centre was handling the funding for the Government. On My initial inquiry I spoke to a lady in customer service, She took my details and information about my Business Plans, and advised once I had paid my £350.00 fee I would be able to apply for a grant and with it being only a small amount… Read Full Review

Firstly I am so sorry you have lost all your money, and secondly I thank you for writing your experience on here, as I spoke to a lady in customer services yesterday, and I was a bit wary of the whole scheme but was about to enrol until I read this. Now they keep pestering me, I am so glad I didn't give my money away... I hope you can get your money back some how even if you go to citizen advice.. They must be shut down as you say.. Good luck with everything you do in the future and thanks for your honesty... Regards

Thank you for your message. I'm just glad it's stopped more people from doing the same thing. I've got an appointment with citizens advice next week. I'm reporting them to rip off Britain and the ombusman they need to be stopped.

“This Company is in NO WAY affiliated with the Government”

Written on: 11/08/2016 by Bevannel (1 review written)

While looking for funding for a Start Up Business we mistakenly thought that the UK Business Funding Centre was Government affiliated. During our telephone conversation the Government was mentioned numerous times. This led me to falsely believe that ALL the funding available was linked to the UK government. The customer service operator also led us to believe there was plenty of funding for a Start Up Business AND funding towards a Trading License. None of this was the case. Once we had… Read Full Review

Do not use. Useless access to database not worth the phone call let alone £349. I am pursuing a refund, reporting to Trading Standards and various other financial watchdogs.

“Very happy!”

Written on: 27/07/2016 by mcawood (1 review written)

Acquiring funding for new business is a daunting task, with so many schemes having restrictions which limit the available sources. The vast database offered by UKBFC enabled me to discover schemes I could not have known about by other means. Knowing that a refund was obtainable upon securing funding made me all the more determined and I am happy to say that within just a few months, I had not only the loan I needed but also an invaluable local mentoring resource… Read Full Review

“Is this a bone fide firm..... I doubt it?”

Written on: 21/07/2016 by oliva123 (1 review written)

I paid my £349 to them in March since when I have sent emails & made numerous phone calls which they only answer when I keep on pestering. When they do answer they say they will send me an email. When they do they point you in the direction of the main site you access anyway & which is so vague it is of no help at all. I am at present waiting to receive an email giving specific directions. This was supposed to have been sent to me a week ago & I am still waiting. My phone calls have been… Read Full Review

I thoroughly agree. They have missold me this service. It is a total waste of time. The 'grant information' they provided is not relevent to me, useless and some out of date and could be found in a 10 minute google search. I am indeed interested in pursuing this to the ends of the earth. I have asked my bank to step in and try to claim back the money through the bank. Please contact me.
