“Excellent development tool”

Written on: 21/05/2016 by Aronh353 (1 review written)

I bought the 349 membership and got a passcode that gave me access to loads of funding schemes. I then got some good contacts with several funding partners and was approved for a grant to update my pollytunnel & farming equipment. I then sent them my contract & answered some questions & got my 349 back and some marketing. Feel free to ring me to verify & discuss… Read Full Review

“Don't - just don't go there!”

Written on: 05/05/2016 by RussoItalianmn462 (1 review written)

One word - don't! Anyone could easily set up a similar web-site with a collection of funding sources and 'sell' it in the same way. Ok - it could be helpful having it all on one site BUT, it is the 'selling' and promotion that is wrong. After initial interest on a short e-form, I received a call, as others did, from a lady who advised me of the cost of £349 which hadn't been mentioned anywhere else before then. She asked qualifying questions such as 'are you seeking a grant or a loan, or… Read Full Review

“Recommended to Business Startups”

Written on: 22/04/2016 by 183McDaniel (1 review written)

Im not sure why there are so many negative reviews here about the UK Funding Centre. It's obvious that the people that are posting reviews are expecting something to be given to them for free. The service and the people are great and very helpful especially the gentleman i spoke with who helped me find programmes that were good for my business. Still waiting on the government for a reply, but what do you expect from our government. I recommend the UK Business Centre to anyone looking to startup… Read Full Review

“Handy nifty little gadget”

“Devistated ”

Written on: 24/03/2016 by HaleyDowney (1 review written)

So I applied for a grant a few weeks ago, was accepted for a 45k a year grant which would mean I wouldn't have to pay it back unless I earn over that. I was so excited to be accepted I had a business plan salon premises waiting.....so I obviously paid the admin fee of £250. My friend just messaged me last night to send me some screen shots of all the reviews. I was supposed to recieve my money on the 15th April. I'm guessing that's not happening. Gutted… Read Full Review

“STAY AWAY”

Written on: 14/03/2016 by 96Dougherty (1 review written)

This is a legalised scheme and yes I have been done for £349. Did a check on google and came back as not bad site, so it seemed legal. Told them the details of my BP and said a brilliant idea and we have a lot of grants you can apply for, paid and waited till I got log on details.......... guess what? waste of time and money. Next day called them back but the woman I spoke to was not available and all I got was I am just the receptionist! Phoned the bank and stopped the payment going… Read Full Review

So sorry to hear of your experience here, I had also contacted them regarding my ideas and when they said 'membership fee' a red flag went up in my mind and I was cautious. I thought to dig deeper and you came up in my search, so thank you to you, even though at your expense, please know you have made a difference. Best of luck to you. Mel

Good luck with your business plan and use your local chamber of commerce. They can advise on the grants and loans you can apply for on your area!

I should have done that first!

I was looking for funding to assist me to buy my commercial property and I called these people, SOUNDED GREAT but then they asked for £349, I googled UK Business Funding and found this. AVOID at all costs. The people behind these businesses should be sent to prison and have ALL their assets frozen. Thanks to everyone for helping me not fall victim… Read Full Review

Thank you for your review. We’re sorry that your experience did not match your expectations. Should you wish to discuss the specifics about your account, please contact the representative you spoke to or reply to the email providing your online log in access with the best time and number to reach you. Often times it is not until you've been turned down, that an application gets approved. That is why there is a one year membership to our database, so even if you're not eligible today, as funding schemes and pots close, there are always new funding options being created to provide investment into jobs and infrastructure.

Kind Regards,
