Written on: 06/12/2016 by Bates237 (1 review written)

They lie and mislead you for a database and then tell you no refunds if you log in. Do not log in if you paid and you will get a refund. If you have paid call them take notes of every call attempt and report them to every organization possible… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/11/2016 by Harperll380 (1 review written)

There database is worthless I paid 375 pounds and was told there's grants and was given codes that were useless and already closed. I talked to my council and they said there's no schemes I called them and spoke to an American guy who gave some useless expired links. I called my bank and they said they would give me my money back and saw they are registered in Ireland. Complete sham. Avoid and beware… Read Full Review

“I got ripped off by these”

Written on: 07/11/2016 by Duggancl157 (1 review written)

People and now they wont pick up my calls or speak to me. The woman I spoke to promised me grants and a mentor and once they have your money forget about it. Now she wont pick up my calls and just transfers me to a voicemail saying customer service. I have spoken to my bank to cancel the transaction action fraud and rip off Britain and am now submitting a money claim form through the gov website… Read Full Review

“Minefields of money and matter ”

Written on: 31/10/2016 by BrielleLevesque (1 review written)

Helpful info that gives you loads of information and different funding streams for your business. Unfortunately for some of the grants they require a portion of your business in return as an investment angel. But at the end of the day a great tool to raise much needed capital and get the ball rolling for our business… Read Full Review

“Does what it says”

Written on: 03/10/2016 by DeMelo1 (1 review written)

After approaching UKBFC, the procedure was explained in the simplest manner and after paying for the database, it was accessible within hours. After finding the right grant for us we applied and within 6 weeks we were awarded £12,000. A fantastic service that literally does what it says. Can't recommend highly enough… Read Full Review

“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. Stay away from these guys they are a complete sham. Stop & think - they call themselves UK Government Grants (to… 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

Thank you to the ukbf for helping me in my search… Read Full Review

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.
