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.

“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

“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

“Start up loan and nea”

I got a mentor thru the West Midlands county scheme and they provided me with a 1,000 pound grant. My advisor then mentioned to me that I am eligible for the start up loan to raise the remaining capital needed to buy stock and equipment. I thank the ukbf for their knowledge and expertise and helping me out, much appreciated!… 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.

“Managed to get what I needed”

Written on: 19/07/2016 by JefferyStuart84 (1 review written)

I was searching for funding and was lost. I had received an email from this organization advising me of different businesses in my area that received funding. They gave an 0800 number and when I called I spoke to a nice young lady. She gave me some codes that I could be eligible for. Upon paying for a link I entered those codes and got lucky with what I had found. A lot of the funding isn't made clearly but I thank that young girl for her help and the links which allowed me fo receive my… Read Full Review

Do not.. I repeat DO NOT give this so called company any money. They should be closed down. They do not abide by the Consumer Rights Act 2015, nor do they comply with the Distance Selling Regulations. Please go elsewhere for your funding!!! Any links to funding they provide are either inappropriate, Invalid or non-existent. … Read Full Review

I came accross this company during my search for business funding. I submitted my details and received a call back from a friendly lady. She explained to me the different options and told me about the sf 500 form which gives people money for expenses to get business funding. I applied and got approved for 400 pounds. She told me to get more schemes to sign up and pay a fee… Read Full Review

There are various government websites you can access completely free where you can find out information on starting a business and finding funding to help. You can probably access more information in an hour of internet searches than this company will provide for their £349 fee!! … Read Full Review
