“Disgusting”

Written on: 21/01/2016 by Churchill246 (1 review written)

I am absolutely disgusted in this company, its run by a bunch of females who just talk off a script and blatantly lie. Do not give any money to them, you will waste it. This company should be shut down, They have no accounts and claim to be in business 21 years, thanks god I didn't pay… Read Full Review

“WARNING!!! DON'T GO THERE”

Written on: 08/01/2016 by tawniaallcock (1 review written)

Hi just reading some these reviews and I only wish I had done this previously before I was robbed of £349.00 by this shark of a company. Please can anyone suggest advice of where I can take this further to get a refund as they are refusing to do this and also to raise awareness in an official capacity about their Immoral and misleading buisness Tawnia… Read Full Review

“Don't touch with a barge pole!!”

Written on: 20/12/2015 by ReginaldBauer195 (1 review written)

I would warn anyone who is thinking to start their own business to stay well away from the UK Business Funding Centre. They take a fee of £300 and give you a database of loan companies and funding for types of businesses that I have never even heard of and you must be based in London or the Highlands of Scotland. When I saw the database, I called up the day after for a refund as it had no relevance to my type of business. Spent an hour arguing with a guy who told me that he would not refund… Read Full Review

“Avoid”

Written on: 18/12/2015 by McDonald182 (1 review written)

Hi, I was contacted by the "government organisation" UK Business Funding Centre by a woman who said she can certainly get me a grant to start my business which I would not have to pay back. She said the grant would cover all of my start up costs and they offer up to £200k as a government scheme. She then dropped the one off payment in and said I had to pay £349 and she would send me all the information and said I would certainly get a grant to cover all of my business start up costs, she… Read Full Review

“Apalling”

Written on: 14/12/2015 by Businessminds (1 review written)

This has to be the biggest trick ever, Once you have paid your fee, they just don't bother with you anymore. I was tricked by a lady who told me I would be eligible for funding, this is not the case. They should be shut down, they claim they have been in business 23 years I really do not think so… Read Full Review

“SHOCKING THEY SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN DO NOT GIVE THEM A PENNY”

Written on: 08/12/2015 by Stephens466 (1 review written)

Stay well clear of this website who advertises aggressively to unsuspecting business owners & business starters. They are registered as .org to make you think they are the good guys? All you will end up doing is losing £350 for a useless database,a very dodgy operation, who employs personnel in a legal but not entirely moral way. They sell access to a page full of videos of people professing to have received those grants, i spoke to someone who was very nice she answered all my questions… Read Full Review

“Avoid, avoid, avoid! ”

Written on: 22/11/2015

I contacted the UK business funding centre to try and obtain some direction to get my new business up and running in October this year. I was excited at first whilst speaking to a very gently spoken and informative lady who gave praise to my business ideas and thought I would be successful in the plans I had put together. Little did I know I was being reeled in! After explaining that only the UK business funding centre had access to the database of funding available from the government coffers… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/11/2015 by AdrielZiegler465 (1 review written)

DO NOT go near these people. They get your money then never call back when you ask them to. They just send you e mails which do not get you anywhere. If they tell you they work for the governmrnt they are lying. Please DO NOT go near these people. Wish i had read tge reviews before going ahead and signing up with them. I might aswell have flushed my £349 down the toilet… Read Full Review

“Luckily I Didn't Bite The Bait”

Written on: 04/11/2015 by 1953Meredith (1 review written)

First sign of a problem was the unreal sounding person on the other end. Too well rehearsed. Second, it was just too good to be true. Third, she assured me there was no catch as the government need people off of jobseekers. So, it will only cost you £349 for access to the database. What contradiction. Fourth, she hurriedly said goodbye when I told her I cannot afford that sort of money. Luckily I had my head screwed on tight as only God knows what could have happened. My gut instincts… Read Full Review

“Spidey senses were tingling like crazy.”

Written on: 15/10/2015 by Watson18 (1 review written)

Called them for software development funding to listen to a very sweet lady who sounded exactly like a northern voice automated robot. I almost felt weird talking back to her, just felt all wrong somehow. You'd know her because she had a lisp. All went pear shaped when I saw the sly of hand sneaking for a last minute immediate payment. She was almost upset when I said I would need to get back to her. You get your login details later in the day so they can process payment before you can stop it… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/09/2015 by PerlaTrevino53 (1 review written)

New Business Grant I put in a grant search and the above organisation came up top of the searches. Being under time pressure, I called them and spoke to a representative who assured me that given my business plan and the grants available, they were sure I would be funded but like all grants, a percentage has to be paid up-front. I asked her directly, "Are you a government organisation?" She replied directly, "Yes, we are." She knowingly led me to believe that they could access funding… Read Full Review

I totally agree as I was given the same B ****** . Very deceiving. Once they have your money they not interested with giving any further help.

Their website is no difference to the FREE Government site but on being told a definate YES there are grants for our purpose which we can apply, I paid the fee and then once paid found out they were in the country and were for cattle sheds when they know we are a business based in London.
BEWARE

What upsets me is the fact that banks and credit card companies do not view this as a crime, despite the fact that the claims made by this company, so the purchaser has nowhere to go for compensation. Something needs to change in the law as to how businesses present themselves over the net and by phone, in order to protect the public. Not all of us have time or are in the right place to catch these people out. I only hope that Action Fraud shuts them down, quick.

“Dishonest”

Written on: 11/08/2015 by DennisAnderson (1 review written)

I found this organization whilst looking for funding for a new start up business, I was called last week and told I could claim grants of £139K but would need to pay them £249 upfront, today (11th August 2015) they call back telling me I can get grants of £349.274 but I would now have to pay them £349 so since last thursday (6th August 2015) the "FEE" has increased by £100 ! I declined to pay today and made an excuse for them to call again another day. Having called "Customer Services" I… Read Full Review

“Helped me stay afloat. ”

Written on: 29/07/2015 by mrochay (1 review written)

The UK Business Funding Centre is the reason my small online retail business was able to stay afloat. They were able to get us access to government funding through their database of all the different grants and loans available for many different industries, Including mine!. After getting government funding, we saw business pick up and we were able to come out of the pit that we had fallen into. … Read Full Review

Written on: 29/07/2015

They were like a raft for me which saved me from drowning in all the debt I had accumulated. After graduating from college, I searched for jobs, but couldn’t get any due to the lack of work experience and references. I worked odd jobs to support myself, but that wasn’t enough. Not only did I have to provide for the basics, I also had to repay my student loan! I decided to start my own outdoor advertisement business for which I required some grants. My uncle suggested to me that I apply for… Read Full Review

This is very inspiring, thank you for sharing. I'm finding myself in a similar position and it's very difficult to cope with...thinking about doing the same as yourself in starting a small business to eventually gain revenue. This company seems to be the simplest and easiest opportunity for finding grants that won't have to be paid back, so that I can actually gain revenue in starting up my business and eventually pay off all of my debt from school. Thanks again for sharing.

“Got wings to my business dream after getting grant”

Written on: 28/07/2015

I have tried their service in the past. I did my research before paying for their service. I found out that everyone have their own experience with them. I found mixed reviews(positive and negative) about them. So, I gave them a shot for my loan. I required loan to start my own business after my graduation and got it so easily with the help of these professionals. They made the whole process look so simple. They know their stuff very well and have good information and links in helping you… Read Full Review
