“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

“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

“This Organization has helped us every time we needed them”

Written on: 28/07/2015

My father’s experience with this organization has been wonderful. Currently, my father is running three different shops of beddings. Having three businesses of your own is not a cakewalk at all. My father already knew this organization and their modus-operandi of working. This organization had already helped him thrice for opening business in the past. This is why he directly approached them for opening his fourth business. This organization again helped him in an extremely professional way… Read Full Review

I am thankful to this organization. This organization has really turned my dream of becoming a businessman true. I have been successfully running my business for the last two years. I did not have money to start my business. I had already heard a lot about this organization. I opened their website and applied for help. I was expecting a reply from the organization within few days. I called at their customer care service number after the gap one month because I had submitted the fee. I was… Read Full Review

“Quite Helpful for my Startup Business”

Written on: 22/07/2015

I am shocked to see so many negative reviews for this company. They are professionals and they know their stuff very well. They turned out very helpful for my business. I really don't know if these guys actually duped you. When I paid for their service, they overcharged me by mistake. Within few minutes, I got an email from them stating the issue. To be honest, I wouldn't even know until I get my credit card statement. Some of you might think that I am working for this funding centre. But… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/07/2015 by Wantmymoneyback (1 review written)

This place is an absolute joke and I don't know how the manager nor the employees can even sleep at night. I have no idea how a business like this can still operate in modern Britain. You may as well take close to 300 quid and burn it. That will probably be more use to you starting a business than giving them the money. Stay Away… Read Full Review

“Misleading and unprofessional”

Written on: 17/07/2015 by qwMacMillan411 (1 review written)

Was looking for a specific grant and was advised they had grants for this purpose on their data base which we could qualify for once the payment was paid. On paying and looking there is no grants/funding and actually nothing different from the Government website that is for free! I have emailed and called numerous times and left voicemails to return the calls without success. The "sales" advisors are not interested as they are "not in charge" I was told Customer Services are. Then when… Read Full Review

I was also surprised when they look money from my without my knowledge. I emailed them about the issue and i got back in few days. Afters a couple a days, they resolved my problem.They also responded me through an e-mail stating that it happened due to technical problem and gave me a 25% discount coupon to use on their site.So, I would suggest to just give them some to figure out what went wrong.

“Something Fishy”

Written on: 19/06/2015 by Addisyn15 (1 review written)

I was looking for a financial boost and thought these guys seemed credible, although the alarm bells started to ring once they asked for a £280 up-front payment. The initial conversation and the website seem professional along with the promises they offer seemed really exciting. Until they started asking for the upfront payment. The sales agent was pushy claiming they would only keep the offer open until the end of the day then the file would be closed, almost making you pull out your card… Read Full Review

Thanks, I was wondering why they were being so pushy online, they emailed me twice over night (23:41 & 04:01) to immediately call them or I'll lose the funding opportunities.

Although they did include a list of possible government funding sources and I've already completed an application to go onto the NEA (worth £2225), so I'll just do it myself.

Thanks for the helpful advice.

“Fraudsters!!”

Written on: 17/06/2015 by Daltonsj239 (1 review written)

N - the lady who spoke to us is an absolute professional at sweet talking you and convincing you that you can get a grant/funding. Unfortunately we fell right into the trap. Now they have our money for a service that is free on the gov.uk site. I asked for my money back but the Head of customer services said I had already logged in so I cannot get my money back. These guys should be stopped somehow!… Read Full Review

Had them charge me for the so called directory only to find they sent me nothing at all, then when i raised it with the bank they had the cheek to send my bank so called copies of emails they had sent me, none of which i had received, i even proved that i had contacted them 10 times plus and no contact back. now awaiting banks decision.

I'm in the same boat - you give them info which they tell you means you can apply for grants and loans out of 100's of thousands of pounds of funding available, then when you sign up, none of it is in your area, which they should have known. I am finding a way of complaining and getting my money back but it's a slow process.

“Not what it seems!!”

Written on: 31/05/2015 by Trujillopt153 (1 review written)

Yes there are a lot of grants and loans in there – but they are not government grants – they are regional and council grants – so if you wanting to get a grant for a basket weaving grant in Shetland islands then you might be ok. It’s a money making venture making money out of people desperately seeking funding. I paid the amount but thankfully there was a problem with my card and I cancelled it. Although not technically fraud - it is definitely selling nonsense rather than fact… Read Full Review

'a lazy' or an 'immigrant' (as you so eloquently put it) but because I don't live in ANY of the funding boroughs and my field does not fall under the right categories for funding- I TOLD THEM THIS BEFORE I PAID AND THEREFORE WAS COMPLETELY MIS SOLD THE SERVICE.

Got this computer shop of mine in a low status and I did not have sufficient funds to keep it moving up. I tried my best looking for several agencies to loan but got no luck. But then, I came across UK Business Funding Centre and they directed me to the right path. I got the loan that I really need to keep my business. Thank you very much!… Read Full Review

“TOTAL WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY”

Written on: 19/05/2015

Got caught, but when I tried to block my card I was told by my card company that it was not fraudulent or illegal as I had signed for a subscription and that they would be able to access my credit card account for the second payment. A VERY CLEVER use of a google search for 'small business grants' and certainly not worth paying anything for! The information they permit access to is outdated. They also use different names. DO NOT USE. If only they could be named and shamed. … Read Full Review
