What our clients say

We have just taken out a loan for business growth with the team at Acorn Business Finance. The process was very easy and straightforward with minimal paperwork and fuss. Cathy was very helpful and kept us informed along the way. The process was super speedy and we were delighted with the results. I would highly recommend anyone looking for business finance to speak with the team at Acorn! Many Thanks.

We have been delighted with the advice from Acorn Business Finance and all their help in arranging a business loan. RRA Architects is a very busy practice, so we would particularly like to thank Stuart and Cathy at Acorn for going ‘above and beyond’ to fit in with our schedule, so we could get everything arranged quickly. We would use Acorn again and we would happily recommend their services.
