The resolutions you shouldn't have broken yet...




Training & Education

The NACFB is committed to providing Training and Education for Commercial Finance Brokers and over the years has developed a range of training days to cover all aspects of Commercial Finance. This has included Asset Finance, Factoring and Invoice Discounting, Marketing and Fraud training to name just a few. In addition our CPD programme continues and recording is now available on line.

We offer a new qualification to replace the Certificate in Commercial Mortgages, which has been written in conjunction with all the High Street banks. The Certificate in Business Banking and Conduct (CertBB&C) is the standard qualification for all our members and is run by The London Institute of Banking & Finance.


Commercial Finance Expo

The Commercial Finance Expo is the only show in the UK dedicated to the business finance community. Representatives from funders across the business finance arena will be exhibiting. This year the NACFB conference will be held during the Expo, welcoming speakers who can offer a keen insight into different parts of the industry..



FindSMEfinance lists sources of commercial finance for small businesses, including leasing and hire purchase arrangements, commercial mortgages, and invoice discounting and factoring. It will allow you to search by region or postcode, and will take you directly to the brokers who are best placed to help you find the funding you need.

Help for SME's

Beyond our core objective of regulating the commercial Finance Industry, we are here to assist the wider SME market to find funding for their business, particularly through these difficult times.

Since 2008 the lack of funding in the market has seen our members and their customers struggle to finance their businesses. We had 84 different lenders at the start of this period; this number had fallen to 45 at the start of 2010. We now have more than 140 different Commercial Finance Lenders specialising in:

Commercial Mortgages
Leasing and Asset Finance
Factoring and Invoice Discounting
Vehicle Finance
Development Finance
Bridging Finance
Buy to Let Mortgages


Our advice network consists of more than one thousand six hundred experienced commercial finance individuals as members spread right across the whole of the UK. This constitutes a wealth of knowledge that is available to all businesses and we are now striving to ensure that we gain national recognition.


As a Business Owner, who has found funding difficult for new premises and equipment and for the meeting of new orders, we have proven the success of alternative lending sources. You cannot find them on the High Street, because there is no branch network. They come to the market through the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers. During the period 2015-2016 we were responsible for introducing more than £20 billion in lending into the market.


We now have established contacts with all SME groups and can provide help and advice nationwide. Our members operate under a recognised code of practice, so any business can be sure that they are dealing with professionals.


We are here to help the business owner with unique access to a range of business lenders. Through this, we can help businesses to grow and expand, allowing them to fulfil new orders, employ more staff and assist the improvement of the economic climate.
