About Capital on Tap

At Capital on Tap, we realize that running a business is hard. Accessing funding for your business shouldn't be time-consuming and complicated. We offer simple, easy credit solutions for small businesses in the UK.

Traditional funding options have slow response times, rigid underwriting criteria and opaque fees, making it difficult and sometimes impossible for a small business to get finance. We offer a solution to those problems.

Our mission

We believe in building simple tools for real-world businesses to realize their potential and achieve great things. Whether it is to get through a slow month, having to pay for stock or fuel high growth, most small businesses require funding to thrive and survive.

Capital on Tap has provided over £1.5 billion and helped more than 100,000 businesses to grow. Our goal is simple, providing financial relief for small businesses to grow, thrive and survive. And to make the process as easy as possible by taking the complexity out of business finance.

Making it easier to manage your business

Businesses can spend up to 120 days per year on administrative duties. From expense management to taxes, all of this keeps business owners away from improving and running their business. We understand that business owners want to spend their valuable time focusing on their business and growth.

Capital on Tap Services

Getting finance for your business from Capital on Tap is easy and quick. Filling out our application online takes 2 minutes and won’t affect your credit rating.

You will receive a decision in minutes. Once you sign up for your account, you get instant access to funding and your card will be delivered within 4 business days.

Information we will need

Using our online application form we will need basic business and personal information. If your business is a limited company, please have your registration number available.

Once the loan application is completed, our business compliance team will check that all conditions are met and you will receive your business card.

Self-employed individuals welcome

Funding shouldn't be hard just because you are self-employed. At Capital on Tap, we help sole traders and freelancers to get the funding they need to grow. We offer higher limits than a personal credit card and flexible repayment options with great rewards.

You will be in control of how you use your funding. You can spend on your self-employed credit card or send the funds to your bank account. You will have access to all the features we offer to small business owners.

You can use your card to make purchases at any merchant in the UK or worldwide that accepts Mastercard/Visa. You can make withdrawals from any ATM. The daily withdrawal limit is two transactions and limited to £400 per day.

Your card can also be used for online or telephonic purchases. The merchant will need your name, 16-digit account number printed on the card, the card type, and expiry date. Your CVV number will also be required. You can make up to 15 transactions per day on your card.

Repayments on your card

To best suit your preferences, we offer three different payment options. You can pay the Full Balance, Minimum Monthly amount or a Fixed Amount. Of you choose the Minimum Monthly payment option you will need to pay 10% of your outstanding balance or £100 – whichever amount is greater.

By logging into your account you can change your repayment option at any time during your billing period. Although a direct debit is the simplest way to pay, you can also make a debit card payment from the online portal.
