Learn about us and what we offer your business.

Our business was set up in 2002 with the express purpose of assisting small and start-up businesses to grow strong and successful. That remains our primary raison d’etre, but, as time has passed, we have grown our own business to provide additional support services. Read on to learn about us and what we now offer by way of financial services:

  • We aid SME’s in finding the most suitable sources of business finance. 
  • Through our associate company iBOSS we can assist you with the development of a business plan. Where required we will write the plans with you.
  • We can also provide you with a comprehensive range of ongoing management support services .
  • We have long experience of assisting SME’s who find themselves in a financial rescue & recovery (Turnaround) situation.

Learn about how our experience counts

The Directors of Business Finance Services have all worked for small and medium-sized businesses, both as managers and as owners. Therefore we have experience of the problems frequently encountered in sourcing suitable finance. We also have broad knowledge of working with both major high street lenders and specialist lenders. In other words, we have experience from ‘the other side of the desk’ to share with you. We are keen to offer you the sum of these experiences.

Having said this, you should not consider BFS as a regular, ‘run of the Mill’, commercial finance brokerage. Whilst we can, and do, arrange basic finance, our real area of expertise is elsewhere. We can often help you with arranging sources of finance in a situation where normal sources of funding are simply not available to your business. So, if you don’t know who to apply to, or how to put together a strong application (Pitch) or you have made errors in your submission calculations and assumptions then give us a call! to learn about us and what we have to offer

Learn about us and who we are

We pride ourselves on giving a very personal service as well as a thorough one.

With our combined knowledge and expertise, we can often find funding solutions for you where other brokerages have failed.

We spend time getting to know your business and where you want to take it.

Whilst we are working on a project we become a key part of your team.

Furthermore, once the funding is in place, we are happy to introduce you to our associate company iBOSS. It can provide you with on-going mentoring and support services to help you to grow your business in the most successful way.

If you are in need of help or advice then give us a call for an initial free, no-strings consultation. To learn more about us call us on 0800 093 5240 or by e-mail at enquiries@bufinserv.co.uk. Alternatively follow this link to our enquiry form and we will get back to you.

The Team

Peter Douglas – Director

Peter was the original Founder of BFS. After successfully completed a Degree in Business Studies he spent over 20 years in Export Sales and Marketing. He then decided to give up the globetrotting life and, with his wife, bought a small business which they ran together. Peter has run SME’s ever since. He set up BFS in 2002 having spent time getting an education in commercial finance. He says “Nothing gives more satisfaction than helping SME’s to grow or regain their strength”.

John Landers – Director

John has an accountancy background and moved into the invoice finance industry in 1981. He soon moved into Sales and has been helping businesses obtain funding ever since. John has managed sales and business development teams in both finance and professional services. He prides himself on helping businesses obtain the most appropriate funding facilities to meet their needs. He also works with Reparo as he sees their offering as being a real funding alternative to the banks for good quality businesses.  A keen sports fan John enjoys Golf and swimming [but not at the same time !!].

Phil Jones – Director

Phil started his career in the travel industry. At one time he owned three travel agencies in the South, Midlands and North.  This provided a very good grounding in owning and managing an SME.  After selling the business he moved into the Sport and Hospitality industry where he joined Silverstone Racing Circuit as a senior executive. For the last few years Phil has helped various companies in numerous business sectors by either launching their businesses or turning them around. Phil provides our clients with advice, particularly in the areas of business planning, growth and management.
