General information

    To calculate your monthly business revenue, YouLend will take the monthly average of all the revenues you have received in the past across the bank accounts you agree to share with YouLend. 

    If you want the funding to be only based on revenues you earn through our platform, then you should only share the bank accounts where you receive revenue from However, if you share additional business revenue streams you could receive a higher amount of funding.

  • The funding from YouLend can be used for any business purpose (related to your property), such as covering unexpected or off-season expenses and making property improvements and enhancements– the choice is entirely up to you.

  • If you have been funded by YouLend at least once, you can usually get quotes for additional funding and get the funds transferred on the same business day that you request them.


  • YouLend charges a single fixed fee, which will be repaid on a weekly basis. The fee will be between 3% and 19% of the amount advanced to you and is determined by a range of factors, including: 

    • the amount advanced 
    • the estimated duration of repayment 
    • the overall risk score of your business (as determined by YouLend)
  • When you sign the funding agreement with YouLend, you must provide them with a direct debit instruction. You repay YouLend via direct debit from the same account where you received the advance. You have the option of setting a repayment amount that is a fixed percentage of your weekly revenue or a repayment amount that is a fixed sum. 

    Example: Fixed percentage of 20% on your weekly revenue 

    - If, in a given week, your revenue is £5,000, your repayment would be £1,000, which would be debited from the same account that was funded. If, in the following week, your revenue is  £4,000, your repayment would be £800. Therefore, if your revenue differs each week, you will pay a different amount each week. 

    Example: Fixed amount of £1,000 per week 

    - Your repayment will be a fixed amount of £1,000 per week which will be debited from the same account that was funded. You will make the same repayment to YouLend, regardless of any changes in your revenue.
