Financial performance

ART Business Loans has a strong Balance Sheet and track record, including repayment of all loans made by banks and others over 20 years in line with terms and conditions.

Shares are offering Community Investment Tax Relief (CITR) - this gives a deduction of 5% of the amount invested from an investor’s Income Tax bill or Corporation Tax bill each year for five years.

Social performance

Since launch in 1997, ART Business Loans has lent over £27.5 m to more than 1,370 businesses that may have grown more slowly, or even ceased to trade, because they couldn’t obtain the finance they needed from anywhere else. Those businesses have safeguarded or created in excess of 7,500 jobs.
