Being Sharia-compliant means our finance solution is managed in line with Islamic principles. In business, these principles are about managing commercial activities in a way that benefits the community. It also means avoiding industries that are considered damaging, such as those involving alcohol, tobacco and gambling. These principles also require the avoidance of paying or receiving interest, which is why our business finance is interest-free.
Any UK-based manufacturer can apply for Islamic finance. It’s simply an alternative to a traditional business loan. While being Sharia-compliant will have a special appeal to Muslim business owners, non-Muslims can also benefit from our ethical approach.
Our funding differs from financial products such as loans and invoice finance because it’s an interest-free method of raising working capital.
Access flexible, affordable finance of between £25,000 and £200,000 to invest in growing your business.
Your valuable manufacturing assets are not tied to the finance as security, leaving you in full control of how you manage them.
Apply in minutes
We don’t ask for very much of your time in the application process - just enough to give us the information that we need, nothing more.
Prompt access to cash
The money is in your bank account within two working days of your offer being fully funded.
You stay in control
It’s important that you determine how the funds are used, because you know your business better than we do.
There are no interest payments. Instead, we do charge a rate (i.e. profit rate) that’s set in advance and a processing fee, which is agreed with you at the start.
Socially responsible finance
We’re committed to providing access to finance for businesses and organisations that make a positive contribution to communities. This includes small and medium-sized firms across many different industries.
It was great working with Qardus for a second time to raise this working capital facility. The additional funding will help support stock control to service the high demand we are currently experiencing. Thank you for making the process from end to end seamless and straightforward, we highly appreciate it.

An administration fee of 15% of arrears may be applied to any repayments that are more than 7 days late.
If your facility is placed into default, we may charge an additional collections charge of up to 15% of the outstanding financing amount at the time of default.

Your facility will be allocated a risk band once you have submitted your complete application to obtain funding on the Qardus platform.
