Notts and Lincs Credit Union

Notts and Lincs Credit Union has been providing financial products to the people and businesses of Nottinghamshire since 1992. By joining, you open yourself up to a world of exclusive benefits. By saving your money with a credit union, you are also helping the local community by allowing someone else to borrow.

Affordable loans

Whether you save a little or a lot, putting money aside on a regular basis means you’ll be working towards a better way of managing. You’ll also have something to look forward to, or have a nest egg to fall back on for life’s little emergencies.

As a member you can also access small loans with the minimum amount you can borrow from the Credit Union being £100. Many high street banks have a minimum loan of £1,000, so do not cater for people with a less than perfect credit history. They provide affordable interest rates, offer flexible repayment terms with no penalties or hidden costs and look at more than just your credit score. More can be found on their loans webpage.  

Business rates

Business rates is a local tax that is paid by the occupiers of all non-domestic or business property, in the same way that council tax is a tax on domestic property.

Find out how to pay your rates as well as whether your business qualifies for any rate relief on our business rates pages.

Debt advice

Tax and National Insurance

Support is available from the HMRC if you need help and advice on issues such as tax, VAT and PAYE. Visit the HMRC training courses for help with setting up a business, keeping records, completing tax returns and more.
