About Company Capital inc.

Company Capital is a 100% Canadian, privately held company based in Victoria, BC, with a long history of providing financial services to the small business community in Canada.

Company Capital is what is referred to as a direct lender – meaning customers deal directly with the decision makers and source of the money – not through a broker. This allows Company Capital to make quick decisions and provide lowest rates in the industry.

There are three primary driving forces that differentiate Company Capital from everyone else.

Simplicity – Company Capital has made it a strategic priority to make the process easy for small business owners to apply and qualify for small business financing.

Flexibility – small businesses need more than a “cookie cutter approach” so Company Capital offers the most flexible business loans in Canada with options like skipped payments, lower payments, or longer terms.

Real People – automated systems are great for ordering office supplies but when it comes to business loans Company Capital believes small businesses deserve a real person dedicated to each account.
