Questions? We have answers

The online application will take around 3 minutes.
The minimum business loan application is $10,000. There is no maximum; however we will require additional information for any loan above $75,000.
Of course! Though it’s worth noting that if you are starting a business we will request a business plan, cash flow projections and 3 months of personal bank statements.
Once your application is approved, we need to verify the information you provided and conduct any additional credit checks that may be required. We’ll talk to you about the loan terms and rate, the loan funds will then be paid to your nominated bank account.
The rate is dependent on (1) the credit score of the borrower and any guarantors, (2) servicing position of the loan, (3) the purpose of the loan (e.g. working capital or an asset purchase).
Unsecured loans have a max term of 60 months. However this is dependent on meeting our lending criteria. Secured loans have a max term of 5 years but can go up to 7 years in certain circumstances.
We usually require a copy of the business financial statements to assess a loan application. If the application is successful we will require some additional supporting information such as identification.
Every start-up will have unique requirements which means we need to take into account the different circumstances of every application. Please give us a call to discuss your loan as you won’t be able to get an automated decision.
We have to show that the application is affordable and that the business can make the repayments for the loan you are applying for. If you are purchasing a business we will look into the business performance as well as any external income you or any guarantors may be earning.
Yes you can, just complete our online application and our business lending specialist will get in touch with you to discuss your best options.
