Short Term Business Loans

Looking for a short term business loan? You’ve come to the right place

Short term funding for SMES

It’s never been harder for UK SMEs to obtain short term business loans from traditional sources. With banks less willing to lend to small businesses than they were before the recession, it can be challenging for SMEs to secure short term funding, even if they’re generating a healthy revenue.

However, the banks’ retreat from SME lending has opened up the business finance market to a number of new lenders. Many of these companies will look at how your business is performing today, and won’t turn you down because of a missed payment or CCJ five years ago.

Blending cutting-edge technology with expert underwriting, the majority of alternative lenders can also fund businesses in a matter of days, while offering greater flexibility on repayment terms.

Advantages of a short term loan

A short term business loan is a good option for companies that require a line of funding, but don’t want to repay the debt over a number of years. If a company's cash flow is frequently put under strain by late payments or 90-day payment terms, having access to a reliable short term finance facility can make all the difference.

Several lenders offer a traditional fixed-term repayment plan, with businesses repaying a set monthly amount over an agreed term, which could be anything from one month to four years. A fixed-term business loan can help companies plan ahead, as they’ll know exactly how much they’ll be paying each month.

Alternatively, businesses can opt for a revenue-based repayment plan, which ties monthly payments to a company’s turnover. Offered by a handful of lenders, this repayment option can be a good fit for companies with seasonal sales patterns, allowing them to repay less in slower months and more when sales are higher.

Certain lenders will also give businesses the option of paying off a loan early, at no extra charge, while offering additional perks such as repayment holidays and top-ups.
