How do business loans work?
When you get a business loan, your loan provider will lend you a lump sum of money, which you then repay over an agreed period with added interest. The money must be used for business purposes, such as marketing, equipment or growth.
Am I eligible for a business loan?
To be eligible to apply for a loan with us, you need to:
- Have been trading for 1 year or more
- Be based in the UK
How much will a business loan cost?
The amount your loan will cost will depend on the amount of money you want to borrow, your interest rate and your loan term. We charge a one-off completion fee when you take out your loan, and your interest rate will be calculated based on a number of factors, including your credit score and finances.
There’s no fee if you want to settle the loan early. All our loans are fixed rate, so you’ll know exactly how much you’ll need to repay each month and what the cost of borrowing is.
If you’d like a breakdown of how much your loan could cost, check out our business loan calculator here.
How much can I borrow?
At Funding Circle, you can apply for a small business loan of £10,000 to £500,000.
Is a business loan right for me?
Before considering a small business loan, you should take some time to work out whether a loan is your best option. Business loans can be used to refinance existing debt, or support your business through times of financial hardship.
You should never take out a business loan if you’re worried about whether you can meet the repayments.
A business loan could be right for you if:
- You're buying assets that will add long-term value to your business
- You require additional funds to grow or expand your business
- You wish to improve your business credit score
- You need help managing your cash flow
A business loan may not be right for you if:
- You cannot find a loan of the correct amount with suitable terms
- You are not certain you can afford repayments
- You have recently been refused a business loan
- You have used up all existing lines of credit
Improving your credit score can better your chances of getting a business loan. You can find some advice on how to boost your score here.
