The minimum qualifications for a loan through Funding Circle are:

  • 2+ years in business
  • At least one business owner must have a personal Experian FICO® credit score of 660+
  • Annual revenue of $50,000+
  • No personal bankruptcies among business owners within the last seven years
  • Funding Circle has funded 700+ industries, however, select industries are not eligible including but not limited to: speculative real estate, nonprofit organizations, weapons manufacturers, gambling businesses, marijuana dispensaries, and pornography

When you apply, Funding Circle will not conduct a hard credit check, so your personal credit score will not be affected. Instead, we conduct soft credit inquiries on both the business and the owner(s) to underwrite or to service your loan, and we only conduct these after you’ve agreed to these inquiries during the application process. These soft inquiries will not impact your business or personal credit score or show up on future reports obtained by other lenders.

Once you fill out the quick, 6-minute online application, you will be asked to submit 6 months of your most recent business bank statements and 1-2 years of tax returns. Our process integrates with Plaid, so you may be able to automatically provide your bank statements in just a few clicks.

In certain situations, in order to provide you with additional funding options, we share your information with third-party lenders as further described in our privacy policy. Additionally, once your business is funded, we file a UCC-1 financing statement — a searchable record — on your business assets. Our name on these filings is masked for additional security.

Like many lenders, Funding Circle charges a one-time origination fee that is based on the strength of your credit profile and ranges from 4.49% to 10.49%. There are never any upfront fees to apply. One of the key benefits of a Funding Circle loan is no prepayment penalties. This means, if you pay off your loan early, you will not pay any additional fees.

Also, if your monthly payment is more than 10 days late, we may charge a late fee of up to 5% of each missed payment amount. The late fee will be payable immediately and is in addition to your missed payment.
