What is a Short-term Business Loan?

A short-term business loan is a lending facility that is expected to be repaid in a short time, usually between a few months to two years. This form of financing is much more flexible and simpler to execute as the complexities of traditional loans are taken away because of the shorter loan terms.

A short-term business loan can be a perfect option for companies needing a fast cash infusion, whether for refurbishments, buying inventory, managing cash flow or investing in new growth plans.

Whatever your reason for needing a short-term loan, we may be able to arrange something for you. Why not get in touch to talk more about your needs?

How can a Short-term Loan help your Business?

Everyone knows that one of the reasons for business failure is insufficient capital. In fact, 2 in every 5 businesses fail because they don’t have enough funds to handle their business needs.

A short-term loan can make it possible for your business to maintain its competitive advantage in the marketplace. When you have enough cash to handle your everyday transactions, your business can be at the right place at the right time to take advantage of business opportunities.

When you need to deal with extra payments or handle unforeseen expenses, a short-term business loan will give you financial help so that you can focus on working towards achieving your business goals.

Types of Short-Term Loans we offer

Cash-flow Business Loans

A cash-flow loan is a type of unsecured business financing used to help companies control their cash flow, fund their day-to-day operations and finance short-term business projects. A cash-flow loan, much like a working capital loan, helps companies cover their daily costs and operations.

Unlike other funding options, our lenders providing cash-flow loans are more focused on business results and less on credit score, which means that many more companies will apply and get finance.

Tax Business Loans

Each business is responsible for paying its tax bill; however, this can happen at inconvenient times. When a company cannot meet its tax responsibility, a business tax loan is a perfect way to spread the tax expenses into manageable monthly repayments.

Our lenders are experienced in providing loans ranging from £XXX to £XXX, so you can be sure there is a business tax loan that will cover your bill’s expense. You will be able to access the most affordable loans deals on the market by applying via our website, with low interest rates and easy to afford repayments.

VAT Business Loans

VAT liabilities can be spread over a period of 3-12 months. When your VAT demand is due, a VAT loan from our lenders can help you meet your payment while spreading the cost into manageable monthly repayments.

At Fast Forward Finance, we provide tailor-made financing facilities for companies to use for VAT liabilities. With the facilities at our disposal, you can complete your initial application in as little as 24 hours.

If you have a pending VAT payment that you don’t know how to meet, discuss you needs with us on PHONEXXX or EMAILXXX. Let us help you work out a suitable solution.

Equipment Business Loans

Equipment loans help you buy or repair the essential equipment your business uses for its operations. Usually, the loan term is aligned with the equipment’s projected life period, and the equipment acts as collateral for the loan. Rates likely depend on the equipment’s value and the viability of your business.

Property Business Loans

At Fast Forward Finance, we work with our partner lenders in the industry to provide reasonable property business loans to facilitate the purchase, renovation or refinancing of business property.

Our loans can be used to handle property projects used by your business or a property investment that is expected to bring in returns, such as a buy-to-let property.

You not only keep ownership of your business and your business premises but also enjoy improved cash flow and, if the lender agrees, you can even rent out part of the property to make extra income.

The property business loans issued by our lenders provide lower monthly payments with usually lower interest rates than other unsecured loans and can be fixed to help you handle and predict your finances more accurately.

Development Business Loans

A development loan is a short-term loan advanced to buy land or buildings that need construction. The appropriate funds will be distributed in stages or drawdown payments upon completion of work stages decided in advance.

This form of loan is used by developers for the construction, conversion or renovation of any size of property or development. Our lenders provide financing options specifically tailored to business growth.

Invoice Financing

Do you have lots of pending customer invoices? You can convert this to instant cash that can help you solve pressing cash-flow problems in your business.

Invoice financing may be able to help you access up to 95% of the cash in your unpaid invoices. This is perfect if you get through a sudden large contract or need to replace inventory.

Your account receivables are used as security for this loans and you can agree with the lender on who will bear the responsibility of the owed invoices going forward.

Asset Finance

A flexible approach to financing, asset financing allows your company access to the equipment, technologies, vehicles and tools it requires to operate and develop, without losing cash flow.

Here at Fast Forward Finance, we may be able to arrange attractive asset financing options for your business, in most cases, even when you have a less than impressive credit rating.

Of course, our lenders may want to hold the deeds to these assets to use as security against the loan, but you will have the assets you need to work and not suffer from interrupted operations.

Business Lines of credit

A business line of credit is a kind of lending agreement where a company can borrow money from a company lender. Drawing the funds can be achieved all at once or in tranches, as the funds are needed until the maximum loan amount is reached.

A line of credit is perfect for businesses that do not exactly know the total amount they need for projects but want an open source of funds that they can withdraw from as they need and not pay interest on funds they did not use.

With Fast Forward Financing, you may be able to access a line of credit for any business-related needs, whether expanding your business, filling in cash-flow gaps, or purchasing inventory or equipment.

Business Loans of up to £50,000

Our lender panel is prepared to provide up to 100,000 in finance to qualified businesses. You can use the loan to buy inventory and equipment, hire staff, launch products or invest in technology research.

Large Business Loans

A large business loan will help your company grow and develop significantly, whether you need a new office or are trying to buy out another small business. However, you’ll probably need to have been in business for a couple of years to qualify, and lenders will probably want your company to bring in at least XXX a year to make sure you can repay the loan.

Fast Forward Financing may be able to help source large loans for you. We work with clients from a wide variety of industries and have been successful in getting them the large loans they need to turn their businesses around.

Unsecured Business Loans

Although business loans are typically always secured against properties, unsecured business loans can be structured without any such collateral.

This makes it an easy and flexible type of business financing that fits the bill for businesses that don’t own a lot of assets, or where the assets are already protected against finance. However, businesses applying for unsecured loans must have a good credit score and may need to meet a few other requirements put in place by the lender.

Fast Forward Finance can work with you to find unsecured loans that are right for you and your business. You will profit from our staff’s abundance of business experience.

No-credit-check Business Loans

IF your business has a less than ideal credit score or is too young to have any credit rating, our partner lenders may be able to offer financing options. Many of our lenders do not use credit ratings as a factor at all, relying instead on the business results and the amount of revenue that comes in.

We can also link businesses without credit to lenders who provide either asset financing or invoice factoring, two types of loans that do not first require credit checks.

What are the Advantages of a Short-term Business Loan?

Shorter Time for Incurring Interest

Usually, the more you owe the lender, the more interest you’ll pay. For a short-term loan, though, you can pay back all of it over a shorter time which also ensures you pay less interest. You’ll also be saving some money even though the interest rate is typically higher than long-term loans.

Quick Funding Time

Short-term business loans are becoming increasingly faster to execute than conventional loans. If your loan application is approved, you can get most of the short-term business loans within 24 to 72 hours. A short-term loan does not require the same close scrutiny as your traditional term loan, which makes processing quicker.

Easier to Acquire

Most short-term business loans have surprisingly high approval ratings as opposed to more traditional business financing options. Even if you have a small or poor credit history in your company, you may likely qualify for a short-term loan.

What are the Disadvantages of Short-term Business Loans?

They are high-cost loans –

Short-term loans usually attract high interest rates and high monthly payments. Since you are repaying the main debt over a shorter period of time, you end up spending a large sum of money per month relative to what you would pay if you are servicing a long-term loan.

Potential of a negative effect on credit report –

One way to build up your business credit score is to make use of a short-term loan. But if you can’t repay the loan on the scheduled date then the consequences are massive. The new debt to income ratio along with the new loan’s high cost would cause a dramatic drop in your credit rating, and this could make you lose funding opportunities in the future.

Loss of property –

When your loan is secured and you default, the security can be taken by the loan provider, which means you can lose personal or even business property.

You’ll have to make frequent payments –

The fact that most of these loans require very regular payments is a notable downside to applying for a short-term commercial loan. Some of those loans need payments weekly, or even daily, and this can be a huge problem for businesses that do not make daily or weekly income.

How Does a Fast Forward Finance Short-term Loan work?

Unlike a conventional bank loan that is typically repaid over many years, a short-term loan is intended to be repaid within a few months, typically between 3 and 24 months. You negotiate with an amount that you can afford to borrow with our lender, including the interest rate and the total sum that you are supposed to pay back. If your loan is approved after you have met the lender’s criteria, funding takes place in a short time. Because of the nature of the loan, you must be sure that your business has what it takes to repay the loan within the stipulated time, otherwise your business assets may be at risk. Call PHONEXXX today to find out the best short-term business loan for your business needs.

Benefits from Fast Forward Finance’s Short-Term Lending

Manage your Cash Flow

Renovate your Location

A short-term business loan provides an ideal financing option for both new and existing companies. You can spend the money on new premises, or renovate the existing one.
