Business Loan FAQs
What is a business loan?
A small business loan is a loan that enables smaller sized businesses to borrow money to fund their business operations. Business loans can be used as working capital for easing cash flow problems, financing a small business purchase, to pay off debt or as a business expansion loan.
What are business loan interest rates?
Business loan rates in the UK will vary with every lender and based on the business products they offer. Your business sector and credit history can also significantly impact the business loan interest rates that lenders offer you. Interest rates can be either fixed (stable over the loan term) or variable (fluctuate during the loan term).
Cashfloat can help you access low interest business loans, starting at just 2% a month! We’ll lay out all the repayment terms and charges when you apply, so you’ll know exactly how much the loan will cost before signing any contract.
Can I find business loans with no credit check?
People often look for “no credit check business loans” or “guaranteed business loans” to avoid the hassle of getting rejected by lenders. However, these loans are not recommended. The reason for this is that lenders offering these loans may not be FCA authorised and will not necessarily protect their customers from unsafe borrowing.
If you’re worried about getting declined due to bad credit, focus on improving your credit score instead. You can read more about how to do that here.
Can you get a small business loan without collateral?
Yes. Applying with Cashfloat for a business loan requires no collateral
whatsoever! You can read
more about unsecured business loans here.
If you are looking to take out a very large business loan or your credit is very poor, the lender may require you to secure the loan with collateral. Although secured loans for businesses have lower interest rates, they are much riskier to borrow as you can lose your assets if you default.
Do business loans use personal credit?
Most business loan providers will consider your personal credit rating as well as your business’ performance before approving you for a loan to make sure you can be trusted to pay the loan back. You can learn more about getting business loans with bad credit here.
Can you use a personal loan for business?
Yes! The advantages of using a personal loan for business is that your business’ performance is not checked – which can be useful if you’re starting a new company or you don’t want to send sensitive business information to lenders. However, if you default on the loan, it will be your own personal responsibility to repay the loan, regardless of whether the business is still operating or not.
Are business loans for women available?
Cashfloat believes in equal opportunity for all customers and does not ask for or consider your gender when processing loan applications. As long as you fit the criteria, you can apply for a small business loan with us. Want to know more? You can read more about small business help specifically for women here.
