Business Loan FAQs

What is a business loan?

A small business loan in the UK is a type of business funding that enables smaller sized businesses to borrow money to fund their business operations. Business loans in the UK 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.

Can I get a business loan with bad credit?

Yes. Like we specialise in direct lender payday loans for bad credit, we also offer business loans for bad credit. At Cashfloat, we want to give all businesses a fair chance at succeeding. So whether you need a bad credit business startup loan or just a regular bad credit business loan, we are here for you.

What are business loan 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.

Should I use a business loan calculator?

A business loan calculator in the UK could provide you with more clarity on what borrowing looks like. It can give you a better idea of how much you could borrow, the interest rates charged and the total you will have to repay. You can rest assured that we have partnered up with premium business providers in the UK to get you the best deals and rates.

Can I get a business loan with no credit check?

People often look for “no credit check business loans” or “bad credit business loans with guaranteed approval” to avoid the hassle of getting rejected by lenders. However, these loans are not recommended. The reason for this is that lenders offering no credit check 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, how about focusing on improving your business credit score instead. This is an excellent solution for helping your business in the long term. Click here to read more about how to fix your business credit score.

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.

Can you get a small business loan without collateral?

Yes. Applying with Cashfloat for a business loan requires no collateral whatsoever!

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.

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.

How long does it take to get fast working capital loans?

Fast working capital loans can often reach your business bank account within a day of being approved. Our loans are way quicker than most business loan companies and big banks.

Every business needs funding to grow, and we’re here to help that happen. At Cashfloat, we want to give every small business the opportunity to succeed, which is why we’re partnered with the leading business lenders to offer small business loans right here on our website!
