What is a short-term business loan?

Every business at some point of time requires financial aid to smoothly run their business and maintain the cash flow. In such scenarios, short-term business loans are very effective. A short-term business loan generally has to be paid off in a short duration through daily/weekly repayments. However, the duration varies as per the terms of the company or the lender. In most cases, the loan duration is either a year or even less depending upon overall risk profile of the business.

How can a short-term business loan help your business?

For a business, it is important to maintain cash flow, demand-supply chain, and pay off all the expenses on time. While there can be many circumstances where the business may require urgent funds for a short duration of time. In such cases, short-term business loans can help in maintaining the smooth functioning of the business.

Things to keep in mind while applying for a short-term business loan

There are many things that a business owner should keep in mind while applying for a short-term business loan. Here are some of the things that can help in avoiding problems while applying for business loans.

Know the use

Before applying for a loan, it is necessary to know the purpose or use of the money. The reason why knowing the purpose is important is because there should be a plan on how the money will be used and how the business will settle the amount within the decided time frame.


 It is very essential for a business to consider the total amount repayable, as the interest rates are higher in short-term business loans as compared to normal or regular loans. While looking for the use of a loan, it is also important to consider the repayment.

Impact of Credit score

Short-term business loans are available for all businesses with low credit scores, but the low score can impact the loan in many ways. While applying for the loan it is important to check the details before so that you as a business owner can plan beforehand.

A low credit score can affect the interest rate at which the business will get a loan. Knowing the credit score before will help in understanding the estimate of the rates and other terms of the loan.

Right lender

Once you will understand the need and urgency of the loan, you should  look for lenders available. Instead of going for the first lender, take your time and research for the required factors as you might need flexibility which every lender might not offer. Besides, check the requirements that the lender asks for.

Compare offers:

As a business owner you may get multiple options, but from all the options it is important to choose the right one. In order to do that, you need to check all the offerings along with the interest rates that are offered. After considering each aspect you can easily decide which lender is ideal for your short-term business loan.

All the above points are essential for a business to consider while applying for a short-term business loan which could be a stressful task. We at Broc Finance do ongoing research on loan products available with the lenders and endeavor to find the best loan options for our customers. So instead of going through all the leg work, share your requirements with us and we will assist in getting the right loan option for you.
