Benefits of Short Term Business Loans

A short term business loan, is a funding solution in its most traditional form. Business Loans work by transferring funds into your bank, operating as an injection of cash to your business, which will need to be repaid with interest within the agreed term. With a short-term business loan, this agreed term will be between 3 and 24 months. Longer term loans are available, through an Unsecured Business Loan, or a Secured Business Loan. There are multiple other forms of Short Term funding, such as a Merchant Cash Advance, or an Invoice Finance products such as Factoring, or Invoice Discounting.

Short term business loans have plenty of advantages. They typically have a very quick turnaround time, which is ideal if you need a quick injection of cash. The funds can be transferred within as quick as 24 hours, with approvals being instant in some cases. The criteria for short term loans are also typically not as stringent as other products.  This is because the term is shorter, meaning less risk on the lender’s behalf. Short term loans are also cost effective, as you are not tied into paying back interest over a matter of years. There are a few negatives to short-term loans compared to other products. Short term loans typically have higher interest rates, as the interest and fees are over a much shorter period of time. This means your monthly costs will be higher than that of a traditional business loan. If higher monthly repayments is not something you can justify, perhaps a different product would suit you and your business better.
