How do you qualify for a small business loan?
To qualify for a small business loan with Prospa, your business needs to have been trading for 6 months or more. If you purchased an existing business, you only need to demonstrate you have been trading for 3 months. You’ll also need to show an income of $6,000 or more per month. Talk to us today to find out more about qualifying for a Prospa small business loan.
Should you get finance from Banks?
Banks offer business loans and equipment loans of up to $1 million (or more) but the application process can be long and involved. New Zealand banks traditionally ask for a list of items including income statements and balance sheets for the past two years, up-to-date financial statements, business plans, tax returns, and bank account information and statements.
Why consider Independent Lenders?
Independent lenders like Prospa offer business loans from as little as $5,000. They also tailor their products to the needs of small businesses, which means qualification requirements are clear, the process is much quicker and easier, funding is possible in just 24 hours, interest rates are competitive, and repayments are tailored to business cash flow.
