Smart@Vance specializes in short-term loans (3-12 months) so it’s important to ask yourself whether a short-term loan is right for your business! Below is a table to help guide you make the right decision.
A Smart@Vance short-term business loan may also be right for you when you:
How do you charge for a Smart@Vance Unsecured Business Loan?
We do not charge interest because terms are usually less than 12 months. Instead, we offer a factor rate. A factor rate is expressed as a decimal figure, not a percent. It varies based on your industry, how long you have been in business, the health of your cash flow and other factors. When a factor rate is used, interest is charged to the principal when the loan is originated, it doesn’t compound.
Is there any penalty for early repayment?
There are no fees for early repayment and no balloon payment at the end of your loan. We are totally transparent with our customers about the total amount due and the date of the final payment. Once you make the final payment your balance will be $0.
What are the fees?
We know fees can be confusing, so we made it simple and transparent – there are no hidden fees and the amount due from day one includes the establishment fee. There is no compounding interest. There are no additional fees (excluding any late payment or default fees) and no penalties for early repayment.
How do repayments work?
It’s important to offer you easy ways to pay back your loan. To help you avoid missing repayments we offer daily, weekly or fortnightly repayments that are automatically deducted from your nominated business account.
