Frequently Asked Questions

About Prospa Business Loan

  • Tell me about the Prospa Business Loan?
    • Prospa offers an unsecured loan of $5,000 to $250,000. The term of the loan is between three and 12 months and the cash flow friendly repayments are either daily, weekly or fortnightly.

    • You can apply for the Prospa Business Loan in under ten minutes and receive a fast response - in often as little as one hour. The application is 100% online and funds can usually be provided the same business day. Traditional business loans reference an interest rate per annum plus other fees and charges.

You can choose to allow us to use an advanced bank verification system link to instantly verify your bank information online, in which case - have your main trading bank account details handy.

If you choose to upload copies of your bank statements, we can provide a decision in as little as one business day.

  • How fast will I get the money?
    • We know growing your business is important, so Prospa will work hard to get money to you as soon as possible. If you apply before 4pm on a business day and your application is approved, we can usually have money in your account the same or next business day.

  • How much can I borrow?
    • The total amount of your loan will depend on the specific circumstances of your business. The ProspaScore platform looks at a variety of factors to determine the health of your business. Based on this information, Prospa may be able to provide you an unsecured loan amount up to $250,000. We also offer a secured business loan of up to $500,000

Fees and repayments

  • How do you charge for a Prospa Unsecured Business Loan?
    • Prospa doesn’t 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

About business loans

  • What is asset-based borrowing (a secured loan)?
    • Asset-based borrowing is when a business owner uses an asset they own to secure a loan. The asset can be either a personal asset like the family home, or a business asset like a truck or piece of equipment. The vast majority of lenders, including the big banks, tend to secure loans against an asset. If you have trouble paying back the loan, then your asset may be sold by the lender. In essence, it’s a way of securing new financing by using the value of what you already have.

  • What is an unsecured loan?
    • An unsecured loan is when the health of a business is used to determine creditworthiness, without the business owner needing to secure the loan by putting up an asset as security. Larger banks tend not to offer these as the arduous paperwork, low returns and higher risks involved don’t make it worthwhile. Many small business owners find themselves having to use an asset to secure a loan, or being declined.
