How do Unsecured Business Loans Work?

Unsecured Commercial Loans Explained

The process of obtaining the loan is simple and involves showing a healthy financial statement and the track record to prove that you have the confidence to fully repay your loan.

To meet the criteria, the borrower must have the following:

  • A good credit rating: It is more difficult to get approved for a loan if you have bad credit. 
  • Evidence of good trading history via the provision of clear audited accounts, preferably for the current trading period, along with a previous couple of years.
  • A clear business cash flow forecast for the next few months will greatly help your chances of approval acceptance.
  • At least the last 3 months of bank statements.

What you need to know about Unsecured Business Loans

Interest rates on unsecured business loans are often higher than for secured loans, due to the extra risk involved in granting the loan. However, this can also depend on a credit check to establish your credit rating. 

That being said, this financial vehicle can be inexpensive compared to other options.

The repayment term will often be limited to a shorter duration than for a secured loan, because of the larger repayment amortization required and due to the higher risk.

When seeking an unsecured business loan it is important that you have the income available to make payments over the life of the loan.

We can help you to calculate the best rate and find you a reputable lender who can offer you the best rates.

Secured Vs Unsecured Business Loan: The Risks and the Benefits

Unsecured commercial loans have always been of lower risk to the borrower and of higher risk for the lender, because of the possibility that the borrower could default with no means of repaying the debt. 

Many lenders will look at the amount you wish to borrow relative to the turnover of the business, i.e. the overall ‘gearing’ of a business is taken into account. 

For the majority of the lenders we deal with, the maximum unsecured loan is around £5000,000.

However, if a company has a high enough turnover and shows a consistently good profit, much higher sums can be obtained.

The benefits of an unsecured loan include:

  • Quick turn around as no valuations or legal charges required.
  • No Assets required
  • Low initial payments
  • Fixed monthly repayments

The downsides of an unsecured loan include:

  • The business needs to show good trading accounts
  • A good credit score is required
  • Higher interest rates than secured loans
  • Shorter terms are available than secured loans, usually from 1 to 5 years.
