Congratulations! You’ve been Preapproved for a Business Cash Advance!

These terms are meant to be read in conjunction with the Business Cash Advance Headline Terms emailed to you – the Headline Terms are subject to satisfactory due diligence checks, and the conclusion of any Conditions Precedent (as outlined in the Headline Terms). When these are in place, we can sign the funding agreements, and fund within 24 hours!

How your cash advance works – an illustration

The Advance is the cash advance of £100,000* made to you at signing of our final Agreement and that will be transferred to your bank account at the Funding Date. The Servicing and Administration Fee of £2,500+VAT* is the amount due in consideration for providing services such as ledger management, loan and debt collection services, and the provision of management information. The Principal Amount is the amount you borrow from us under the Agreement including Servicing and Administration Fee.

How early repayment discount works

You would usually borrow £100,000* from us and need to repay us a minimum of £128,750* depending on when you repay the Advance. That is to say, if you repay us in full in the first 6 months, you can save up to £20,600* as an Early Repayment Discount, otherwise, the repayment amount will be the full £149,350*

How repayment works?

We won’t charge you interest on your Business Cash Advance, rather, we take a percentage of your receipts on your bank accounts (e.g., when you get paid by your customers) plus a regular Weekly Repayment. Every Wednesday, we review your bank receipt for the previous week and calculate how much is due in repayment, namely:

  • the Weekly Repayment figure of £2,872.12* plus
  • 6.2%* of your receipts in the preceding week.

We will share our calculations with you before applying for your weekly payment on, or on the business day immediately after, the Wednesday of the week following. You have the option to repay early and reduce the repayment amount during the first 6 months of the loan. Your discount and reduction in amount to be repaid is then calculated as the pro-rata proportion of the Early Repayment Discount based on the date of the final repayment if during the first 6 months. It is at your discretion entirely whether to repay us early and take advantage of this discount. The Business Cash Advance is deemed to be repaid in full when the Funder has received the Repayment Amount in full (subject to deductions for early repayment if applicable and/or any Additional Fees if applicable), which shall be the Maximum Term of 12 months. *These figures are for illustrative purposes only – the exact terms are as specified in your Business Cash Advance Headline Terms

What happens in case of missed payments?

If you fail to comply in full with the terms of repayment, it will constitute an Event of Default under our agreement and Default Interest in respect of any Unpaid Amount as well as Additional Fees as set out in the final Agreement.
