Responsible Lending and Privacy Policy

Policy on Responsible lending

Our panel of short term business lenders are all committed to responsible lending. Our panel of business funders are committed to offer short term business loans focused towards the borrowing needs of customers. These lenders are also focussed on providing clear, transparent customer loan contracts and communications and to treat all customers in a courteous manner and provide high standards of service.

Implications of Non Payment and Collection Practices

Each lender has its own policy and non payment may result in additional fees being imposed. These will always be disclosed to you before you enter into any loan agreement. Initially most lenders will contact you by phone or letter to discuss payment. Some lenders may pursue their right to payment through the courts and you should seek legal advice if required. This may impact on your credit rating/ credit score and your ability to obtain credit in the future.

Disclosure of Fees

Each application for a Short Term Business Loan is considered on an individual basis. Short Term Business Loans will advise you on your borrowing options along with an indication of the applicable interest rate and any other fees.

Associated Fees

All associated fees with the loan will be disclosed to you upfront.

Disclosure of Renewal Policy

The credit agreement will under no circumstances be renewed automatically. All our short term funders have their own separate and distinct policies on renewal so please make sure you read the terms and conditions of the specific short term business funder you are matched with to fully understand their renewal policy. Any questions on renewal policy should be directed to the funder.
