How is a business cash advance
different to a business loan?

A business cash advance, in comparison to traditional loans, is a relatively new finance product. Unlike other business loans, that may require collateral from your personal or company assets, a business cash advance offers a safer alternative as it is solely based on a percentage of your businesses future revenue. Additionally, with no fixed term or monthly repayments, late payments become non-existent, providing assistance when cash flow fluctuates between seasons.

Getting approved for a business loan can take time with some finance providers as your application goes under review. A business cash advance is often a quicker alternative if you meet the criteria detailed further down the page.

There are typically less borrower requirements too. We don’t need to see detailed business plans, like most banks will with a traditional business loan. This means that even if you have been rejected for a business loan, you could still qualify for a business cash advance with Momenta Finance.
