The Basics of Working Capital Loan

Working capital is the lifeblood of your business. You need it to keep your business' finances flowing smoothly.

Small business loans are designed to help you with your short-term expenses. They are designed to meet immediate needs rather than fund long-term goals.

We, at Merchant ReFi, take pride in our diverse marketplace. We are all about helping all sorts of business owners fund their own business. We can help you find flexible funding in the form of a working capital loan.

Working capital loans are short-term loans, and they operate similar to traditional term loans. The process is pretty straightforward. You acquire a set cash amount upfront that you would agree to pay back. In addition to this, there are interest and lender’s fees that you need to pay for over a predetermined period — usually from 3 to 18 months. Applying for a working capital loan is quicker and far easier too.

When it comes to working capital loans, they are typically smaller than a traditional business loan. The repayment period is shorter, interest rates come higher, and you have to pay off the lender on a daily or weekly basis. The higher interest rates are due to the ease with which you can qualify for.

A working capital loan is riskier for a lot of borrowers and lenders. For this reason, they are one of the more expensive loans you can avail.

Whether your business is just starting or taking big leaps to expand an existing business, you need extra funding from time to time. And when you need this, a working capital loan is ideal from time to time.

Once in a while, business opportunities come around, and without the right funds, you’d have to pass up on the opportunity.

You should consider this loan if you plan to expand a business or refinance a different short-term debt on more favorable terms.

  • No need for collateral: a qualification doesn’t require any form of insurance.
  • Borrow quickly and repay quickly: repayments are taken daily or weekly.
  • Cash on hand: this is ideal for dealing with cash flow problems.

A working capital loan is ideal for fast cash and to immediately rectify cash flow problems. Taking out a working capital loan can be helpful in cases of financial emergency.

How Do I Qualify For A Working Capital Loan?

Working capital loan providers place emphasis on cash-flow. This is because a strong cash flow is sometimes capable of overcoming other financial concerns that can disqualify a business for traditional term loans.

Most small business loans are for growing assets, but a working capital loan is used for running costs -- like invoices, rent, payroll. Taking out a short-term loan like this keeps your business functioning. Working capital loans are also very flexible and is capable of paying big dividends.

How Much Will A Working Capital Loan Cost?

Working capital loans are paid off quickly. Often it's paid daily or weekly. It may cut into your cash flow, but at least you don't need to worry about debts for too long.

Here's how your small business loans are calculated:

For instance, let’s say you’ve taken out a $200,000 working capital loan, and your lender has a factor rate of 1.15. Multiplying the two factors gives you a total amount that you need to pay back: $230,000.

Let’s presume that the working capital loan lender wants you to pay back that total amount in 10 months — because of short-term loans like this one range from 3 to 18 months.

And since there are 22 payment days in a month, you’ll need to make an average of 396 payments. How much is that if you pay daily?

The amount of each payment would be $580.80, with an APR of 34.29% — a bit higher than any rate for other traditional term loans.

A working capital loan is ideal for any business in need of fast cash to take care of taxes, payroll, and other operational costs. However, a small business loan does come at a higher price. That’s because you’re paying for convenience and speed.

The higher rates and the short terms offer reduced paperwork and faster funding approval than the traditional term loan. They don’t have to be bad investments, though. It may be what you need for your business to grow. You can refinance your small business loans down the road as your business’ financial health improves.

Just be mindful enough to sort through your options thoroughly before determining that a working capital loan is the right financing option for you.
