Features of Business Fuel loans

  • Loan amount. Generally, you will be able to borrow 100% of your monthly sales. So if you make $10,000 a month you will be able to borrow up to and including $10,000.
  • Loan terms. Business Fuel offers loan terms of between 0.25 and 1 months. Keep in mind that each application is considered individually, and the loan terms you are approved for are flexible to suit your business. If you pay off the loan early, you may be eligible for a rebate
  • Turnaround time. Business Fuel offers a quick turn-around time for loans, and is able to transfer you your loan amount within two days.

How much does the loan cost?

There are a few fees and charges that you should be aware of before you apply. While there are no application fees, early termination fees or account-keeping fees, you will be charged a once-off facility fee that is factored into your loan amount, so there is nothing to pay upfront. This fee will be determined by your loan amount, by the strength and consistency of your business and whether you are able to offer security with your loan.

Pros and cons of a Business Fuel cash advance

  • Fast approval and turnaround time. This lender operates online and so is able to offer a quick and easy application process online or over the phone, and can have your loan amount transferred to you in two days. Enquiries can be made over the phone if you prefer.
  • Cash flow flexibility. Each loan is considered on a case-by-case basis, with Business Fuel considering your cash flow to help determine your repayment structure.
  • No security required. Most of Business Fuel’s loans are unsecured, meaning less risk to your business assets. However, certain loans may require security.
  • Rebate. If you are able to pay your loan within three months, you may be eligible for a fee rebate
  • Facility fee not fixed. As the lender determines the facility fee on a case-by-case basis, you are unable to directly compare fees with other similar lenders.

  • You can demonstrate a minimum turnover of $10,000 per month in total sales.
