How does a Prospa Business Line of Credit work?

Unlike a regular business loan, a line of credit is not paid as an up-front lump sum, but can be drawn on if and when needed. You only repay the amount that you have used and can continue to access the funds, provided you make your repayments.

You can get a line of credit of $2,000 to $100,000, which can then be accessed as many times as needed throughout the 12-month term. If you wish to extend the term, your business will need to be reassessed by Prospa, and this can be done via phone.

You are charged interest on the funds you have drawn down, and interest is calculated daily and charged weekly. You will receive a rate from 14.95% p.a. but your rate will vary based on Prospa's assessment of your business.

Features of a Prospa Business Line of Credit

  • Coronavirus SME Guarantee Loans. Under the Australian Government's Coronavirus SME Guarantee Scheme, Prospa are offering business lines of credit of up to $250,000. Loans have no repayments or fees payable for the first 6 months, and are available on terms of up to 2 years. Terms and conditions apply.
  • Flexible amounts. You can get a credit limit of $2,000 to $100,000, depending on your business's needs.
  • Quick access to funds. You can be approved and receive your funds within 24 hours.
  • 12-month term. You can use and re-use the credit as much as you want during the term.
  • Risk-based interest rate. You will receive a rate from 14.95% p.a. depending on your business's situation.
  • Weekly repayments. Prospa will set up weekly automatic repayments that cover interest, as well as 1% of the principal.
  • Additional repayments. You can choose to make additional payments to reduce the amount of interest you pay.

Fees and charges

  • Line activation fee. You will need to pay an up-front $195 fee.
  • Monthly subscription fee. You will also be charged a $25 fee each month from the first time you make a draw down on the credit limit.
