Prospa Business Line of Credit
Manage your cash flow with a business line of credit.
A business line of credit gives you ongoing access to funds that can be used to cover business expenses and help you better manage any cash flow issues. You only pay interest on the amount you use and the funds can be used for any worthwhile business purpose.
For businesses looking to get access to more than $100,000, Prospa also offers traditional business loans up to $300,000.
Note: Under the Government's Coronavirus SME Guarantee Scheme, Prospa are offering small business lines of credit of up to $250,000 with no repayments or fees payable for the first 6 months. Loans under the scheme are unsecured and available on terms of up to 2 years. These loans are 50% backed by the Australian Government. Terms and conditions apply.

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.
