What is a Working Capital Loan?

A working capital loan is a loan that businesses can take to finance their everyday operations. Instead of buying long term assets or investments, these loans provide working capital to cover businesses’ short term operational needs.

How a Working Capital Loan Can Work for You

A working capital loan is a loan used to finance everyday financial operations for small businesses that are lacking current cash flow. Working capital loans are used for short-term needs rather than long-term needs, assets, or investments for any given business. This loan type is used to sustain business growth on a daily basis to help you visualize long-term success.

Every business should have cash on hand to cover both planned and unexpected expenses. Cash reserves help cover the everyday fluctuations faced by your business. For those who don’t have the cash flow for everyday expenses, or have a predictable revenue stream, we offer working capital loans as a lifeline to give you access to cash when you need it most.

What are the Benefits of Working Capital Loans?

A working capital loan is the quickest and easiest way for small businesses to receive the lines of funding they need to achieve their full business potential. When businesses don’t have the funding for current expenses, a working capital loan can help make up the financial shortcomings until the business is stable. These funds can go towards whichever expenses need immediate attention to help you grow your business.

Be prepared

Be Better Prepared for the Future with More Capital

While the saying may be ‘business isn’t personal,’ we know small business owners take pride in their companies, and that business truly is personal.

Businesses that are prepared for current financial payments are better prepared for the future growth of their business. For businesses to see long-term success, business owners need to make sure they have the cash flow to keep their business afloat. Without this preparation, businesses will run into late payments, decreased credit scores, and higher interest rates on business loans and future credit lines. By applying for a working capital loan, it will help you with a shortage of short-term financial resources when your business needs it most. Small business capital could make all the difference in the success of your company, and we want to help.

Maintain Ownership

Maintain Ownership of Your Business

Traditional equity investors likely require you to give up a percentage of your business in return for funding, which gives some of the ownership power to the investor. With a working capital loan from a bank or a financial institution like National Funding, you continue to hold ownership over your business and are only required to make the payments that are agreed upon — all with new, working capital.

No collateral

Working Capital Loans With No Collateral Required

Some small business working capital loans require collateral of some sort, but we provide working capital without collateral. Business owners can maintain ownership of their assets while taking out a working capital loan, even when funding needs are imperative. When applying for a working capital loan, we look at the current status of your business which helps us determine the loan amount that suits your business.

Provides flexibility

Provides Financial Flexibility

A working capital loan can be used how you personally see fit for your business, no strings attached. Working capital loans can be used for paying employees, purchasing equipment, paying bills, and more. No matter the financial needs, receiving a working capital loans for your company allows financial flexibility to help you with your business needs.

FAQ: Working Capital Loans

Finding the cash your business needs to pay bills or take on the competition isn't always straightforward. Like most business owners, you probably have questions about loans and financing options. We put together some of the most common questions about working capital loans to help you get the answers you need.

Is it hard to get a working capital loan?
Many small business owners assume getting capital loans is a long, drawn-out process. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be that way! Alternative lenders like National Funding provide loans for businesses with easy online applications and quick response times. In fact, you could see your loan application approved in as little as 24 hours1.
Does working capital include cash?
Most definitions of working capital include cash. This is because business capital is your current assets minus your current liabilities. Cash, like the money you get from a loan, plays an important role in running the current operations of your business.
What does “working capital” tell you?
Your business’ cash reserves and assets can give you a great snapshot of how well you are using business resources. If your business has a lot of assets, including cash, inventory, and accounts receivable, with only a few liabilities, your business is probably in a good place financially. Sometimes, however, you have to wait for a customer to pay an invoice or you need to purchase new inventory and don’t have the cash. That’s where financing solutions can help your business bridge the gap between cash on hand and expected receivables.
Can a working capital loan help me if my business is doing well?
It might sound counterintuitive, but securing a business loan while sales are up could be a smart move financially. Your working capital loan can be used for more than just overdue bills. For example, your restaurant is packed every night, and you have to turn customers away because you're too busy. You decide to move to a new location but to afford the new spot, you'll need extra cash. You could use a loan to help cover the costs of the move, including hiring more servers and installing kitchen equipment. At any point, allow our trustworthy lenders to help you obtain a working capital loan — even if your business is doing well.
What is the difference between working capital and term loan?
A term loan is a long-term loan for funding large capital assets. Working capital is meant to provide you with funding to cover everyday business expenses and operations during a slow season or tight time, while a term loan is used for a longer amount of time and may be planned further in advance. This contrasts with working capital loans which are borrowed for a shorter term and are for operational costs rather than investing in capital assets.
How do I apply for a working capital loan?
You can apply for a working capital loan by filling out an application form with basic financial information about your business. Apply for working capital business loan online from National Funding today.
