put a blanket lien on your business, the same
risk still applies. Before applying for a

penalties or other fees involved. Review the

The Essentials of Short-Term Loans
Short-term loans work similar to traditional term
loans where youll receive upfront cash that you
repay over a predetermined period of time with
lenders fees and interest. Due to smaller loan
amounts, the repayment period is shorter with
higher interest rates, and you often pay back on
a daily or weekly basis instead of a monthly
schedule. On the contrary, theyre easier to
apply and qualify for, with quick funding. One
thing to remember, short-term loans are among the
expensive loan products available to small
Quick application process and fast access to
capital makes short-term business loans riskier
for the lender. Because of lower amounts and
repayment terms, they typically carry higher
interest rates. Above all, short-term loans make
most sense for businesses, since the best loan is
always the lowest-cost loan.

The Most Common Business Loan Repayment Terms
Lets review the repayment term lengths of the
most common types of business loans. The term
in this context means the predetermined period
within which the borrower has to pay back the
loan, with lenders interests and fees.
Business Lines of Credit
SBA Loans
Medium-Term Business Loans
Traditional Bank Loans
Merchant Cash Advance
Invoice Financing
Equipment Financing
Short-Term Business Loans
SBA loans have the longest repayment terms in the
industry ranging from 5 year to 25 years. The
term of SBA loans depends on the SBA loan
program. The most popular SBA 7(a) Loan Program
has a term of 5-25 years, following SBA CDC/504
Loan with terms of 10-25 years and SBA Microloan
with terms of less than 6 years.
Traditional bank loans are the second business
loan type offering longest terms from 3 to 10
years. With that said, these loans are harder to
qualify for as well.
Medium term-loans function like traditional bank
loans and offer relatively lengthy business loan
terms. These loans can be secured via alternative
lenders with terms from 1 year to five years,
with longer repayment terms than many other
online business loan products.
Business lines of credit offer terms from 6
months to 5 years and can be either short-term or
medium-term in nature.
Invoice financing is a short-term financing
solution that allows business owners to access
cash secured against their outstanding invoices.
The loan term based on the time the invoiced
customer takes to pay off the invoice. They
typically have loan terms of three to six months.
Equipment financing is another financing product
where equipment is purchased and serve as
collateral for the financing. The built-in
collateral makes it less risky for lenders,
allowing them to offer longer terms from two to
five years long.
Short-term loans are determined by their
repayment terms of a year or less. However,
lenders typically offer repayment terms of three
to eighteen months on short-term loans.
Because of unique nature of merchant cash advance
repayment, the loan term is undetermined. These
advances are repaid via businesss daily
credit/debit card sales, and since the daily
payment will vary, theres no determination of
how long repayments will take. Although, the
daily payments are so recurrent, most borrowers
will typically repay merchant cash advances in 4
to 18 months.
Its all about the timing and your needs. If
youre in dire need of quick capital, a
short-term loan can be a better financing
solution. On the contrary, long-term loans takes
time to secure, in contrast with 24 hours it can
take to get cash from a short-term loan.
  • Every loan has its own features and eligibility
    criteria. Some needs short quick solution in
    terms of short-term loans, whereas some ask for
    longer repayment terms. Typically, long-term
    loans are more favorable than short-term loan
    because of larger loan amount, lower interest
    rates, and longer repayment terms. Not to
    mention, long-term business loans are hard to
    qualify for than short-term business loans.

Eventually, the best business loan is the one
that actually helps your small business grow and
