FAQs about Prospa

How are Prospa’s interest rates determined?

Getting a stock standard loan that doesn’t take into account the specifics of your business can leave you paying more or on terms that don’t fit with what you need. You want a loan that is personalised to your business, which is why Prospa does just that. They’ll look at things like your business’s finances, how long you’ve been in business and what industry you’re in.

Prospa provides a loan summary sheet to approved applicants that clearly identifies the annual simple interest rate for the loan and the total interest expense.

What fees are there?

Prospa loans are set up so that you’ll know about any guaranteed fees upfront, including a first-time fee to set up the loan. Once you’ve got the loan, if you fail to make a repayment, you’ll have to pay a direct debit dishonour fee, and for every corresponding repayment not on your agreed schedule, you’ll need to pay a rescheduling fee.

How does the Prospa approval process work?

You can apply for a Prospa business loan online, via phone or on live chat with a real person. You’ll need to complete a short 10-minute form about your business’s finances and operations. If you’re borrowing under $150,000, all you need to provide is your driver's license, ABN and BSB and account number. Loans over $150,000 also require some financial statements like profit and loss and cash flow.

  • Your driver's licence number
  • Your ABN
  • Your BSB and account number
  • Minimum trading history applies

For amounts above $150K and up to $500K you’ll need to demonstrate a minimum $1 million annual turnover and 3 years trading to apply. To apply you will need to have ready:

  • Details about your business (including trading time, ownership details & an active ABN)
  • Property ownership required for Prospa funding in excess of $150K
  • Some basic financial statements like a P&L and cashflow, so we can evaluate the health of your business and see what kind of repayments your business can manage without stress.

Unsecured loan under $100,000

This is why Prospa allows business’ looking for a loan under $100,000 to borrow without any sort of brick and mortar or tangible assets.
