|Short Term loan||Long term Loan|
|Purchase stock and materials||Vehicle or Machinery purchase|

Depending on the finance company and the conditions of the loan it may be ok for you to take a loan over a long term for a short-term reason but you should settle the loan early when the funds become available.
Short-term loans are usually taken as you need funds until a large sale is finalised or a job you have been working on is completed.
Simon is working on a project which is going to take him a year to complete and get paid. He does not have enough money to cover the cost of completing the project without it impacting the rest of his business.
He has decided to borrow $50,000.00 to cover the cost of materials and staffing for this project. Once the project is completed he stands to receive a payment of $120,000.00 so this is of great benefit to him.
The decision has been made to borrow the funds in the short term and he has two options in front of him a short-term unsecured loan or a 5-year loan using his property as security:
|12 Month Loan||5 Year Loan|
|Early Settlement Fee||$0.00||$75.00|
As you can see both loans give Simon access to the funds he requires however the 12-month loan comes at a higher interest rate and larger weekly repayments.
Using his property as security and taking the loan over 5 years means he can use the money he receives from his completed project to pay back the loan. He will also have the benefit of his weekly repayments being $889.40 less putting less strain on his cash flow and saving himself $1,734.85 in interest repayments
It is important you take the right loan for your business and these are some of the risks:
What you need to look at is the early exit fees from a long-term loan and compare these with the Interest rate you will be paying on a short-term loan. Our early settlement fee is $75 and may be worthwhile taking as the interest rate is likely to be lower.
