What is a Short Term Loan?

A short term loan is a loan taken up for either personal or business financial reasons and usually has to be repaid with principal and interest over a repayment period of between six months to a year.

These loans are usually taken to solve a temporary problem of liquidity for a business, or for a person with a sudden need for finance

Are There Any Differences Between Short Term Loans and Payday Loans?

  • Term

    The tenure of short term loans is generally longer than that of payday loans. A short term loan usually has a flexible repayment schedule, over a period of up to a year. A payday loan as the name suggests is a loan obtained for a month or less, to be repaid on the next day.

  • Amount

    The money you can borrow from a short term loan largely depends on the loan’s context and the ability of the borrower to repay. A payday loan is generally limited to the amount a borrower can repay within a 30 day period, based on their salary or wages.

What Can a Short Term Loan Be Used for?

  • A short term loan is designed to help to take you through a difficult or unexpected financial situation. Whatever the reason, it can help to put your mind at ease while your finances are sorted out.
  • In business, it might be a temporary shortage of liquidity due to delays in debtors, payments, or demands from creditors, or it may be as simple as the need to invest in a piece of new office equipment.
  • For individuals, it can be used to consolidate debts so that you only have one regular repayment instead of several, or there may be other reasons like a family wedding or buying a new car at a time when you are temporarily short of funds.

Can I Apply for a Short Term Loan with Bad Credit?

Generally speaking, short term loans are simply based on your ability to repay and service the loan. Bad credit is taken into account and usually results in a smaller loan amount and a shorter repayment period and in many cases, it also attracts a higher interest rate.

  • How Does a Short Term Loan Work?

    Like any other loan, a short term loan is simply borrowing money and paying it back at a later date, usually with an interest charge. Unlike some other longer-term loans like mortgages etc, a short term loan is generally a smaller amount of money and has to be repaid over a shorter time period.

  • Will Short Term Loans Affect My Credit Score?

    A short term loan can affect your credit rating in two ways.

    • If you pay back the loan on time it will improve your credit rating and show you are a good borrower in the future.
    • If you don’t pay back the loan despite repeated requests this will have a negative impact on your credit rating making it more difficult for you to borrow money again.
  • What Happens if My Application is Rejected?

    If your application is rejected you should talk to your lender to find out why. If it is due to insufficient income you can try to reduce your debt level before applying again.

    Another way is to offer a personal asset as security, whether property or a vehicle. You can also try to find someone who will act as a guarantor, provided they have sufficient income themselves.
