How much can I borrow with a fast business loan?

The amount you can borrow will depend on your recent bank statements and we can provide you with a decision in as fast as 30 minutes. Our dedicated Australia-based Loan Specialists can help provide an indication of your expected loan amount over the phone. We offer flexible term options with weekly repayment options to support your cash flow as you make repayments.
What is a fast unsecured business loan?
OnDeck loans are unsecured business loans, this means that they're not backed by any security, like your home or business equipment. An unsecured loan is also called a working capital loan because it's meant to be used for everyday business expenses, like inventory, marketing campaigns, or hiring new employees.
Unsecured business finance could be a good solution to the problems many businesses face, they are less risky than a secured business loan and the fixed interest rates we offer make the repayment schedule predictable and easy to work with. Unlike a business line of credit or business overdraft, you will have a clear picture of when the loan will be repaid based on the scheduled payments. We can work together to find the best monthly repayments for your business cash flow. Our unsecured business loans range from $10,000 to $250,000.
What documentation do I need for a fast business loan?
It only takes a few minutes to apply. You will need 6 months of recent business bank statements, which can be uploaded at the end of the application via our secure portal.
As we assess each application on a case-by-case basis, you may also need to provide details of your financial circumstances, i.e. assets, debts, income and expenses.

What you can do with a fast business loan
Renovating in the off season
Hannah first started her clothing store online in 2016. After a couple of years of growing, she decided to open a bricks-and-mortar store in Bondi to accommodate her customers' needs and increase storage capacity. While the price and location were right for her budget and customers, the layout wasn't suited for a clothing store.
After trying to make it work for a year, she realised the store needed a renovation. She took out a small business loan to knock down a wall, giving a much more open look and feel. She also redid the floors and painted the walls with funding from the loan.
Hannah shut her doors for a few weeks in the winter season, making it possible for her to re-launch the new space right in time for the summer sales and tourists. With a fresh, enticing environment and space for more customers in the store at one time, Hannah immediately saw a welcome boost in sales.
Upgrading your equipment and machinery
Alex started his own construction business a couple of years ago in Melbourne. He owned the basic supplies and rented specialist equipment based on the specific job requirements. With some marketing and word-of-mouth referrals, his schedule quickly filled up and projects were being booked a couple of months in advance.
After more than a year of steady jobs and turning a profit, Alex decided to upgrade his equipment and buy a few more tools to eliminate the renting costs. He searched for tradie small business loans, and decided to apply through OnDeck. He was keen to take advantage of a massive end of financial year equipment sale he'd seen and OnDeck's fast approval times were appealing.
Renovating in the off season
Sam owns a surf school in Noosa, which has a massive busy season during the summer but tapers off in the winter. After a few years in business, he became familiar with the cycle and wanted to better take advantage of the peak season. He decided the best way to do this was to increase his capacity to serve more customers. That involved buying more boards and hiring extra teachers. He had enough money saved up to buy a couple of boards and hire one person but anticipated quickly booking out within the first couple of weeks, even with the extra help.
To be properly prepared for the next busy season, he needed a cash injection to kickstart this upfront spending and applied for a small business loan to fund the cost. With that money, he was able to buy a dozen boards and hire three seasonal teachers. He more than doubled his profits that summer, paid off the loan, and saved enough money to fund the next year's wages for the summer staff.
What makes OnDeck's fast business loans so quick?
OnDeck is a non-bank lender, which means we aren't a bank, credit union, or building society. We need fewer financial details to be submitted with a loan application and have more flexible criteria to approve loans compared to banks. This streamlines our application and approval process and means you can receive funding faster.
OnDeck is the secure financing service that Australian small business owners can truly rely on. Created to support and empower small businesses with unsecured business loans, we are 100% committed to serving our customers with the smartest financing solutions and a world-class service fitting Australia's leading online lenders.
Rate and Fees
Because non-bank lenders are privately owned institutions, they are able to alter their rates and fees to stay competitive against banks and other non-bank lenders.
Easier and faster application
Banks require a more extensive set of financial documents with loan applications than non-bank lenders. This means that unsecured business loan applications with non-bank lenders are more streamlined and you can receive funding faster.
More flexible criteria
Non-bank lenders will generally have more flexible criteria when it comes to requirements for unsecured business loan applications. This can include requirements such as time in business, minimum business revenue and minimum business credit score. Customer service and customer support can also be an advantage of non-bank lenders.
