Empowering Growth: How Financial Loans Can Transform Your Business

Businesses of all sizes, from startups to established industry players, often find themselves in need of financial support. Financial loans can play a critical role in bolstering cash flow and maintaining operational stability. 


Whether it’s for bridging a temporary gap in finances, investing in growth opportunities, or ensuring the business’s foundation remains solid, the right financing can be a crucial tool for business sustainability and advancement.


This is the very reason OnDeck was created. We offer small businesses fast approval loans with competitive business loan interest rates to ensure they’ll stand strong despite financial challenges.


Are you in need of reliable loan services? Worry not; it’s part of the business ballgame to ask for help to stay in the league despite some missed shots.


The importance of financial support for small enterprises


Financial loans are essential for small businesses. They provide the money needed for important things like buying inventory, new equipment, or covering day-to-day expenses. Money loans help businesses grow, keep cash flowing when money is tight, and offer support during unexpected challenges.


There are different types of financial loans available for small businesses, depending on the institutions offering them:


  • Term loans: These loans give you a certain amount of money that you pay back over time. They’re versatile. You can use them for unexpected expenses, expansions, and more.
  • Lines of credit: This is flexible borrowing. You can use up to a certain amount whenever you need it.
  • Equipment financing: This helps you buy new equipment for your business. The equipment itself can sometimes be used as security for the loan.
  • Invoice financing: If you have customers that haven’t paid their bills yet, you can use those unpaid invoices to get some cash now.


At OnDeck, we’re here to support small businesses in Australia with instalment loans that are fast, easy, and don’t require security. We understand the ups and downs of running a business. That’s why we offer specific loan services to fit your needs.


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


What types of financial loans are available?


At OnDeck, we offer financial solutions designed to meet the unique needs of small businesses across Australia. We’re an online business lending company with services tailored to provide unsecured financing options to support the growth and operational needs of your enterprise.

Here are the two types of financial loans you can choose from:


Lightning Loans®: Our flagship product, Lightning Loans, offers financing ranging from $10,000 to $175,000. These loan deals are ideal for SMEs looking to boost cash flow, purchase stock, acquire vehicles, implement marketing campaigns, or cover general expenses. The application process is straightforward, requiring only six months of recent business bank statements to assess your eligibility.


Lightning Loans Plus: For businesses needing larger loan options, we provide Lightning Loans Plus, ranging up to $250,000. This type of business loan requires six months of recent business bank statements and last year’s accountant-prepared financials for assessment.


How do I apply for a loan online?


If the thought of applying for financial loans feels daunting – having to go to offices to apply for bank loans or having to compare business loans of several loan companies before gathering the necessary documents to begin with the application process – you might have only been looking in the wrong direction. 


Applying for cash loans online with us at OnDeck is a safe process designed to meet the unique financial needs of small businesses across Australia. Here’s a simple step-by-step guide to applying for our unsecured business loans:


  1. Check your eligibility: Before applying, use our ‘Know Your Score’ tool to understand your business's financial health. This quick check won’t impact your credit score and can give you an insight into your eligibility.
  2. Gather the required documents: Basically, you will need to provide six months of recent business bank statements (twelve months if you’re applying for a larger loan for business). This helps us to assess your business's cash flow and credit score, which are crucial for loan eligibility.
  3. Complete the online application: Fill out the application form. It will only take a few minutes to complete. Our self-service checkout functionality makes it easy to apply on your own time, without the need for lengthy paperwork.
  4. Receive a decision: You can expect a decision in as fast as thirty minutes, thanks to our data and technology-led approach to assessing applications for financial loans.
  5. Get funded: Once approved, the funds for your small business loans can be transferred to your account in as little as two hours. The actual time to process and fund loan applications may vary depending on factors like the completeness and accuracy of application materials and verification processes.
