Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


How do I qualify for a new business loan?


When it comes to new business loans, our requirements are straightforward. As responsible business lending partners, our eligibility criteria are designed to ensure that a loan is conducive to your business’s financial health and operational stability. Here are the four online business loan requirements you have to meet if you want to apply with us.


Business credit score


Your business credit score is a critical indicator of your financial history. At OnDeck, we require a minimum score of 400. If you don’t know your credit score, you can check out our ‘Know Your Score’ online tool. It’s fast, secure, and risk-free. 


Cash flow


A minimum gross annual turnover of $100,000 is required at OnDeck. This criterion ensures that your business can engage with new opportunities and manage the repayment structure of our new business loans effectively.


No bankruptcy


Stability is key in business operations. Therefore, a clear history with no instances of bankruptcy, either prior or recent, is necessary. This requirement underlines the importance of a stable financial foundation for both the business and the lender.


Business age


Your business must have been operational for at least a year to qualify for a loan with OnDeck. This duration demonstrates your business’s ability to sustain operations and navigate the initial challenges that new ventures often face.


What documents do I need to apply for a new business loan?


Our new business loans require that you provide six months of business bank statements. With these statements, we’re able to do a thorough analysis of your cash flow and credit score. If you’re applying for Lightning Loan Plus, which are business loans that offer larger loan amounts, we also require accountant-prepared financial statements from the past twelve months. 


These documents ensure that we have a thorough understanding of your business’s fiscal health. Thus, we can tailor a loan solution that aligns with your needs, capabilities, and growth ambitions while safeguarding your financial future.


How long does it take to get approved for a new business loan?


In the fast-paced world of business, we know that time is of the essence when dealing with business funding needs. The good news is that, with OnDeck, you can get a decision in as little as thirty minutes. We’re committed to delivering fast approvals to meet your urgent financial needs, ensuring you’re equipped to seize opportunities as they arise. 


The Koala Score 


Wondering how we’ve streamlined the process to achieve such speedy results? At the heart of our online business loan approval process is our Koala Score, one of the most predictive credit scoring engines in Australia. 


By taking away human bias in favour of data-driven insights, it ensures that every loan decision is rooted in a comprehensive analysis of your business’s health and potential. This advanced scoring capability enables us to provide loan amounts that truly reflect your business’s potential, often surpassing what other loan companies might offer.


The speed, innovation, and accuracy of our online loan application ensure that OnDeck stands as a pivotal partner when it comes to new business loans.
