Long-term business loans explained

Long-term business loans are a great way for small to medium-sized businesses to borrow money so they can grow. Unlike our short-term business loans that must be repaid within a year, long-term small business loans can be paid back over several years. Most types of long-term business loans tend to have lower monthly repayments because of the duration. This allows you to invest in the longevity of your business, without impacting the day-to-day operations and cash flow. Our long-term business loans are an ideal way to finance young companies that are looking to take the next step in their business growth. At Nucleus Commercial Finance, we make it our mission to support as many SMEs as we can. In fact, we’ve already lent over £2 billion to businesses like yours across the UK. If you’re ready to take the next step with your business, we’re here to help. Once you’ve been accepted, you could receive your long-term business loan in as little as 24 hours.

The main advantage of a long-term small business loan is that you can borrow a significant amount of money and repay it over a longer period. This means that your immediate cash flow won’t be affected, and it won’t impact day-to-day operations.

Whether you’re looking to launch a new product, expand your services or relocate to a larger HQ, this long-term cash support allows you to take your business in the right direction, providing you with greater financial freedom and flexibility.

Long-term business loans will also help your company build a worthy credit rating, which could help improve your chances of securing larger loans in the future, as long as repayments are made.

However, if you’re looking at taking out an unsecured long-term business loan, you might not be able to borrow as much as you need and have to resort to taking out a secured loan. If you default on repaying a secured long-term loan, your assets may be at risk.

Before taking out a long-term business loan, there are a few things you should consider. Because long-term business loans tend to be for larger sums of money, you will need to show that your business isn’t a risk. If you’re a small business looking to loan a large amount of money, you may be required to secure it against an asset, such as business equipment or property.

Long-term business loan lenders will want to make sure the risk of you defaulting on a payment is low, so your financials must be in good order before you apply. Lenders will look into all aspects of a business’s financials, including their credit score and even detailed plans regarding how you’ll be investing the money.

Ultimately, before taking out any sort of debt financing, you should make sure you can afford the monthly repayments. A long-term business loan calculator can help you do the sums and you should make sure you create a forecast for best and worst-case scenarios too.
