How can a Spotcap loan meet your bridging loans needs?

Use the funds you borrow from us for a wide range of commercial activities, including:

  • Protect the payroll

    You can’t afford for working capital fluctuations to prevent you paying your employees on time. While payroll payments are predictable, receipts from customers don’t always come in as expected. That’s where flexible access to a short-term bridging loan alternative from Spotcap can help.

  • Invest in a major project

    Securing a major piece of work requires investment of time and money. A bridging loan allows you to fund that investment before it starts generating income.

  • Property purchase

    Real estate transactions are the traditional home of the bridging loan. Because it can take a while to finalise mortgage arrangements, short-term finance can let you move ahead with a purchase, or fill a timing gap in your funding.

  • Stock your shelves

    Whether you’re a retailer, a manufacturer or a service provider, there are times when you need to stock up in advance of making sales. A tailored short-term business loan could be the answer to this bridging finance need.

Spotcap finance benefits over bridging loans

Because it’s a short-term finance solution, a business bridging facility needs the flexibility to respond to changing circumstances. This capability to adapt is a primary feature of our business loans.

A traditional bridging loan lets you borrow a specified amount, on which you pay interest and charges. A Spotcap loan begins with a line of credit, where you can choose how much to borrow as you need it. In the early stages you can borrow in smaller amounts, giving you more control over interest costs.

Each withdrawal becomes a business loan that’s typically repayable over 7 to 15 months. You can choose to repay early with no penalty fee. Because it’s so flexible, a Spotcap business loan is a popular short term bridging loan solution.
