Loan Repayments

Falling behind on your business loan can be stressful, especially when you don’t have a stable income.

Quick money from another lender can seem like a good idea, but hidden fees or high interest rates may end up costing you more.

There are other ways to get help and avoid getting into more debt. The earlier you get help, the more options you’ll have.

When to seek help

If you’re struggling to pay back the money you owe, ignoring your debt will only make it worse.

Act now if:

  • you can’t keep up with your loan repayments
  • you’re using personal money to pay your business debts
  • you’re thinking about getting a loan from another lender to cover your repayments
  • you’re being chased for money
  • your lender won’t accept your request to change your repayments
  • you’re worried about losing your home.
