Small Business Loans Without a Credit Check

The small business lending landscape has, without a doubt, improved in recent years. That being said there are still challenges that many businesses and business owners must face, particularly those who are plagued with bad credit. Big bank and other more traditional lenders are simply not willing to take on the risk associated with lending to small businesses with low credit scores.

Small businesses that have poor credit histories and therefore low credit scores typically have valid reasons for why their credit isn’t better. Within the past decade, small businesses were greatly impacted by the recession and the overall economic downturn. When the average Canadian can’t afford to spend as much money, businesses and small businesses in particular suffer. When your business isn’t making enough profit, credit typically becomes your main source of capital to run your business, this in return leads to credit problems.

If you’re looking for a small business loan and have had credit trouble in the past or have no credit history what so ever, fortunately, there are still options for you to get the money you need. Private lenders and smaller financial firms are always more willing to take a chance and help small business owners in need. Below are a few options available to those looking to financially invest more into their businesses but don’t have a high enough credit card score to get a loan from a bank.

Merchant Cash Advance

With a merchant cash advance, you’ll be paid a lump sum in exchange for a percentage of your business’s future credit card sales. Essentially you’ll pay back your lender in very small amounts, using the money you’ve made through customers using their credit cards, every day until you’ve paid your loan off completely.

The great thing about merchant cash advances is that they don’t require collateral or a credit check. They also provide you with extremely quick access to money. Interest rates are typically higher than more traditional small business loans, so make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into before you decide what type of funding is best for your business. (Click here to learn more about merchant cash advances in Canada.)

Business Credit Cards

Small businesses that need access to relatively small amounts of money to pay for daily expenses should consider applying for a business credit card. For those with a poor credit score, your limit may be low and your interest rate may be high. The great thing is that proper use of a credit card will not only allow you to pay for necessities but will help build and improve your businesses credit standing.


Microloans could potentially provide you, as a small business owner, with the financing you need to take your business to the next level. Typically microloan lenders can be found online and are non-profit organizations who work out of major cities in Canada. They are usually more lenient than banks towards borrowers with poor credit. Most microloan lenders tend to focus on working with women and minority business owners but anyone can apply.

Improve Your Credit to Get the Loan you want

While there are lots of great loan options for business owners who don’t want their credit scores to be an issue, having a good credit standing should always be a priority. The good news is there are countless ways for you to improve your business’s credit score while still working towards making your company as successful as you dreamt it would be. (Want more information on how to get a small business loan? Click here.)

Pay Your Bills on Time

Late and missed payments on any of your credit accounts will have a drastically negative effect on your business’s credit score. Do whatever you need to do to always make sure you remember to make your payments on time, set a reminder on your phone or set up automatic payments so you don’t actually need to remember.

The good news is if you’ve missed payments or have made late payments in the past you can correct the negative effect it had on your credit standing, simply start making on-time payments.

Be Cautious with your Credit Cards

While a business credit card can be a great tool, it can also create issues if used irresponsibly. Consider your business credit card a financial tool to help you improve your credit score and help pay for things you absolutely need. Don’t consider it free money that you can spend on whatever you want.

Pre-Pay Bills

If it’s possible for you to prepay bills then we absolutely think you should. Not only will it make sure you always make your payments on time some vendors may offer discounts if you pay in full upfront or before the due date. Plus having a good relationship with your vendors is always a good idea and may be helpful in the future should you ever experience any financial issues.

Run a Lean and Profitable Business

Obviously, every business owner’s main goal is to be profitable, but it’s not always possible. Work on running a lean business where inventory levels and staff hours remain reasonable and suitable, based on how your business is doing.

Getting The Loan You Need

Gaining access to the capital you need to help run your business can be very difficult, especially for small businesses that have less than great credit scores. Fortunately, there are lots of other options out there, so do your research and find an alternative lender who is willing to work with you to help you get the financing you want and need.

How does Max Funding stand out?

Banks have been known to decline business borrowers due to bad credit records. We understand a lot of these situations are due to unpaid invoices, court litigations or many other reasons, and they are not under your control. Our friendly business specialists are trained to assist clients just like you. We take time to understand your circumstances and offer a funding solution that fits your business needs, whether you are a start-up or seek opportunities for growth.

Fast approval for bad-credit business loans from Max Funding

There are a variety of reasons that your business could be rejected for a business loan – and bad credit is certainly at the top of this list. Perhaps the business has gone through bankruptcy in the past, or maybe it has missed or been late on previous payments to creditors or vendors. If issues like these are showing up on your company’s credit history, banks will be wary of lending you money.

In some cases, the problem may be as simple as a lack of credit. If the company is a start-up and its operators don’t have a credit history of their own, lenders will essentially look at the enterprise as an unknown entity. With so many organisations applying for loans, they’re going to have a difficult time justifying providing funds to yours.

But at Max Funding, we believe that every business should have an opportunity to thrive. We examine each application on a case-by-case basis, as we’re eager to provide business loans to our clients with bad credit when we believe that they have a strong chance of succeeding.

If you feel that lenders have not given your organisation the chance it deserves, it’s time to turn to Max Funding. You can apply for a bad-credit business account right here on our website and receive the capital you need to keep your operations running smoothly.

What is a bad credit business loan?

Bad-credit business loans represent a specialised niche of financial products that are intended specifically for businesses that either have a low credit rating or have not been in operation long enough to have a credit score at all. Providing loans of this nature is a speciality of Max Funding.

In determining whether to accept a business loan application, banks may look at the business’ credit score as well as scores of the owner or business operators. There are several angles of approach that a lender can take in determining a specific enterprise’s credit worthiness. But if they don’t like what they see, they’re not going to approve that loan.

This makes bad-credit business finance all the more important for small or struggling companies. Without lenders who specialise in providing finance of this nature, few small businesses would stand a chance of making it through the early growing pains. Instead, they’d find themselves swallowed up and overwhelmed by what ultimately amounts to a hostile business environment.

Max Funding uses a different set of criteria than mainstream lenders in determining whether to loan money to applicants. We aren’t bound by the rigid constraints of mainstream lenders, and this allows us to provide our applicants with tailored solutions that suit their specific needs and purposes – even if they have bad credit or no credit at all.

What do I do if I have no collateral?

Not only a bad credit rating can derail the loan-approval process. In some cases, the borrower may have a reasonable credit score but no way to secure the loan with collateral. If your business is in a situation like this, there’s still hope, as Max Funding can provide unsecured bad-credit business loans to businesses in Australia.

An unsecured loan gives your business fast access to capital without the need for collateral. This is a particularly useful type of loan for small-but-growing businesses that have already taken out more substantial loans in order to launch their operations but still find themselves in need of a short-term finance solution.

Successful small businesses are no stranger to cash flow issues. In fact, money troubles of this nature are often a sign of rampant growth and development. The number of incoming orders may mean that you have to overextend yourself by buying inventory and hiring new part-time staff just to keep the product moving. And all of this comes at a steep initial expense. Knowing that future revenue is going to surge to account for this is no consolation in the short-term.

But this is precisely the type of scenario we can work with at Max Funding. If it’s clear that a loan today will help keep the business afloat during a period of growth, then we’d likely be delighted to supply you with a short-term unsecured loan.

There’s no need for collateral. Instead, simply borrow the funds you need now and commit to a timely repayment structure lasting anywhere from one month to a year. As long as your turnover is high enough and your credit is within reasonable bounds, our underwriters are willing to take a chance on you.

Apply for flexible bad-credit business funding today

Financial difficulties can be an immense source of stress for small businesses and start-up. Bigger enterprises operate on a much grander scale, and lenders are generally more willing to work with them, as their credit scores are almost certainly well-established and there’s no shortage of collateral in-house. But small businesses don’t always have the same advantages.

If you’re tired of suffering through loan-application rejections, it’s time to give Max Funding a chance. It’s our goal to provide you with the highest-possible loan amount based on the information you provide us with in your online application. We’ll look at a mixture of your assets and business activities to determine which type of loan is best suited to your situation.

Applying for a loan through our website is refreshingly easy. The process begins with the small contact form located right here on the screen. Simply fill out the form and let us know how much you would like to borrow and what the purpose of the loan is. You can also give us an idea of your credit history through the form so that we can better tailor a product to suit your needs.

Our system is available to accept applications 24/7, and you’ll receive a near-instant decision as to whether we’ll be able to supply you with a loan. Processing is fast, and the funds will be in your hands quickly enough to keep your cash flow buoyant.

Apply for a bad credit business now through our website, and feel free to contact us directly should you have any questions.
