Bridging or Working Capital Loans



A bridging loan is a short-term loan used as funding for a business until a borrower has a more permanent source of finance in place or has the cashflow to clear the debt in full. While a working capital loan is a type of short-term loan used to finance a company’s everyday operations. The goal of working capital loans is to provide working capital for short-term expenditures, such as wages, rent, stock, debt service payments, or to finance activities, such as sales and marketing or research and development.


A short-term loan from a private lender for bridging finance or as a working capital solution is often a great choice for many businesses. Usually a bank will not consider a short-term loan application because they take too long or require regular servicing of the loan (monthly payments) which isn’t possible for the business. Or there may be circumstances that make the business an unfavourable borrower to the bank, but a short-term private lender is able to be more flexible. A short-term lender will focus more on the ‘exit strategy’ the borrower will employ to pay the loan off. If the borrower can show that they have a strong plan to extinguish the debt then usually a private lender will be able to provide finance.
