The search for the right business loan can be short and simple. It doesn’t have to involve weeks of researching, days of phone calls, or constant emailing. You can find the right business loan in minutes and get funding in just 48 hours.

Find it hard to believe?

Let me show you how we did just that for Mark, an Australian business owner in need of financing.

Mark’s Wholesale Steel Business

Mark has been the company director of a wholesale steel business for the past twelve years. Mark came to us when he had a turnover of 3.5M per year, no assets, an 80K business loan and 10K in ATO debt.

  • Position – Company Director For The Last 12 Years

  • ABN - 12 Years Registered For GST

  • Turnover – $3.5M A Year, Profit Of $278K For FY17

  • Assets – Not Available

  • Liabilities – A Current Business Loan Of $80K

  • Credit Impairment – None

  • ATO Debt - $10K On A Payment Plan

Mark needed 165K to expand into a second warehouse, which would help him handle the increased demand. He initially sought funding from his bank, however, because he had no assets, they were unable to assist.

Valiant’s Solution

After coming to us, we got Mark approved for a 165K unsecured business loan with a 2-year term through a non-bank lender. He was approved within 48 hours as the business was assessed using up-to-date data from his cloud accounting software.

Mark's business is now booming. With the funds he has secured, he is now taking advantage of new opportunities and has kicked off his growth plans, expecting turnover to grow to 6.3M in FY18!

Mark loved the ease of the application process and he is also finding it easier to sleep at night, knowing he can confidently tackle larger orders as there is now cash on hand!
