Frequently Asked Questions

What is a short term loan

Short-term loans are loans with a principal ranging between $200 – $2000, with repayment terms between 16 days and 12 months. Repayment typically involves a direct debit from a borrower’s bank account, or a deduction from their pay. Lenders who offer short-term loans are required by law to display a warning that provides other borrowing options than a short-term loan.

Should I take out a short term loan

Consumers facing a cash shortfall between paydays may consider taking out a short-term loan, as they provide relatively fast access to cash. This might be done if the borrower doesn’t have a credit card or overdraft facilities, or any other fast access to funds. Short-term loans are a relatively expensive solution, however, so the decision to take out a short-term loan should include close assessment of all fees, charges, and interest costs involved.

How I apply for a short term loan

The majority of short-term loans available in the market can be applied for online. There are still a number of store-front lenders throughout Australia where consumers can apply in person. The application process tends to vary depending on the lender, although most lenders online provide similar functionality to select the loan amounts and repayment terms. Lenders may also ask applicants to input their credit rating which may affect the amount of interest applied to the loan. Applicants will need to provide the following information:

  • Personal contact details, including a form of identification and the reason for the loan
  • Details of employment, including salary, payslips, payment frequency and evidence of your regular income (if self-employed, you may need to provide some evidence of business activity statements or tax verification)
  • Information about pre-existing debts, credit or other assets
  • Details of any Centrelink payments, or another social benefit.
  • Lenders, on occasion, may request additional documentation not listed above. In most cases a decision is likely to be made within a few minutes, however, it may sometimes be longer depending on your application and additional information that may be required.
