What are the benefits?

There are some benefits and some negatives to online short term loans. We recommend that loans should only be used when you need emergency funding. Here are some benefits when you need some quick cash:

  • Instant decision – get a decision in a matter of seconds.
  • Quick payout – Nearly all lenders pay out on the same day.
  • 100% online – no awkward or embarrassing phone calls asking why you need the money.
  • Fewer requirements compared to other loans. Lenders are less strict for a short term loan compared to a personal loan.
  • Bad credit considered – You still have a chance to get a loan even if you have bad credit.
  • Quick and Easy – some may say this is a negative, however, if you do need quick cash, short term loans are quick and easy to get.

It’s not all benefits though, short term loans UK can be expensive, especially if you take them over a long period and don’t pay them back on time. It can also be easy to get caught in the cycle of relying on them and taking another one out to pay the next loan. If this is happening to you, we do recommend you seek financial help from a debt charity that can help.

Do I qualify for a short-term loan?

Not everyone is eligible for a loan, so you need to make sure you are the following:

  • 18 or over – All applicants need to be over the age of 18 to apply.
  • Have a UK bank account – The lender needs to be able to pay the money into a UK bank account.
  • Have an income – you need to have an income to receive a loan, otherwise you won’t have any chance to pay the loan back.
  • Live in a UK residence – You need to be living in the UK with a UK residency.

Have a mobile phone and email address – Your lender will need to be able to contact you if required.

FAQs on Short Term Loans

These types of loans are usually over a 3 to 12-month period. However, they can be extended or paid back early. If you are paying back early please make sure there are no early repayment penalties.

Short term loan APR is calculated by dividing the amount of interest paid by the amount borrowed. Then you want to multiply that by 365. Then divide that number by the length of the repayment term and multiply by 100.

Example – if you borrowed £100 over 30 days and paid £124 back (interest of £24) then you would calculate the APR like this: (24 / 100 = 0.24), (0.24 * 356 = 87.6), (87.6 / 30 = 2.92), (2.92 * 100 = 292% APR)

These are small-value loans over a short period of time.  An example would be £100 over a 3-month period. Short-term loans usually come with very high APR because they are paid back over a short period of time. These loans are usually £1500 or below. Loans above £1,500 are usually personal loans.

Short-term loans are small loans over a 3-6 month period, whereas payday loans are usually small loans over a 1-month period.

If you can’t afford the repayments, don’t take out the loan. Missing payments can damage your credit score and in some cases leave you with a CCJ.
