What are short term loans?
Short term loans are a cash allowance that are scheduled to be repaid within 6 months. They are usually for smaller amounts than mortgages and can be approved on the same day of application. Repayments are made in manageable instalments within the contract period and include a fixed interest rate. They can be used to meet an unexpected cost, provide funds before payday or cover emergency appliance repairs.
Representative Example: based on the last working day of each month
Interest rate 255.5% pa (fixed) Representative 939.5% APR

What are the benefits of short term loans?
They may help you in a financial emergency or meet an unexpected expense. They can be used to avoid charges for things like void cheques, unauthorised bank overdrafts and credit card fees, helping you protect your credit rating. Applications can be approved in a few hours and repayments can be personalised to suit your individual requirements.
What can short term loans be used for?
While there is no fixed purpose for a loan, there are a number of different applications that the money may be useful for. Our loans can work to help borrowers get out of a difficult financial position in the short term, or pay for an unexpected expense. Some of the common uses include:
Having a number of outstanding debts can be overwhelming and stressful for many people. Consolidating a number of existing debts into a more manageable lump sum can reduce this financial burden and help you get back on your feet. A loan can be used to pay off a number of smaller debts, with repayments only required for the one loan thereafter.
Many people do not have the money set aside to deal with unforeseen repairs, such as a boiler breakdown, oven malfunction or vehicle damage. If your car, oven or boiler is an immediate necessity and you need it fixed quickly, short term lending can provide the money you need to get the required repairs done.
We all have months where we find ourselves paying out more than usual. If you cannot afford to meet these extra expenses but are sure you can afford repayments, a loan may be the best solution over a short term period.
What if my circumstances change?
If your circumstances change and you are struggling to make repayments, let a member of our team know. We will do everything we can to help you get back on track but it is important to remember that short term lending is not a suitable long term financial solution. If you are experiencing financial difficulties, contact us directly and seek advice from a free and impartial organisation if you feel you need to.

Are short term loans safe?
Before applying for a loan, you need to evaluate your current financial situation and make sure that you can afford the required repayments. It is important to make sure that you are borrowing from a Financial Conduct Authority approved and regulated lender like Moneyboat to ensure you get a fair deal.
Short term loans are not a suitable solution to a long-term financial problem and you need to make sure that you educate yourself about the alternatives before applying.
