Aspire's competitive revolving line of credit is an excellent option for startups in search of short-term financing with little to no requirements.
SME Unsecured Term Loan:
Lending applicants can borrow up to S$500,000 at a fixed interest rate and are eligible as long as they've met the other eligibility criteria (which include not having any financial or operational restrictions). Interest rates range from 1% monthly all the way up to 2%.
ASPIRE Revolving Credit Line:
This product comes with a 6-month term loan per withdrawal and works similarly to a credit card, meaning that borrowers only get charged interest on the amount they actually borrow. Aspire's progressive discount applies to remaining interest fees pro-rated according to the length of time left in each individual term loan agreement; if you repay your loan one month earlier than expected, then you will receive 20% off any future charges
Peer-to-peer lending is a new financing method that allows SMEs with little credit history or SMEs that need short-term bridging loans to crowdfund and raise money.
A P2P lending platform enables such activities on an industrial level, allowing businesses to get the loans they need without having to spend time going from lender to lender in search of assistance.
If you're a small to medium enterprise without the cash or credit history necessary for bank loans and other forms of funding, peer-to-peer lending may be just what your business needs. P2P lenders provide financing based on applicants' credit scores that are determined by factors like how long they've been in business, their previous financial transactions (especially those involving repayment), and more.
Licensed P2P lending operators must have a Capital Markets Services License and will have to comply with the controls and disclosures required of it under the MAS Circular No. CMI 27/2018 (securities-based Crowdfunding Circular)(issued 23 August 2018).
Currently, Funding Societies (FS Capital) and Validus Capital are involved in the Temporary Bridging Loan program.
What does it mean?
Given the Risk-Sharing by Enterprise Singapore, the above lenders might be more incline to approve 'borderline' cases given the 70%-30% risk-sharing.
What is Temporary Bridging Loan?
The TBLP was introduced to help enterprises access working capital.
As announced in the Solidarity Budget on 6 Apr 2020, the Government will enhance the TBLP further with 90% risk share. The enhancement will apply to new applications initiated from 8 April 2020 until 31 March 2021. For applications that are pending approval from PFIs, enterprises are advised to speak to their PFIs on their eligibility.
As announced on 12 Oct 2020, TBLP will be extended from 1 Apr 2021 to 30 Sep 2021. Under this extension, the Government’s risk-share on the loan will be lowered to 70% (90% currently) with the maximum loan quantum lowered to S$3 million (S$5 million currently). This is to calibrate the support for businesses as the economy gradually recovers.
The use of P2P lending platforms for SMEs is becoming increasingly popular because they can approve loans as quick as 24 hours after the application has been made. This convenience and speed make them appealing to those with urgent needs, such as small business owners who may need funds quickly or entrepreneurs looking to expand their business
While conventional banks might take 2-3 weeks to get the loan application approved and disbursed.
Most PFIs will require the standard documents listed below for processing:
Latest 6 months company’s operating account
Latest 2 years company audited/ management report
Latest 2 years notice of assessment of directors/shareholders
Photocopy of directors/shareholders NRIC (front and back)
Some may ask for additional documents such as the company’s debtor aging list, corporate Notice Of Assessment, GST tax filing, etc.
