Still have your attention? 

Then take a look at how the process works.   Funding Circle takes 7 – 12 days from start to finish if all the required paperwork is submitted as requested.    Let’s give you the sequential steps.   

(1) You complete your 10 minute application online.  Your credit and application information are placed in the confidential portal, and your file will go to an account manager’s queue.

(2) You will hear from your Account Manager within 2 hours (during business hours) for requests of documents.

Then after your application receives a review then you’ll be asked to submit these documents:

  • 1 year Personal Tax Returns for all owners with 20% or more ownership, 
  • 6 Months Business Statements,
  • Fill out a Funding Circle business debt worksheet,
  • Interim Financials {YTD P&L and Balance Sheet} for any over $300,000 request,
  • Guarantor Form only for additional shareholders and/or guarantors,
  • 2 years Business Tax Returns.

(3)  The loan underwriters will give your file a review within 48 hours, possibly giving you a call and making you an offer.

(4) Documents will be sent express to you and you will have 10days to return these documents. 

  • Additional Documents,
  • Most recent personal bank statement,
  • Driver’s License,
  • Completed Funding Circle Wire Transfer form.  
(5) If all goes well in steps 1 – 4 then you will be funded day after receipt of required documents.   The faster the required documents are submitted, the quicker your decision is made.

That sums up the Funding Circle.   Loans range from $25,000 to $500,000, rates range from 5.49% - 27.79% and you may select  between 1 - 5 years with 1 year increments.
