Loan Application Information 

You begin the process by completing a single page online application that will ask for your desired credit limit and the primary use of the funds, as well as general business information. You will then create an account password.

The business must be a minimum of one year old, and you must be authorized to take out a loan on behalf of your business. Generally, your business must have minimum annual revenue of $125,000.

Headway Capital is available in the following 19 states: Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.

Typical documentation required includes:

  • Business bank statements

  • Corporate income tax returns

  • Personal income tax returns

  • Profit and loss statements

Headway Capital doesn’t base their credit decision solely on your credit score, and there is no indication of a minimum credit score requirement. Instead, they take a “holistic” view of your financial situation, relying very heavily on your business income, as well as your credit history. They do pay close attention to the number of inquiries that are indicated on your credit report, seeing it as a sign of either identity fraud or great financial need.

Once your line of credit is in place, you can access the line anytime that you need to. The minimum draw amount is typically $5,000, but this can vary depending upon the state you live in. And with each draw, you can choose a repayment schedule that works best for you.

To protect your information during the application process, Headway Capital uses secure socket layer (SSL) encryption, McAfee SECURE and Verisign. 

Repayment Terms 

Draws on your line of credit are repaid through auto debits drawn on your business bank account. You have a choice to make those payments on either a weekly or monthly basis.

You will be given the option of repayment terms, or you will be given a predetermined repayment term. Payments will include principal.

There is a 2% draw fee on any draws you take on your line of credit. There are no annual or monthly service fees, however late fees will apply in the event that you miss a payment.

The interest rate charged on your line of credit will vary depending upon your credit and income. It is charged on a monthly basis, at a rate as low as 3.33% per month - which translates to an APR of 40%. On the upper end, the APR could be as high as 100%.
