When a family of former NFL players wanted to move its business to the big leagues, they wanted a funding partner that provided a caring, personalized approach to small business loans. They turned to National Funding to help kick off their growth, and have had a “special” partnership ever since.
Small Business Loans Designed For You
No matter what your business funding needs are, we have a small business loan for you. Our Loan Specialists are here to help you find the right loan for you and your business, simply apply online to see which funding solutions fit your needs.
We understand how difficult it can be when a bad credit score prevents you from building a good one. That's why we have loan options for business owners with bad credit. Bad credit shouldn't affect your ability to receive financial solutions so our Loan Specialists look at your business potential, rather than your credit score to find alternative lending options for you.
Traditional lenders sometimes require personal collateral when signing up for business loans. With our unsecured or uncollateralized small business loan, we do not require such collateral. That way you can focus on the more important aspects of your business without having to worry about losing your personal assets. Our unsecured business loans can provide you with peace of mind, flexibility, and financial stability.
In order for businesses to run smoothly, they need on-hand cash to cover expected or unexpected expenses. Working capital loans can give your business access to cash when you need it most to cover these crucial expenses. A working capital loan allows you to have flexibility with your finances, maintain business ownership, and have access to cash for immediate expenses. Our working capital loans can help you have cash-on-hand to help cover everyday business expenses when money is tight or business is slow, and can even work as a business expansion loan.
National Funding is proud to support small business owners from all types of backgrounds, including women-owned businesses. We are here to help women-owned businesses grow by offering loans to help them take their business to the next level. Women-owned businesses in the United States continue to grow in numbers, but women are still less likely to be approved for loans and funding opportunities compared to men. We understand that being a female business owner is not always easy. That's why we're here to help design loans that better help you fulfill your business goals.

True to our mission, we encourage you to read the following policies and learn how they affect you as a client.
(1) 24 hours:
Fast approvals and 24 hour funding subject to receipt of required documentation, underwriting guidelines, and processing time by your bank. Funds are deposited into your business checking account as soon as the next business day after approval and acceptance of terms.
(2) Early payoff discounts:
National Funding offers special opportunities for its customers to terminate contracts early and receive a discount in the process. Equipment Finance customers who pay off the total remaining balance early, at any point during the contract, will automatically receive a 6% discount off the total remaining balance. Working Capital customers who pay off the total remaining balance in full within the first 100 days of the contract will automatically receive a 7% discount off the total remaining balance. We do not currently offer a discount on our lease contracts. Customers must pay off the balance in full, be current, and in good standing to take advantage of the discount within the time parameters.
(3) Automatic payments:
Loan payments are withdrawn via Automatic Clearing House (ACH) Monday through Friday excluding bank holidays.
(4) Wide variety of payment options:
- Equipment Financing: payments are remitted monthly with terms of 2-5 years
- Working Capital Loan: payments can be remitted daily or weekly with terms of 4 months up to 24 months
(5) Potential Tax Savings:
The Section 179 Tax Deduction allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year. Meaning, if you buy (or lease) a piece of qualifying equipment, you can deduct 100% of the purchase price from your gross income. You can secure the equipment, tools, and technology you need, while also taking advantage of significant tax deductions - up to $1,000,000. Consult your tax professional for more details.
(6) Guaranteed lowest payment:
Pursuant to the terms and conditions specified in these Rules and Restrictions of the Guaranteed Lowest Payment, National Funding guarantees to provide the lowest payment on equipment leased through National Funding, for lease terms from 24 to 60 months, or to pay $1000 towards qualifying executed leases. Lease payment comparisons must be based on a lease in excess of $10,000, for approved equipment, and with the same terms and conditions as those offered by National Funding within seven days that the National Funding terms are issued. To be eligible, customers must provide a competitive lease quote without contingencies, and vendor invoice, and in the name of the lessee within seven calendar days of the date National Funding issues its terms. Guarantee only valid on competitive equipment leases. Equipment finance agreements do not qualify.
In the event that the monthly lease payment amount from the competing lease company or bank is lower than the monthly payment that is being offered by National Funding for the same equipment and pursuant to the same terms, National Funding will verify the validity and accuracy of the competing leasing company’s or bank’s payment options, terms and the vendor quote. National Funding has the option, in its sole discretion, to either beat the competing leasing company’s or bank’s monthly payment rate, or pay $1000 to the lessee. The lessee must provide National Funding with the competing company’s or bank’s signed lease agreement with payment terms/options, and take delivery of the equipment. Payments will be made within 30 days, and lessee is responsible for any taxes.
The Guaranteed Lowest Payment is available to both new and established customers of National Funding. This offer is valid for new lease applications only. The Guaranteed Lowest Payment is not retroactive — a previously funded equipment lease with National Funding is not eligible for the Guaranteed Lowest Payment. Only non-contingent offers of lease terms and payment are eligible. Offers made to lessee that include subsidization by manufacturers and/or vendors will not be considered in comparing competing offers.
The Guaranteed Lowest Payment may be discontinued at any time without notice.
To participate in the Guaranteed Lowest Payment program, if you have a lease agreement and vendor quote which you believe will qualify for the program, contact your National Funding Lease Manager.
