To apply for a small business loan in New Zealand:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age
  • You must be an NZ citizen or Permanent Resident
  • You must show proof of a stable income

To apply for a small business loan in Australia:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age
  • You must be an Australian citizen, Permanent Resident or New Zealand citizen
  • You must show proof of stable full-time or permanent part-time employment
  • You must show proof of identity such as a valid Australian passport or Australian driver’s licence

Business loans with Harmoney are treated just like personal loans. We’ll tell you what documents we need to see at each step of the online application process.

What can I use a small business loan for?

Your business loan can be used to cover many expenses related to your business up to your loan limit, such as buying or upgrading equipment, stocking up on inventory, paying for services and registration fees, or just to help with short-term cashflow. However, a business loan can’t be used for general day-to-day business expenses. Let us know your plans when you make your online loan application.

Does a business loan affect my credit?

Harmoney business loans are taken out as personal loans in your name, so your credit rating will be influenced by your borrowing activity. Simply getting a quote from us for a business loan won’t affect your credit score. Only once you’ve approved the quote and apply will an application show on your credit file.

Even a business loan taken out under your business name may affect your personal credit if you’ve guaranteed the account.

What business records do you need to see?

Harmoney small business loans are a type of personal loan, designed to help people who may only be starting out in business or dealing with cashflow problems. This means we don’t need to see business tax returns, evidence of turnover or how long your business has been operating unless you’re self-employed.

If you are self-employed we will require both your personal and business accounts from the last 3 months. We also need a personal tax return and profit and loss statement from the last financial year.

In Australia you also need to provide a Notice of Assessment.

Can I extend my business loan?

If you already have a business loan with us and you want to borrow more, it may be possible to arrange a loan top up if you’ve maintained a good credit and met your scheduled repayments for 6 months or longer.

Can I use a business loan to buy a car or fleet for my business?

If you need to finance a vehicle purchase, a car loan with Harmoney should be arranged separately.

About business loans

Whether you are establishing a brand new business, expanding an existing company or need extra cash to help with expenses, a small business loan can help you on your way.

It’s important to understand the different aspects of business loans and how they affect you before choosing a loan.

Unsecured business loan

An unsecured business loan is a loan that does not require an asset, such as a car or computer, to be put forward as security. If you fall behind on loan repayments, you will need to pay an extra fee but won’t lose your assets, making this a safer loan option.

Harmoney only offers unsecured loans.

Secured business loan

Secured business loans require an asset to be offered up as security or collateral. If you default on repayments for a secured loan, your assets can be repossessed by your loan provider. Secured loans can sometimes carry lower interest rates but are a risky option due to the possibility of losing your assets.

Secured loans are not offered by Harmoney.

Line of credit

Line of credit can be established with loan providers, though it carries fees and interest, and is subject to eligibility requirements. It’s a service that allows you to draw on credit whenever it’s needed and is only available to established businesses. As Harmoney business loans are personal loans they are open to everyone, based on their individual circumstances.

Fixed vs variable loan

A loan can have one of two types of interest rate, either fixed rate or variable. A fixed interest rate remains the same from month to month, regardless of any external factors, whereas a variable rate will fluctuate in accordance with the market rate.

At Harmoney, our business loans always have fixed interest rates, meaning you can be certain of your payment amounts and are better able to budget.
