Interest charged on the NAB QuickBiz Loan

Interest is calculated daily and is only calculated on your remaining loan balance.

Length of a NAB QuickBiz Loan

The NAB QuickBiz Loan is available as a principal and interest loan for 12, 24 or 36-month term (with monthly repayments). This means you'll be required to pay off your loan over the term you choose.

Fees associated with the NAB QuickBiz Loan

The NAB QuickBiz Loan has no upfront or ongoing fees but costs may apply if you choose to pay the loan off before the end date of the contract.

Residency status

Business and residential addresses must be in Australia. Unfortunately, we're not able to process this application if you, any additional directors/partners or shareholders (holding 25% or more) live overseas or have lived overseas in the past three years.

Providing your financial information

For Xero, MYOB and QuickBooks customers, you can login securely to link your financials. You'll need to have MYOB Essentials, MYOB AccountRight (latest version and version 19 desktop based) or MYOB AccountEdge packages. For all other accounting software, you can upload your financial data in PDF within the application. You may also need  to upload your transaction history from your business trading account as a CSV file.

Changing the lending amount post approval

If you're conditionally approved, you'll have an opportunity to reduce the amount you apply for before finally submitting the application. However, you will not be able to increase your limit once conditionally approved.

Redraws and extra repayments

Redraws aren't available on this loan. You can make extra payments, but economic costs may apply.

The security of your financial information

Security is very important to us. We respect your personal information and we'll take every reasonable step to protect it. For more information visit Privacy Consent and Notification.

Customer login details

As your credentials are encrypted and passed to your accounting package software, we don't see your password or store your credentials.

Reapplying in the future if you've been declined

You can apply as many times as you like. However, you should know that each time you complete an application you'll undergo a credit reference check. Multiple credit checks may adversely impact your credit rating.

Checking your credit history with the credit agencies

Because we're committed to responsible lending, we'll request a credit report of your business entity (and applicant(s)) from the credit reporting agencies. To find out more about credit reporting and credit history checks, visit Privacy Consent and Notification.
