Do I need a deposit for a business loan?

A deposit may be required for some loans, but not always, it depends on a number of factors including the loan size and the financial product selected. For new businesses it may depend on what money you’ve already invested or plan to invest in setting up your business. A CFI Finance Specialist can give you a better indication of whether or not a deposit may be required based on your specific circumstances.

Can the interest rate of a CFI loan increase?
No. The rate is fixed for the term of the loan, giving you complete certainty around future repayments.*
*Excluding circumstances where a borrower has defaulted on a loan
