How does the Xero integration with Prospa work?
Through our integration with Xero we can offer you the easiest possible finance solution for your business. Simply start our online application to set up your account.

You may be approved for up to $150,000 based on your Xero data alone.
Tell me about the Prospa Business Loan?
Prospa is offering loans of $5,000 to $150,000 to Xero users. The term of the loan is between three and twelve months and the cashflow friendly repayments are either daily or weekly.
How is the Prospa Business Loan different from a traditional business loan?
You can apply for the Prospa Business Loan using your Xero data and receive a response immediately. Application is 100% online and funds can usually be provided the same business day. Traditional business loans reference an interest rate per annum plus other fees and charges. The Prospa Business Loan details the total amount payable upfront inclusive of any interest, fees or charges that is then broken down into either a daily or weekly repayment figure.
How fast will I get a response?
We can provide a response instantly when you share your Xero data securely with Prospa in the cloud.
How fast will I get the money?
We know growing your business is important, so Prospa will work hard to get money to you as soon as possible. If you apply before 4pm on a business day and your application is approved, we can usually have money in your account the same business day.
How much can I borrow?
The total amount of your loan will depend on the specific circumstances of your business. The ProspaScore platform looks at a variety of factors to determine the health of your business - including your Xero data - and based on this information, Prospa may be able to provide you a loan amount up to $150,000. For amounts above $150,000 please contact our team direct on 1300 882 867.
What are the fees?
We know fees can be confusing so we made it simple and transparent – there are no hidden fees and the amount due from day one includes the establishment fee. There are no additional fees (excluding any late payment or default fees) and no penalties for early repayment.
What is the interest rate?
Prospa doesn't charge interest because terms are usually less than 12 months. Instead we offer a factor rate. A factor rate is expressed as a decimal figure not a percent. It varies based on your industry, how long you have been in business, the health of your cash flow and other factors. When a factor rate is used, interest is charged to the principal when the loan is originated.
What can the Prospa Business Loan be used for?
We're totally committed to helping small businesses access the funds they need to grow. Our fast flexible funding can be used for business renovations, marketing, to purchase inventory, new equipment, general working capital and much more.
Is there any penalty for early repayment?
There are no fees for early repayment and no balloon payment at the end of your loan. We are totally transparent with our customers about the total amount due and the date of the final payment. Once you make the final payment your balance will be $0.
How do repayments work?
It's important to offer you easy ways to pay back your loan. We offer daily or weekly repayments that are automatically deducted from your nominated business account, to help you avoid missing repayments.
What is a ProspaScore?
Prospa uses a proprietary lending platform developed specifically for Australian small businesses. The platform analyses over 400 data points to assess the health of a business and provides a ProspaScore used to determine approvals and rates.
Is it safe to link my bank account to the ProspaScore platform?
Yes. We are compliant with all applicable Australian quality and security standards. We also encrypt all personal, sensitive and financial data. We use an advanced bank verification system link to instantly verify your Xero information online so we can provide an immediate response.
