    I really would like to find out why once you go into review you be in there so long. I have been in review for two weeks.

    Hi Johnetta,

    I can’t say for sure, but the time from application to funding can take anywhere between one week and three months, depending on the loan product, the speed at which you provide the necessary documents, and other factors. Hopefully, you’ll start moving along in the process. Best wishes!

      Spent almost two weeks going through paper work and filling out financial forms just to get their rejection letter, what a waste of time jumping through their hoops. We would have made much better progress dealing with another company. Thank SmartBiz for wasting my time!

        Be aware, their process is not any better than applying at the banks, as soon as they get you to the website its endless, they requirements keeps coming up. I have been asked by my case manager to provide him with the profit and lose statement and sure did on Nov 28. and its been 2 weeks and had two days off in order to get all the documents they need. and he kept asking for more and more documents to provide, after all that two weeks after submitting the profit and lose he told me (OHH I’m sorry the profit and lose didn’t meet the initial requirements). DON’T WAIST YOUR TIME WITH THIIS COMPANY.

            Have a current tax lien working out payments, but great cash flow to go along with killer interest on CC debt used to finance. Business 16 years, Revenue 650-700K. Any recommendations.

              Hi Drew,

              Funding Circle and Lending Club sometimes work with businesses that have tax liens.

              Hope that helps!
