How to get another Cash Advance after not paying a previous one.
Step 1: Research companies online that offer merchant cash advances to businesses that have a previous default on an mca cash advance. Closely review restrictions for terms and conditions of approval.
Step 2: TIP – Repayment of a previously defaulted merchant cash advance as well as the amount of time since the default may affect your ability to be approved under different programs. Ask if there is a minimum time requirement since the cash advance default. Know the month and year your business first officially defaulted and the amount of the default. Default reporting drags on time wise in business and personal credit reports and makes it look like the default was much more recent than the original date the merchant cash advance company declared a default. Any payments you made on the default often do not appear on the business and personal credit reports a lender looks at and you will not get credit for any payments made. Provide documentation of the payments made.
Step 3: Select the programs that your business will most likely qualify for.
Step 4: Make contact with these lenders that fund with previous defaults. Try to verify how likely your business is to meeting the funding program conditions and requirements.
Step 5: Submit an application for funding. Provide all documentation you have that improves your chance for an approval. Provide documentation that proves the time since the default and if any payments were made.
Step 6: If approved, review terms and conditions. Rates and terms will not be as favorable for some time on your advances after defaulting.
