How is my credit limit calculated?

Your credit limit is determined by the total value of your eligible unpaid invoices, as well as the level of funding required. Rapid Cash’s credit team will be in touch to discuss the appropriate credit limit during the assessment stage.

Will applying affect my credit score?

To set up a Rapid Cash account, we will need to perform a credit check. For the business and any relevant directors / partners / shareholders, the credit file will show that NatWest Rapid Cash conducted a director search for commercial lending (N.B. not personal lending). Therefore your personal credit score should remain completely unaffected. Commercial searches (of which this is one) are ignored when calculating a personal credit score, according to industry best practice.
