The Good

  • Flexible Term Loans
  • Line of Credit Available
  • Multiple SBA Options

Flexible Term Loans

Chase's term loans up to $5 million can provide ways for a business to consolidate debt, and acquire equipment or capital goods. There are options for fixed or adjustable rate loans with term lengths anywhere from 12 up to 84 months. Payments are regularly deducted from your Chase business checking account.

Line of Credit Available

There are two options for lines of credit for your business through Chase. Which line of credit will depend on the size of your business. A business line of credit is optimal for a $10,000 to $50,000. This option can be used as overdraft protection if linked to the business' Chase banking account. There is a low annual fee depending on the amount of the line of credit. The second option is a Chase commercial line of credit. This would be best for a business seeking a line of credit over $50,000. There is no annual fee with this line of credit choice. Interest-only payments, and initial terms are 12 to 24 months.

Multiple SBA Options

Small business administration (SBA) loans are also available through Chase. There are several loan solutions: SBA 7(a) program, SBA express term loan, SBA 504 loan program, SBA express, and SBA CAPline. Each option differs in the loan amount, structure, and what the funds are needed for.

The Bad

  • Low Approval Rate
  • Long Wait Periods
  • No Discounts Available

Low Approval Rate

Forbes.com states in an article, "The 5 Big Banks That Reject the Most Small-Sized Business Loans," that JPMorgan Chase is listed at number two with a 11.6 percent rejection rate. The article urges small business owners to build relationships with their local community banks, and use federal funded money from such institutions to help grow local businesses.

Long Wait Periods

While top business lenders are approving loans in as little as one day, Chase Bank can take upwards of a month. It can take as little as three weeks, but that'll depend on your paperwork being in order and the length of time of your business. The longer you have been in business the more likely you will be approved.

No Discounts Available

There are no prepayment penalties on a business loan, but Chase does not offer a pre-payment discount to reward a company that pays back their loan early. Some leading business loan companies will do just that.

Chase Bank is just a group of salespeople and once they got what they needed, it was difficult to impossible to get support for other issues, questions, or problems. They treated us as if we were the problem when we had issues and were unwavering in attempting to help us with any issue. In fact they would often not help us then try to sell us something like a Credit card or another account refinance etc.

Getting a loan with Chase is a bite more harder than other lenders. But the process was very easy because I had a business account and credit card with them before requesting the loan. So all my information was readily available to them, which in turn saved Me time and effort. Once approved the money was in my business account within the week and it helped me purchase a new box truck for my business

The best part about Chase Business is the customer service and convenience. You can find a branch all most anywhere and the phone service is excellent. The only thing I didn't like was a lot of paperwork and the application/approval time took longer than expected. Other than that Chase is worth the wait!

I have been a member of chase for years. Before the pandemic needed help with a loan and had no issues with the rep. Was able to go into my local Branch and talk to someone in person. During the Pandemic my payments were deferred for a reasonable time til I can begin payment process again.

Chase is a full-service loan provider that was the top choice from among all lenders I researched. Their response was fast and their process seamless, and all of it online without the hassle of talking to a representative that you feel might 'upsell' you to other banking products. It was a no hassle and anxiety-free process start to finish. Their online dashboard to manage the account is also simple and insightful. Highly recommended.

I borrowed money to finance a car for my business!! Their interest rates were the lowest available and their website makes it convenient to make payments and maintain documentation for taxes.

I liked the interest rate, just did not care for the amount of paperwork involved. Pretty straight forward application process. Interest rate was very competitive. Worked hard for the money, but worth it in the end. Administrative/loan fees were in line with all the others.

When I needed a loan to grow my small business I chose Chase because I'd dealt with them before. The Ecole process was easy and rates very competitive. Very easy to work with.

After talking to Chase bank about getting a small business loan to fund the production run of an electronic device I created, first thing I was told was that a Chase business checking account is required. You MUST apply inside a branch, and the application process is quite long.

Their documentation did not even transfer from the Loan. I attempted to update (info came from ANOTHER UNRELATED 15 years ago transaction!) , they said I needed to wait another 30 days. Also, they requested flood insurance that was not requested by previous lender, All neighbors are not required either, When you call Customer Service , they are not in USA and difficult to understand.
