How do I apply for a Need Cash Today loan?
We have developed a state of the art system that means you can do everything to apply online. First you can use our online calculator to work out how much you want, how much it will cost in total and when you can pay it back, then it will take you about five minutes to fill in our online application form. Using our digital signature technology you can even sign the application without having to print or fax any documents. After you have applied we will request to see your last 6-8 weeks statements if this is your first loan, for most of you this again will be an online process that takes less than two minutes. Then all you have to do is inform your employer or payroll officer and we will do the rest. With Need Cash Today the application process is quick and clear.
Why would I need a Need Cash Today loan?
Need Cash Today loans are for people who are experiencing temporary cash flow problems between paydays. Life is full of unscheduled surprises and Need Cash Today loans are designed to help people pay for unexpected bills or cheap plane tickets when they need to rather than when they can.
Why do you contact my payroll?
Contacting your payroll officer or employer speeds up the process. We need to confirm and verify your details with them and if you have contacted them this will make the process quicker. We will not tell them how much you are borrowing or any other details.

Any delays in contacting your payroll officer or employer will slow down the loan process. We need to confirm these details and will never approve a loan application without contacting your payroll officer or employer.

We take fraud very seriously and these checks ensure that no one else is using your details to fraudulently obtain a loan.
How much can I borrow?
There are several factors that control how much you can borrow from us, we take our responsibility as an honest and fair lender seriously and want to ensure that you can easily pay your loan back on time. As a policy we only let you borrow an amount where repayments will be less than 30% of your net pay per period. If you are a new customer we limit your first loan to ${{Config.MaximumLoanAmountNewCustom}} and after that you could take up to a maximum of ${{Config.MaximumLoanAmountExistingCustom}}. Use our online calculator to work out how much you can borrow and how much it will cost all up. Need Cash Today makes it clear and fair.
How much will it cost?
With Need Cash Today there are no hidden costs, no small print and no nasty surprises. Using our online calculator you can work out how much you can borrow, the total cost of the loan and the repayment schedule. This means that before you apply you can see the total cost including our fees and the interest charged. For more information please look at our fees page.
What happens if I miss a payment?
If you do not think you will have enough money in your account for the direct debit then contact us on 0800 003 011 immediately to stop it. You need to contact us at least 24 hours before the due date. Any later and we will not be able to stop it and you will be charged for a failed payment.
What is Need Cash Today's criteria?

  1. You must be over 18.
