About Our Loans

At Scotcash we provide affordability loans starting from just £50 - a cost-effective credit alternative where a bank or building society cannot help. Loans are based on your current circumstances, not your past credit history.

We offer affordable, fixed regular repayments to suit your financial situation and you have the option of paying weekly, fortnightly, four-weekly or monthly with flexible repayment dates. All Scotcash loans are repaid through your bank account by Direct Debit, so there are no home visits or cash payments required. If you don't have a bank account we can help you open one.

What our customers say

"I'm extremely grateful for your help when we were at our lowest and everything was going downhill"

This customer got a £300 loan to decorate their new home. Her partner is now working and things are looking up. She has not gone on to take another loan just now as she would prefer to wait until she needed it.

 

"Thank you, your company has helped me through a lot of financial pressure and with lower APR I don't feel ripped off"

This customer is on her 4th loan, single with 3 kids. She usually uses her loans for Christmas and kids birthdays.
