NatWest Rapid Cash + Xero

Rapid Cash connects to your Xero account as part of the application process and this connection is maintained whilst you have Rapid Cash. This minimises the paperwork and any requirement to share information regularly. We only utilise the data that is required to support our product.

How Rapid Cash works:

  1. Connect Xero to the Rapid Cash platform
  2. Receive your indicative borrowing limit within seconds, up to 85% of the value of your unpaid invoices.
  3. Our team will contact you to cover any initial questions, and to set up your new Rapid Cash account; We target approving new applications within 24hrs
  4. Once set up, you can draw down funds as you require. Customers pay invoices in to your new Rapid Cash account — this repays what you've borrowed
  5. Your line of credit is reinstated - so you are free to borrow again.
