Utah Merchant Cash Advance Lawyers Provide Options for Struggling Business Owners

Running a small business can be tough, especially when cash flow gets tight. If you’ve taken out a merchant cash advance (MCA) to keep things afloat, you may now be struggling under the weight of high payments and fees. Don’t panic – there are options, and a Utah merchant cash advance lawyer can help.

What is a Merchant Cash Advance?

A merchant cash advance isn’t a regular business loan. Instead, an MCA provider gives you an upfront lump sum in exchange for a percentage of your future credit card and debit card sales over a set period of time (usually less than 18 months).The catch is that MCAs typically charge very high effective interest rates – we’ve seen rates as high as 400% APR! And if your revenue drops for any reason, your daily or weekly payments don’t adjust down automatically. You’re on the hook to pay back the full advance plus fees no matter what.This structure can put massive strain on small businesses. If you fall behind on payments, the consequences can be dire:

- -
  • Harassing calls from collectors
  • Lawsuits and judgments
  • Garnished bank accounts
  • UCC liens placed on your assets

Yikes! Who wants to deal with all that? If you’re struggling with MCA debt, don’t go it alone. A Utah MCA lawyer can help.

New Utah MCA Laws Offer Some Protections

Historically there have been few regulations on merchant cash advances in Utah. But in 2023, the state enacted the Commercial Financing Registration and Disclosure Act (CFRDA).This law requires MCA providers operating in Utah to register with the Department of Financial Institutions. It also mandates key disclosures about financing terms and costs.While the CFRDA is a start, MCAs largely operate outside other Utah lending laws. Interest rate caps and other consumer protections don’t apply. Business owners are still very vulnerable.That’s why working with an experienced Utah MCA lawyer is so important if you run into trouble with your advance. We know all the ins and outs of these complex contracts and how to find ways to relieve the burden.
