The Fast £500 offers our members the ability to borrow up to £500 without high interest charges or hidden fees. This service is exclusively for members who are working for one of Scotwest’s Select Employer Partners and make deposits by payroll deduction.

As a responsible lender we want to help you get out of the financial hiccup you may find yourself facing, without the cost, panic and stress that may come from using a payday lender.

We offer a guaranteed same day decision (apply by 4.30pm Monday – Thursday & 3.30pm on Friday) and give you time to pay back the loan (typically minimum 3 months) helping you get your finances under control.

For members who are currently borrowing from Scotwest, you can apply to top up your existing loan by calling the Member Enquiry Line on 0141 227 2390 or submitting a further loan application online.

For employees who have not yet joined Scotwest, the Fast £500 Loan is available as soon as your membership application has been approved, with your loan being paid out once Payroll Deduction has been established.
