Obtain Funding For Your Business

How A Business Loan Can Help You

No matter the business type, a business loan is a type of loan used to finance the costs associated with enhancing and supporting your business endeavors. While all businesses come with many challenges, it’s important to know you’ll have the capital you need to overcome employee turnover and training, project delays and/or creation, office supplies and materials, seasonal costs, and other demands unique to your industry.

Qualifications for a Business Loan

  1. Credit score: A good personal and/or business credit score is usually a crucial factor when applying for a business loan.

  2. Annual revenue: Lenders typically want to see that your business has sufficient revenue to repay the loan.

  3. Time in business: Lenders prefer to work with established businesses that have a track record of success.

  4. Cash flow: A positive cash flow demonstrates your ability to repay the loan on time.

  5. Collateral: Lenders may require collateral, such as real estate or equipment, to secure the loan.

  6. Industry type: Some lenders may specialize in certain industries and may have specific requirements or qualifications for businesses in those industries.

  7. Business plan: A strong business plan can demonstrate to lenders that you have a solid strategy for success.

  8. Purpose of loan: The lender may want to know how the loan proceeds will be used, and may have specific requirements depending on the intended purpose.

  9. Management team: Lenders may evaluate the experience and qualifications of the business owners and management team.

  10. Legal structure: The legal structure of your business, such as a sole proprietorship, LLC, or corporation, can affect your ability to obtain a loan and the type of loan you are eligible for.

Best Working Capital Loan

SBA 7(a) Loan

SBA 7(a) Loans

The most attractive of all small business loans, SBA 7(a) loans, provide long repayment periods and low interest rates. Small banks, which are the primary lenders of these loans, are guaranteed up to 85% of the loan by the U.S. Small Business Administration in case of borrower default. This security allows for competitive rates for borrowers.

Best SBA Loan Alternative

Term Loan

Term Loan

Term loans are comparable to SBA 7(a) loans, in that they provide a lump sum of capital and a specific repayment period. However, lenders don't require as stringent a credit history for qualification. This may mean higher interest rates, but if you need a lump-sum "traditional" business loan quickly, a term loan may be an ideal option.

Best Loan for Supplemental Purchases

Business Line of Credit

Business Line of Credit

A business line of credit is a great tool, as it provides the ability to draw from a sum that has been pre-approved by a lender. This type of loan is like a combination of a traditional loan and a cash advance on a credit card. It is "revolving," meaning that once you pay it back, you can draw against it again.

Best Loan for Everyday Expenses

Business Credit Card

Business Credit Card

With a 0% intro APR business credit card, you can make purchases without having to pay interest for an introductory period. This is like taking out a loan without the extra cost of interest. Furthermore, if you pay off your balance in full and on time, you will be building your company's credit history which can lead to more options in the future.

Best Loan to Finance Equipement

Equipment Financing

Equipment Financing

If you're in the market for equipment, from heavy machinery to computers, then this type of loan allows you to purchase large items without having to put up collateral. After being approved for a loan, you'll receive a quote for the gear and a lender will finance a large portion of the cost.

Best Loan for Cash Flow

Invoice Financing

Invoice Financing

Many business owners face cash flow issues due to unpaid invoices. Invoice financing can be a great solution to this problem, as it allows you to receive a large portion of the invoice (usually 85%) upfront from a lender. This money can then be used to pay staff, purchase supplies, and keep your business running as usual.

FAQs

What information and documents do I need to apply for funding?

Our lending partners will need 3 months of bank statements, the government IDs of all applicants, 1 or 2 years of business tax documents, business P&L and balance sheets, business licenses and formation documents, and a business EIN.

What is APR?

APR stands for Annual Percentage Rate and is a measure of the cost of borrowing money. It is the interest rate expressed as a yearly rate, including fees and costs associated with the loan. It's a good way to gauge the overall cost of your loan and your planned repayment schedule.

How long does it take to get the money once my business is approved?

Once approved, transfer times vary depending on the lender, but it is possible to receive your capital in as little as 72 hours after approval. Lines of credit, on the other hand, may be used immediately upon receiving approval in some cases.

How do I pay back the funding amount?

Our lenders offer secure digital payment portals so that you can make your repayments on time and without penalty. You may be able to change due dates and other important information.

How To Best Prepare for a Business Loan

Determine the amount of money you will request—and do not request an excessive amount.

Although you may have the option of a small business loan, it is important to only request the amount of money that you need and can afford to pay back. This will demonstrate to your lender that you are financially responsible and increase your chances of approval.

Understand the limitations and costs of your loan.

Before committing to a loan, be sure to consider the speed, flexibility, and cost. Some loans are more or less flexible while others charge for speed. Understand the APR and other associated fees and costs so you can make an informed decision.

Avoid taking out multiple loans.

If you already have a loan, it is not advisable to take out another one. This is calledstacking loans and is generally not allowed, except in certain cases (e.g. having a business line of credit with a term loan). If you stack loans without the permission of your original lender, you could be in breach of your loan agreement and default on your first loan. Before taking on another loan, check with your lender to make sure it is allowed.
