How should I prepare my request for a loan?
First of all, relax. Figure out how much you need to borrow for specific purposes, then read on to see how we make our assessments and lending decisions, and how you can help us make the process painless.
What will you consider when evaluating my request for a business loan?
- Business standing
We’ll take a look at your business history, current business standing and what kind of loan you’re seeking. For SBA and some other loans, we might ask you to provide a business plan noting your projected financial statements, including profit and loss, cash flow and balance sheet.
Your available collateral might affect the loan value we are able to provide. Giving us information on the value of potential collateral items will be helpful.
- Financial standing
We may review several sources of information — for example: your credit score, bank statements, tax returns, etc.— in order to determine how creditworthy your business is.
- Legal standing
We might ask about contracts you have with third parties, any leases or other agreements that are in place, and your business registrations or licenses.
How do I gauge my business financing needs?
Your business needs will usually fall into two broad categories:
- Expansion Capital
This includes funds used to finance business growth. We consider expansion capital a permanent investment in your business, so your loan repayment will be longer than one year.
- Working Capital
Short-term business cash needs fall under this category. Think seasonally — working capital can be repayable in less than one year depending on the seasonal sales and cash flow patterns of your company. We might require permanent working capital, especially if you plan to commit funds to a permanent buildup in accounts receivable and inventory in support of sales growth, the introduction of new product lines, or expansion into other territories.
