Today we’ll be discussing a guide to small business loans. These loans are specifically designed for companies that are under a certain size and take into consideration that they may not have as much business history behind them as larger scale corporations would. We will be discussing the criteria in greater detail in today’s article.
First we should discuss whether or not your company qualifies as a small company or not you small business loans usually are reserved for companies with revenue under $100,000 per year or fewer than 500 employees. There is no one set guideline however and you should ask your lender if your company qualifies for their small business loan program or not.
So if you do qualify how do you go about finding yourself a loan? The best place to start in my opinion is to seek out the local chapter of the small business administration in your area. This is a federally run organization which is designed to help small companies it with the mission of improving the US economy. They have consultants available on hand with years of industry experience that can help walk you through the entire process of getting your company funded through banks and other traditional and nontraditional lending institutions alike.
One thing he will need to prepare in order to get your loan is your business plan. This is a formal document which will outline all of the expenses as well as the future revenues of your company. It must include as much detail as possible to demonstrate that you have a clear understanding of what your likely expenses will be and how you intend to deal with them Erie it also you should understand that you will use this document for your personal gain as well to decrease your expenses or to point out to yourself where you have perhaps missed certain details in your preparations.
So once you have a business plan and you are speaking with the small business administration office in your area you should be able to take this information to approve lenders in order to get these specialty loans. Remember that these are designed for company such as your own and as such have the same competitive rates as those offered to larger companies. This makes them a very powerful tool for you to use as you start your company as you will not have a lot of money to pay high interest rates on your starting capital loan.
