Small Business Loan: Start up vs. Working Capital

Small Business Loan

If you are looking to get a small business loan, you will have to declare the purpose and scope of the loan when you apply. There are two basic categories: startup and working capital. The approval process is very different for each, as is where you will likely find funding. We’ll discuss both of those, in today’s article.

Getting a small business loan for start up expenses can be very difficult. Many entrepreneurs decide either to take on partners or to look for venture capital and angel investors to help them with their start up costs. Remember, these loans only extend into the creation of, but not the operation of, your company.

You can lump together all major purchases under one agreement in most circumstances. If you do decide to borrow, you should try to get enough to pay for all necessary equipment purchases, supplies, inventory, etc.

A working capital small business loan is quite a bit different. This is money you borrow to pay for your day-to-day operations while you are attempting to increase your working capital. If you have a successful company and you are trying to expand, this would be a good way to go about it.

Major banks are more involved at this point because you have an established business with a proven track record. This represents far less risk to banks, as long as that track record is a good one. You should contact a financial professional for further advice on how you should handle your financing needs.
