Bank Business Loans, things to consider...

Whether you need to finance a business start up, an asset purchase, or to make refurbishments to your premises, a business loan are often your first port of call.

Business loans will usually be individually priced and have negotiable terms and conditions. The bank will want to take a detailed look at your past accounts, your current balance sheet as well as your future forecasts and plans. They will then determine the credit risk that your business presents, and price the interest rate accordingly.

Some banks will offer a fixed rate option, so your business can budget for the loan repayments. They can also be very flexible on the loan term – business loans can be offered for far longer terms than personal loans. But remember that while a longer term means lower payments – it also means more interest to pay over the term of the loan.

For some business loans a lender may ask you to put up collateral as security should you not be able to make the repayments on your loan. If your business is new, or doesn’t have assets to put up as security, you may be asked to put up your personal property as security.

ANY PROPERTY GIVEN AS SECURITY, WHICH MAY INCLUDE YOUR HOME, MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE OR OTHER DEBTS SECURED ON IT. A CREDIT ASSESSMENT WILL BE REQUIRED. YOU SHOULD NOT APPLY FOR AN AMOUNT THAT YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO REPAY NOW AND IN THE FUTURE.
