Business Loan Advice for Belvedere Businesses
Prior to meeting with banks to get a bank loan, you will need to have a specific plan.
You need to be able to clearly introduce your business to the banker, explain how much you want to borrow, describe what the money will finance, and show your ability to pay the money back to the bank.
A well-defined business plan is an important prerequisite. If the loan is to for a going concern, you should also have financial statements covering the last three years. In addition, you should itemize what collateral you have available to secure the loan. Collateral is relevant because banks always
want to be prepared for a worst-case scenario in which cash flow from the business does not meet your projections.
If the business has few assets, you will likely be asked to pledge your personal assets, such as the equity in your home. The banks will check on your personal credit history in any case, so hopefully you have good credit history
-- you may want to get a copy of your credit history prior to meeting with the banker.
