Commercial Loans - Take All Aspects in Consideration

By: amenda dorothy

As the saying goes, taking a loan is easier than surviving with it. A shrewd businessman is one who borrow but with an eye to repay it as soon as possible. Sometimes, business requirements arise because you get a new business order hat is hard to manage within your own business funds. You obviously cannot afford to lose big business opportunity only because the funds are not there.

These and other similar situations force you to take help of external sources of financing. These sources may be temporary or permanent, depending on the nature of funding. Large body corporate often have huge financial needs, and therefore, they resort to public financing by inviting deposits or going for a 'rights issue' meant for the existing shareholders. On the other hand, a new business concern or sole proprietorship undertaking would obviously not be able to take benefit of that sort - neither are these meant for them.

Before applying for commercial loans, first of all decide the type of debt financing that your business firm will be comfortably able to get. If you do not own any property in the name of firm, secured commercial business loans are out of question. You will have to rely on loans that do not require any security. These loans will offer you a limited amount - upto ?25,000. The interest rate is likely to be little more than what you can get by pledging some property. The amount of loan that you can qualify for can be increased by involving some property in the loan transaction.

You should also assess and make provisions for the repayment of loan. There are a lot of costs involved like arrangement fees, interest rates, penalties for late payments, etc. You should also take these aspects into consideration at the time of making repayment provision. Your goodwill is at stake and you cannot afford to miss repayments on any loan taken from the market. It is better to take short loan than defaulting in the repayment of loan. There are many credit reference agencies that will make an adverse entry in your credit file should you make any default in repayment of commercial loans.

Commercial business loans are also available in the sub-prime market. This means that businesses having low credit rating can also take benefit of business funding by paying a little higher rate of interest. The loans are available online as well as with the traditional lenders. It is your choice how you want to approach a lender, either online or through personal meeting.
