How To Get A Business Loan

In finding a suitable loan for your business it is important to understand the different types of business loan available and to ensure you are getting the right finance suited to your requirements. Business loans can be categorized under the following:

Government Loans

Your business may be entitled to a Government business loan or grant depending on the nature of your business and location. The Government start up scheme funds and mentors entrepreneurs where a low cost unsecured loan is made available over a 5 year term for qualifying businesses. Interest is paid on the loan and capital repayment holidays are available.

Unsecured Business Loans

Some lenders will consider providing a business if it has a strong trading record an unsecured loan although most lenders will want some form of security for larger loans. A number of new lenders using smart technology to analyze your monthly accounts and business model can offer loans for qualifying businesses on a unsecured basis. For start up businesses unsecured loans are usually capped.

Secured Loans

A business secured loan is where generally the assets of the business are used as security for a loan. 

Peer to Peer Business Loans
