How Does a Working Capital Loan Work?
All small businesses endure cash flow shortages from either slow-paying creditors or unexpected payments. Working capital loans for small businesses have the advantage of easing these cash-flow burdens. One of the common myths of applying for working capital loans is the time it takes to be approved. Our team of funding specialists can process your business funding application within 24 to 48 hours of receiving the required information. There are a few initial questions our team will ask when determining your business working capital needs. To prepare for your phone call with us, gather this information ahead of time:
1.Time in Business:
What is the date of the commencement of the business? This often differs from the incorporation date if there was an established or set up period. If your business has operated for less than 1 year compared to 2 or 3 years, the working capital funding amount will be different.
2.Bank and Credit Card Statements:
Do you have 6 to 12 months of business bank statements? If your business accepts credit cards, please have at least 3 to 6 months of credit card statements available so we can reconcile the credit card statements with the bank statement deposits.
3.Bank Account Balances:
Did you know lenders look to ensure balances remain positive each month? Where your business account statements have multiple negative months and multiple days of non-sufficient funds, this will discourage lenders from approving a working capital loan. It is very advantageous to have bank statements with positive balances over a 6 to 12 month period to ensure your funding application is approved.
Coupled with time in business and monthly bank averages, a FICO score will allow lenders to determine if a slightly longer program or a more conservative term is appropriate.
To get through the application quickly and efficiently, have the following information available:
3 months of bank statements
Basic voided check – be sure this check is for the main business operating an account, not a personal account, payroll or another such account
Photo ID — if there is more than one owner of the business, supply photos for all owners
Business lease (or mortgage statement if the business owns the facility) – a full lease is not required, just the basic term and signature page.
5.Additional Working Capital Funding Application Documents:
It is often required by underwriters of working capital loans to provide the following as well:
Basic site inspection — This is generally required for any loan amount $75,000 and over
Financials — For any loan $100,000 and over, basic year-to-date Profit & Loss, a Balance Sheet, and your most recent year tax return is required.
What Exactly Is a Working Capital Loan?
There are times when small business owners want to grow but cash flow is tight enough only to run the day to day activities. That’s where a working capital loan comes in and allows you to continue to pay your day to day operating expenses while being able to invest in growth with the necessary working capital.
