Bad Credit Business Loans

For a small to medium enterprise (SME), obtaining a loan through traditional lenders, such as banks, can be a tedious and often unfruitful task simply because your company does not have the background or large transactions to prove an interest to banks. However, if your business has bad credit, receiving a loan through traditional lenders jumps from “often unfruitful” to “nearly impossible.” Instead, your business must turn to untraditional lenders who can help you obtain funding. A lender will gauge your business’ credit through credit card sales, partners and their credit, available inventory, and the owner of the company’s individual FICO score. Lenders will also possibly need projections in business plans, calculations of cash flow, and your credit history. Here are some tips to help you in the lending process during a period of bad credit for your business:

Formulate a solid, strategic business plan based on facts.
As a growing enterprise it is essential to have a step-by-step strategy that allows your business to flourish and mature, accounting for all of the different variables. It is important to not underestimate the potential of your business, but not ignore the facts about the obstacles you may face. A lender will feel more confident about your credibility if they can see you understand the challenges your business may cross, and the reasonable solutions you use to handle them.

Show transactions and calculations of cash flows in recent periods.
Even if your business has bad credit, if you are generating any sort of revenue, despite the amount, it is essential to show your lender that your business is still viable. Finding calculations of your business’ cash flows in recent periods will show your lender where previous funds have been spent, received, withdrawn, and invested, and allow your lender to fully understand the reason for your bad credit and the gravity of your situation.

Know the amount of the loan your business needs and your plan to repay it.
Though this may seem an obvious point when borrowing money, it is one a business overlooks. It is vital to be prepared when approaching a lender, as it ensures you receive the proper amount of funds. Your business is unique and requires your special attention to discover the perfect balance of funding you may need. Make sure it is enough cash to support and manage your business, but not so much cash that your business can’t support the repayments.

Choose your lender.
Who you decide to trust during the lending process is equally as important as receiving the funds, especially when using a non-traditional lender. Your growing business needs a helpful lending company who strives for your success while keeping your information secure and your borrowing process convenient.

Repair your credit.
You can start repairing your credit by paying your expenses on time, preparing, if possible, any expenses (such as insurance), and learning to be more careful with spending your liquid resources, in general. It is essential to not only overcome the problem of bad credit by obtaining a loan but fix the root of the problem by being financially responsible.
