Preparing for the Experience
As simple and easy as our small business financing experience is, it is helpful to prepare yourself for the loan process. This is an efficient process that begins by determining your precise need for finding. By taking this step, you can ensure that you apply for financing that meets all of your needs. You also should review your credit scores and begin preparing a loan submission package for us to review.
Why Credit Scores Matter
Small business lenders often review credit scores for the business and for the owner. Your credit report and scores show a lender how well you have managed your money up to this point. Lower credit scores indicate a greater risk to the lender, and higher credit scores indicate a reduced risk. This is one reason why loan amounts may be lower and interest rates may be higher if you have bad credit scores.
Increasing Your Credit Scores
Because credit ratings impact the financing terms that may be available to you, spending time improving your credit rating may be beneficial if time allows. Some of the primary reasons why your credit rating may be lower than desired include erroneous information being reported, high debt balances and the age of your accounts. Review your business and personal credit reports to determine if you need to correct incorrect information, and contact creditors and credit bureaus as necessary. Reducing debt balances over the next few months may also help you to raise credit scores. In addition, keep in mind that older accounts are more favorable than newer accounts. If you intend to close an account, choosing a newer account may be a smart option in some cases.
The Need for a Financial Plan
Small business lenders usually want to know what your plans for the borrowed money are. You can prepare a detailed written plan outlining how you intend to use the money. An alternative is to provide current and projected future financial statements to show how the borrowed money will help your business.
Prepare a Financing Package
In addition to filling out a small business loan application, you typically will need to submit numerous financial documents as part of the loan process. If you want to proceed through the loan process quickly, consider getting a head start on this aspect of the process. You can pull together tax returns and bank statements for the business and for you personally. You can also update your business income and expense statement so that it is as current and accurate as possible.
Review Your Loan Quote
Approved applicants will receive a written loan estimate from Delancey Street promptly. This document will indicate all terms of the loan. When you agree to the loan terms, we will initiate the funding stage of the loan process.
