TIPS

Get the best business line of credit possible

By May 14, 2019 No Comments

There is a right way and a wrong way to apply for a business line of credit.  Doing it the wrong way can get you denied, tied up with the wrong lending company, or paying an outrageous amount of interest.

Here are a few tips for business owners in Alabama, AL, Arkansas, AR, Delaware, DE, Florida, FL, Georgia, GA, Kentucky, KY, Louisiana, LA, Maryland, MD, Maine, ME, Michigan, MI, Mississippi, MS, North Carolina, NC, New York, NY, Ohio, OH, Pennsylvania, PA, South Carolina, SC, Tennessee, TN, Texas, TX, Vermont, VT, Virginia, VA, and West Virginia, WV.

PUT YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD

When you apply for a business line of credit an underwriting committee will review your application.  Just like when you hire employees, the ones who do not put their best foot forward usually do not get hired.  It works the same way with a business line of credit application.

Make it easy for the review committee to say yes, not no.   What could trigger a no:

  • You have a business with multiple owners and you fill out the application with just one owner listed
  • Not having a clear idea about why you need the funds.
  • Applying for a business line of credit with another lending company only months before coming to All Merchant Funding for more financing.
  • Not being truthful with the facts.

All of the above items are a pathway to “no” for the review committee.  Or at the least, they could trigger a request from the lending company for more documentation, slowing down the process by days.

Most small businesses in Alabama, AL, Arkansas, AR, Delaware, DE, Florida, FL, Georgia, GA, Kentucky, KY, Louisiana, LA, Maryland, MD, Maine, ME, Michigan, MI, Mississippi, MS, North Carolina, NC, New York, NY, Ohio, OH, Pennsylvania, PA, South Carolina, SC, Tennessee, TN, Texas, TX, Vermont, VT, Virginia, VA, and West Virginia, WV will need a line of credit at some point.  All Merchant Funding encourages you to put together your long-range plan now and secure your business line of credit while times are good.  Doing it when you are under stress could lead to bad decisions that hurt your chances of getting important financing.
