Small Business Finance

If you’re starting or expanding your business you may need to obtain finance.

How Does Small Business Finance Work?

There are many things to consider before starting out on your small business journey, and your mind will be brimming with ideas to get your business up and running. The last thing you want to be stressing over is money. That’s where a business loan may come in handy.

Need to purchase an asset for your business, or put more money towards your working capital? A business loan may be the answer and they function like other loans. If approved, your lender will provide finances to assist your business, and you will be charged either a fixed or variable interest rate over the long term.

Types of Finance

Chattel Mortgage

Equipment purchased under this loan acts as collateral for the life of the loan. A chattel mortgage is used as cash to purchase equipment for your business.

Unsecured Finance

Don’t want to use an asset as collateral? Go for an unsecured finance, however the lender will typically need to assess your business’ cash flow, trading history and ability to pay the loan back, so this may not be the best loan when you are just starting out. It will require a steady cash flow.

Car Finance

Purchasing a car may seem like a great idea. But there are many things to consider before doing so, like ensuring you have enough income to cover your monthly living expenses.

Equipment Finance

Also referred to as “asset finance”, equipment loans are commonly used by businesses to purchase things like machinery, vehicles, and other technology. There are various loan arrangements available for this kind of financing, including hire-purchase agreement, and a lease agreement.
