You can share your financial situation, and your business dream - Winquote can help you determine where the options lie.
Do you have the capacity for a $600,000 cafe or are you better suited to a smaller $100,000 owner-operator?
If you're a company looking at an acquisition, do you have the borrowing capacity to obtain a $1,000,000 loan? What is needed to make the application more favourable, so that when you do find that opportunity to acquire a competitor - you are ready to run for it.
When applying for a business loan there is a higher level of risk involved. The lender needs to know you can operate the business, continue to grow it and that they have something to fall back on if things go wrong. How you present the application matters.
Whether you look to buy a $300,000 cafe or a $2,000,000 transportation business, the picture you paint to the lender matters.
Enquiring about a $2,000,000 transport business when you only have $100,000 in the bank, no home equity, and no experience in the transport industry - probably won't get you very far. Except to annoy the vendors for the time you have wasted.
Discussing your experience and financial situation with an expert can help you to understand where you are at, and how you can achieve your business goals. Perhaps buying a $200,000 courier business is a better move. Obtaining $100,000 loan for the vehicle and investing your savings is a more realistic possibility. Look to grow that business and alternative strategies that are achievable.
Whether you are a first-time buyer looking to enter the world of business ownership, you own a business and want to expand or you are ready to merge with another company - you need to know your options.
Understanding how to get money to make money is important - that's pretty much what business is anyways.
You don't even own the business yet! You're not after a typical business loan.
You want a loan to acquire or merge a business. It takes a skillset and knowledge of business sales to get these loans over the line. Applying online can hurt your credit rating if you don't know what you are doing.
Yes and no. If you have $50,000 in the bank, $100,000 equity in your home but have been unemployed the last 2 years and are looking to buy a $1 million business. It doesn't matter what the business is, you're probably not going to get the loan you want.
Where it does matter is when there two paths start to align....
You have $350,000 available and you're looking at a $400,000 + SAV (say $100,000) business. The two paths are starting to align. You are short $150,000 but you have more than 50% deposit available. There is also $100,000 in stock in the sale price. Here is where your options start to play their cards. In this scenario, you can look at loans for stock, line of credit, personal loans, business loans, vendor finance, buyout periods and more.
When you've found the business - you know it's near your borrowing capacity - now it's the vendor's turn to step up to the mark.
Are their financial statements organised and up to date? Are the documents ready for a financial institution to review? If there are gaps in their history, poor equipment records, outstanding payments, tax debts, wage issues, and negative balances month-on-month. Then the lender may deem the business is not stable and you may struggle to get finance (or the lender will want collateral from your assets). So yes, it does matter.
