How Do I Know If My SME Needs A Loan?

Posted: 9th October 2020

There are many reasons why a business will look at taking out a business loan. Here are the most common...

Do You Need To Increase Working Capital for Growth?

Yes! Then you need a business loan. 

A business loan helps you increase productivity, giving you a boost to your working capital.

You can increase production, output, purchasing additional stock, upgrade equipment and machinery, take on new staff and move to larger premises for example.

All of these things need cashflow and working capital.

Do You Need To Improve Your SME Credit Score?

Yes! Then you need a business loan.

A business loan gives your business a credit score; a score that’s more important than many businesses appreciate.

This can be advantageous when negotiating new terms with suppliers for instance. Building a strong credit score helps you to secure better terms and rates for additional lending needs in the future.

Do You Need Help With Long Term Financial Security?

Yes! Then you need a business loan.

Forget thinking that business loans are for failing companies. Without cashflow a business will fail – this is a fact!

50% of businesses fail within 5 years due to lack of cashflow.

Cashflow dries up, they are unable to progress, business halts and ultimately ceases to trade. Cashflow loans allow smart business owners to seize the day, seizing growth opportunities, securing future growth.

Do You Need To Reduce Personal Risk?

Yes! Then you need a business loan.

Now, more than ever, businesses are advised against using personal finances to fund their business. By taking out a business loan, like an unsecured loan, you can try to avoid any personal assets - like a house or car - being seized should the worst happen.
