Business Loans

Starting and running a business is expensive. Even from the outset, a significant amount of cash or capital is required to pay for expenses including but not limited to stock, premises, business and IT equipment, advertising and marketing expenses, and wages for staff (including the owner).

Unless you are beginning from a strong financial foundation, you’ll need to borrow the funds to cover your expenses until your business begins to turn a profit. This is where business loans can be invaluable.

What is a Business Loan?

A business loan is a set amount of money borrowed for the purpose of paying for business expenses when the said business is unable to cover those costs itself at a particular time. There are different types of business loans, including:

  • Business Overdraft Loan – a line of credit attached to a savings, debit or cheque account. The lender extends credit up to a maximum overdraft limit.
  • Residentially-Secured Loan – secured by the business owner’s home
  • Commercially-Secured Loan – secured by property owned by the business

Business owners may also choose to take out Equipment Loans (chattel mortgages) specifically for business vehicles or equipment. There is an array of other specific loan products available for financing related to the operation of a business.

Business loan lenders charge specific fees as well as interest rates that incorporate a risk margin – this is based on the lender’s determination of the business’s prospects for profitability and success within a set time frame.

Here at Universal Finance, we understand that different business owners have different needs, and these must be considered when seeking and financing credit or a loan for their business.

Unless you have collateral to use for a secured loan, you’ll need a loan in the form of a business overdraft with a line of credit.
