Top 6 Things to Include in a Business Loan Application

When applying for a quick business loan, you have to ensure that it gets approved by the first lender whom you approach. Rejection is not an option as it can lower your credit score. Furthermore, with one rejection, your chances of getting the loan approved from another financial institution will also reduce.

Personal Loan

A financial institution can decline your application after evaluating your credit history. Multiple rejections will show-up in the credit report and eventually, your credit score will fall. Hence, you need to ensure that your business loan is complete and ready in every way possible.

Here are the top 6 things that you should include in your business loan application:

  • Application overview  

You must include a letter at the beginning of your application that provides an overview of the application. The letter must also include a reason stating why you are an ideal candidate for getting the loan.

  • A business plan

You have to provide a business plan with your application. The plan should provide a thorough overview of your business and your future prospects. It should include all your company statements like profit and loss statement, balance sheet, cash flow statement, etc.

You must also include market study and the feasibility of your business in current and future market conditions. Lastly, you must provide the management and marketing strategies of your company.

Better the business pitch is, higher are the chances of loan approval.     

  • All the required documents

You have to provide all necessary documents for satisfying the business loan eligibility criterions. Financial institutions usually need you to submit the following:

  • KYC documents

KYC documents are proofs of identity, certifying that you are between 25 & 55 years of age. You can provide your Aadhaar, Passport, Driving License, Voter ID, etc.

  • Address proof

You have to furnish documents that verify the proof of your address. You can produce any KYC document that contains your permanent address, any latest utility bill (electricity, telephone, water, gas, etc.) or house rent agreement, etc.

  • Proof of business

A lender requires documents that vouch for the existence of your business. These documents also guarantee that your company has a vintage of at least 3 years.

You can furnish any certificate or registration that verifies the above. Some of those documents include trade license, Registrar of Companies certificate, GST registration, partnership deed, Articles of Association, Memorandum of Association, SEBI registration, etc.

  • Income tax reports

You have to file income tax for at least the previous year and provide the same in your quick business loan application.

  • Business turnovers

Lenders need business owners to produce turnovers for at least the previous year audited by a Chartered Accountant.

  • Bank account statement

Your loan application must include your bank account statement of the previous month.

  • Your business and personal credit report

Although the lender will inquire about your credit report, providing the same beforehand will be more beneficial.

Make sure that both the reports don’t have any inaccuracies that may hamper your loan application. Maintaining a healthy credit score and credit report can also help you negotiate your business loan interest rate.

  • The amount of loan you require

The loan amount is one of the obvious things that you have to include in your application.
