Business Loan Prequalification questions to ask yourself

  1. How much do you want to borrow?

    The first question you need to ask yourself is how much you plan on borrowing. Business finance amounts vary greatly, and lenders will want to see exactly what you plan on using the money for. Be sure to include a plan on how you will use the loan in your business loan application.

  2. How long have you been in business?

    Lenders are naturally more hesitant to lend to new businesses that haven’t yet had the time to establish themselves. As part of your application, you’ll need to submit business income tax returns along with projected cash flow for the next several years. If you’re a new business, check out these 8 different options for start-up business loans.

  3. When do you need the money?

    Depending on the type of business loan you need, from a private business loan to a government loan, funding can take anywhere from a few hours to over a month. Make sure to research and plan accordingly so your business doesn’t wind up in a bind.

  4. Do you have the required documents necessary?

    Don’t get denied simply because you didn’t submit the proper paperwork. In general, lenders are going to request your personal background information, credit history (both personal and business), bank statements, income tax returns, your business plan, and your resume. You can see more required small business loan documents here. To increase your chances for loan approval, be willing to submit any additional paperwork your lender may request in a timely manner.
