Applying for business finance? Here's what you need

When applying for business loans and finance, the more information you can supply the better. We explain exactly what you'll need.

Business loan documents – what's required Starting a small business or looking to expand?

Applying for finance or a business loan can be a complicated process, as business lenders require specific information.

Get your documentation right the first time with these four key items, so your lender can assess the right loan for you.



1. A business plan

As part of their business loan criteria, lenders need to see a business plan that outlines everything from your products and/or services to information about your competitors.

Your business plan should answer the following questions:

1. What do you supply?

2. What’s your potential?

3. Where do you sit in the market?

4. How well do you understand the market?

2. Cash flow projections

The loan application process will also assess your cash flow projection.

This looks at the current cash flow situation of your business and the kind of cash you need to operate.

You'll need to have this information to hand:

1. How much cash is coming in?

2. How much cash do you need to run the business (i.e. pay wages, etc.)?

3. Details of your security

Lenders will also need to secure your business loan, usually with property or another type of asset.

You'll need:

1. Documents that show ownership of assets, such as residential premises.

2. Any other assets, including stocks and shares.



4. Statement of position

1. What do you own?

2. What do you still owe?

3. What’s the net difference?
