3 Different Business Financing Methods

Saturday, February 8, 2020

No matter how brilliant your business idea is, the plan will be the most important thing. And in that plan, the single most vital detail is the financing. No business can be born into the world, without the money to back it up. Luckily, nations from around the world all want to be the best place for small businesses to flourish. There are so many ways to finance your business, that money is no longer the problem. It's how you get the money itself which is the challenge. These are different ways you could finance your business, according to your wishes of timescale, amount, payment programs and flexibility.

The almighty institution

For any type of need for money, there is one institution that stands above the rest. The bank is the life and soul of many small businesses. Bank business loans are often long-term, which gives you around 2-5 years to pay them back in full, with interest. Depending on what kind of bank you go to, your business loan will come with little to no strings attached. You will need to report every month, making loan payments as well as financial health reports. Your taxes will need to be filed in a timely fashion so the bank knows the financial situation and whether or not you could be in line for a restructuring of the payment plan. Bank business loans can range from $10,000 to $200,000, making them a superb option for large loan requests.

Specific streams financing

For many businesses, there are specific funding streams. In other words, there are financial companies set up purely to fund your type of business. If you’re running a funeral home, this type of funeral home financing will cover the purchasing of the home, buying equipment, hiring employees and creating additional services. You can also use the money to sell a funeral home, helping to pay for the costs of a solicitor, advertisements and contract creation. If you’re setting up a restaurant, there are specific loans for this type of business. Companies that design loans with specific industries in mind, know the challenges that are present within them. Therefore you are much more likely to get a flexible and understanding payment plan, than most other avenues. 

Going the private way

Venture capital financing is something that small businesses are starting to utilize more and more. The only concern is, you will have to give up equity stakes of your business to the investors as an insurance policy. The loan will be guaranteed based on the number of returns you’re offering, but to keep parties in line with each other, the business owner must offer collateral. The upside is, you receive large loans which can be increased as times go by, based on performance. You’ll also be given flexibility if you have shown consistency, which is why so many small businesses looking to expand, choose the venture capital route.

Specific financing streams are the best funding method if you’re starting a niche business. Generally speaking, bank loans will always be the largest as it's a financial institution embedded in government policy to create more businesses.
