I Need A Business Loan | Huntington Coast Capital, Inc.


Are you thinking about getting a business loan? Like individuals, businesses also need credit from time to time. The loan comes in handy if a company has cash flow challenges or you need to use the extra funds as a strategic tool to help the company grow.


Although the needs of each business may vary, there are common instances when all companies may need to secure financing. Keep reading to learn the signs that you need a business loan.


1. The Company Doesn’t Have Enough Funds to Cover Employee Salaries

Your employees are the backbone of the company and need their salaries and wages to meet their personal and family needs. Sometimes, the business may not have adequate funds to operate and still pay their employees. This usually doesn’t mean the company is failing or unprofitable, just suffering from cash flow constraints.


Maybe some emergencies have caused a cash flow problem, and the business still needs to stay afloat and cover all expenditures, including salaries. If there is not enough money to cover your day-to-day overhead, you can secure a business loan.


Lenders can provide business loans and lines of credit to meet the working capital needs of your business. Depending on the type of business loan being requested, the turn around time from initial application to funding can be in as little as a week to up to 90 days. Because of the urgency, lenders fund payroll loans more quickly than other business loans. Payroll loans are most typically secured against your company’s accounts receivable. Consider this loan as an option when looking to level out your cash cycles. Many companies experience peaks and valleys in their cash flow that causes stress and uncertainty. A working capital business loan such as this, alleviates the stress associated with cash flow fluctuations.


2. The Business Is Growing Rapidly

Each time a small or middle-sized company experiences rapid growth, more funds may be useful. Rapid growth is often good, but the endeavor can strain your finances before you get the profits. You may get a business loan if you are not ready for rapid growth or the company savings aren’t enough to facilitate the growth expenses. Purchase order financing meets the capital needs in growing companies and is favorite type of business loan. Purchase order financing covers the cost of your orders received from your customers. This type of business loan pays your suppliers covering up to 100% of your cost of goods.


When a company grows fast, you may need money for inventory, expand the business premises or hire more workers. These things can be costly, and you may be in debt if you fail to manage the situation correctly. With a purchase order financing business loan, you’ll get money you need to cover these expenses and ensure the business grows efficiently. The result is adequate capital to meet the demand and an increase the bottom line.


3. The Company Needs Debt Consolidation

Whenever a small or middle-sized company struggles to pay multiple debts, it may be good to consolidate the debts through refinancing. Through debt merging, one may lessen interest rates, reduce monthly payments, and complete debt payments faster.


If you calculate the interest rates creditors charge on your debts and realize they are incredibly high, it is prudent to roll them up in to a new, lower interest rate, loan. The loan will allow you to reduce the interest rates, helping you save the company money.


Also, loans are useful when you want to come out of debt fast or struggle to make monthly payments. Once you combine the debts in one loan, the payments will be easy to manage.


Before you secure this loan, your company will need good credit (and typically above a 620 FICO score for each guarantor on the loan) — this helps acquire the loan at a low-interest rate. In addition, you’ll need to have a adequate debt service coverage to qualify for the loan. Your company’s debt service ratio improves when you refinance your company debt at lower interest rates. Your financial advisor can share tips on handling this process and ensure you get the company out of debt as quickly as possible.


Operating a business without enough capital can be challenging. You will struggle to sustain it, and if matters like rapid growth occur, you may face funding challenges. Luckily, you can rely on business loans to maintain a positive cash flow. At Huntington Coast Capital, Inc., we can help you secure a loan that meets your business requirements and increases the chances of growth. Talk to us today to get a suitable loan for your company.

Myths About Small Business Loans | Huntington Coast Capital, Inc.

Myths About Small Business Loans | Huntington Coast Capital, Inc.



A business may occasionally require additional cash for short or long-term purposes. As a business owner, you can invest your own money or seek external investment. A small business loan, however, is a more common option.

However, some business owners, especially those who have never taken a business loan, can have several doubts about business loans. Indeed, the process involved in arranging a business loan, its benefits, and many other issues are commonly misunderstood.

Here are some common myths about business loans and the facts that all business owners should know.


Loans Only Benefit Businesses That Aren’t Doing Well

Many assume that any company in need of a loan is facing a hard financial time. Distressed companies have a particular motivation to get loans, but plenty of strong businesses also require occasional loans.

The type of business determines the need for additional financing. Your business can acquire a loan to finance growth and expansion, for instance, through hiring more staff or installing additional equipment. Such improvements can boost your business’ success and make it more competitive.


You Need to Have a Perfect Credit Rating to Get a Loan

To be clear, you should always maintain good credit scores on your personal and business accounts. Having a good credit rating makes borrowing easier and gives you more options for deals you can choose from. However, a low credit score isn’t an indication that you can’t get a loan.

Bad credit does happen, and lenders recognize that. The lenders also recognize that a lower credit score does not necessarily mean you are a lending risk. Therefore, you may still be able to find a lender willing to work with you. You may have to make a trade-off, such as accepting a higher interest rate.


Small Businesses Cannot Apply for Larger Loans

In no way should the size of your business prevent you from approaching a lender for a larger loan. Many lenders prefer high-amount loan applications, including mainstream banks.

However, repayment capability is key for a small business looking to borrow a larger sum of money. Thus, you should be able to provide proof to your lender that your business can afford to repay the loan. If your company lacks adequate cash flow, you may still get a loan if you convince the lender that your business plan will allow you to repay the loan.


All Business Loans Are the Same

Your business may want to borrow money for many reasons, and you have many options for financing your endeavor. Numerous loan options can be advantageous, but they also necessitate research before you apply.

Choosing the right business loan is the first step to obtaining business financing. Some of the types of business loans can include:

  • Working capital loans for every day variable expenses the business has
  • A term loan to finance the cost of fixed expenses or a business acquisition
  • Equipment financing
  • Inventory financing
  • Accounts receivable financing
  • Purchase order financing

You can determine what business loan is best for you by considering factors such as your loan purpose and desired loan terms.


Loan Applications Are Time Consuming

The myth was true years ago — getting business finance approval could take months due to paper-based submissions and employee evaluations. Thanks to paperless digital solutions and software, the process is much faster today. You can complete your application within minutes and get approval in days.

But don’t ignore the importance of doing some preparation beforehand. The lender can turn your business loan request around faster if you provide all of the necessary items they need to underwrite your loan request quickly. The count down to closing starts when the lender has 100% of what they need to issue an approval on your loan.

The misconceptions about business loans can prevent you from being able to take advantage of a favorable financing opportunity. Hopefully, having busted a few myths on business loans has given you a good idea about why loans can be an excellent financing source.

New Purchase Order Financing Program For Contractors!

Purchase Order Financing

Huntington Coast Capital is pleased to announce a new purchase order financing program for contractors! There are typically costs associated with the mobilization of a project. Contractors need to pay for a wide variety of expenses prior to their first invoice. Internal cash flow for contractors is often constrained due to capital being locked up in existing projects. Capital allocation becomes a key skill in managing the cash flow needs.

How is this program different than other purchase order funding programs? 

The mobilization funding program is a type of purchase order financing that provides our clients with working capital when they need it most — at the beginning of a project. We work with you to build a repayment schedule, so you pay us when you get paid. This is not your typical factoring or purchase order financing loan.

Benefits of the program.

This purchase order financing program for contractors solves the short-term cash flow shortage that comes with the cost of mobilizing on a new project. But, that’s only the beginning. Working capital and an accurate project cash flow schedule gives you peace of mind to make payroll, pay vendors, and perform great work with less stress!

How It Works.

This program is based on your contract, not your credit. Once we have your complete application and supporting documents, funding can be available as quickly as 5 business days. Repayment is typically within 5 months and aligns with the first two to three invoices paid on the project.

Requirements To Your Path to Funding (There is some flexibility on these requirements on a case-by-case basis).

  • In business for 2 or more years
  • Gross annual revenue of $1,000,000 or more
  • Three or more active projects at the time of the application being submitted

Initial items needed for the underwriting file.

  • Last 4 months of business bank statements
  • Last two year-end financial statements (balance sheet and income statement)
  • Current interim financial statement
  • Company tax returns for the past 2 years
  • Copy of the contract or purchase order in need of financing

General details of the program.

  • Loans up to 20% of the contract’s value can be utilized for the mobilization of a project
  • Repayment is typically 60 to 150 days
  • Repayment schedule is aligned with your customer payments to allow for sufficient cash flow throughout the life of the project
  • Funds can be utilized for any project related expenses such as direct labor, sub-contractor payments, materials, equipment rental, bonding, and more!
  • Program available for commercial contractors only, residential contractors and projects are not eligible

If your company could benefit from purchase order financing to mobilize your contract, give us a call at 844-239-2632 to discuss the details.

To your success!

Purchase Order Financing Or Equity. Which Is Better For The Growth Of My Business?

Purchase Order Financing Or Equity. Which Is Better For The Growth Of My Business?

Purchase Order Financing

Purchase order financing is the most frequently requested business loan inquiry we receive. Depending on the size of the orders and opportunities that lie ahead for the company, bringing in an equity investor is also a consideration. There are distinct advantages to both and we will outline the main advantages of each here.

The day has come! The customer you have been chasing for weeks, months or even years gives you the purchase order that you have been hoping for! Now, how do we afford to pay suppliers and other costs associated with the order? Ideally, you would be able to do this with internal cash flow and not have a need for outside financing. However, the truth is, if you are doing a good job on the sales and marketing side, you will quickly outgrow your internal capacity. AND, this is a good thing! Of all the stresses business owners encounter, having a large pipeline of sales if the best!

The conversation quickly turns to, “how do we afford these orders now that we have them?” Is purchase order financing or equity the better option? The answer, it depends.

Purchase Order Financing

By financing the cost of goods for your orders, you are leveraging the growth of your business through outside capital. Let’s go through an example:

  • You receive a PO for $100,000
  • Your gross profit is 50%
  • This makes your cost of good also 50%
  • You borrow $50,000 to cover the costs to your suppliers, shipping costs, etc.
  • Your working capital cycle is 90 days from the time you receive the order, to the time you ship, to the time the customer pays
  • Cost of the financing is 3% every 30 days the money is outstanding

Let’s say a major retailer awarded your company a $100,000 PO as outlined above. You need to borrow $50,000 for 90 days. The cost of the financing will be $4,500 for the 90-day period ($50,000 X 9%). Your adjusted gross margin would be $45,500 ($50,000 – $4,500).

The purchase order finance company is repaid by the customer’s payment. By using this form of financing you are leveraging 100% of the cost of goods and have the capital to grow your business. Additionally, the PO financing allows you the added strength of being a cash buyer. Our clients negotiate discount terms with suppliers to offset a portion of the cost of the financing.

For example, a 2% product discount for early payment in the sample transaction above would equate to $1,000 ($50,000 x 2% = $1,000). This savings in product cost would reduce the adjusted finance cost to $3,500 ($4,500 – $1,000 = $3,500).

The advantage of purchase order financing is that it can grow as your business grows assuming your customers are credit worthy. The PO finance company’s primary source of repayment is the customer. This makes the customer’s financial strength a key factor in underwriting these transactions.

The disadvantage of PO financing is that it only covers variable expenses associated to sales. This is where equity may be a better fit.

Equity Capital

Equity comes in to play when you need more than your cost of goods covered. Examples of when equity may be a better call would include the following:

  • The equity group brings value outside of the capital being invested such as supplier and customer contacts.
  • In-roads and introductions of value that the equity group brings to the table
  • When funding for marketing, salaries, plant expansion, and other fixed expenses are needed to grow and scale the company

The equity group will take a percent of ownership in exchange for their investment. The strategy may or may not include the sale of the company in the future at some multiple.

Equity can be a viable option if there are a lot of fixed expenses to be covered. Prepare to give away a large chunk of your company when exploring equity options. The equity group is seeking a return on their investment and realize that they are in the power position by bringing in the majority of the capital needed to grow the company.


Both forms of financing can be useful when growing your business. Purchase order funding can be used as a bridge to finance your growth. Once you scale your business to a certain level and can fund operations internally, you don’t need outside financing and can save the finance cost. On the other hand, equity can cover the costs of a much broader list of expenses. The downside is that it’s a “now and forever” proposition. The equity group and your company are joined “until sale do you part.”

We always advise on debt versus equity when you can. It’s the bridge needed to grow your business, but not permanent by definition. If you would like to discuss which form of financing is best for your business, call us at 844-239-2632. We would be happy to lend a hand!

Purchase Order Financing Versus Letters Of Credit

Purchase Order Financing Versus Letters Of Credit

Paying suppliers is a required and continuous expense for business owners whether you’re in retail, own a restaurant or are a manufacturer or distributor. Cost of goods sold is the first deduction against gross revenue on any companies income statement. The lack of ability to pay for the cost of goods expense severely impacts the growth potential of the business. In this article, we are going to look at the difference between purchase order financing and letters of credit and how they are used in business.

Letters of Credit

Letters of Credit (abbreviated “LC’s”) are bank instruments drafted to secure international and domestic purchases. They provide assurances for both the buyer and the seller of the goods. The seller is assured payment as long as the terms within the LC are met. These can include satisfactory inspection and acceptance of the goods at the port, factory or upon arrival to their destination. When the goods are paid for under the LC is negotiated between the parties.

Letters of Credit essentially assure two things: 1) the buyer has the financial wherewithal to make the payment for the goods, and 2) the supplier will deliver the goods as ordered on time. LC’s are opened with both the buyer’s bank and the seller’s bank and work together to assure the performance of each.

Requirements are a bit more strict with Letters of Credit than they are with purchase order financing. The LC has to have underlying collateral that is typically in the form of cash or accounts receivable.

When a company applies for a Letter of Credit from a bank the company must have an equal or greater amount of cash or accounts receivable available once the LC is drawn on. The buying entity needs to demonstrate that they have the financial wherewithal to cover the cost of goods once conditions have been met. The buying entities funds are typically held in a control account (similar to an escrow account) until needed. This control of the funds is necessary to assure the supplier that funds will remain available for payment from the time ordered to delivery and payment.

In this respect, LC’s really are not a financing tool as no monies are actually borrowed but rather set aside for a particular transaction. This form of international trade “finance” is a protection against financial loss on available capital versus new money used to cover the cost of goods.

This form of financing is set aside for more established companies with enough liquid collateral available to cover the expense. Consider LC’s as an insurance against loss of principle versus true outside financing. For more granular details on Letters of Credit click here.

Purchase Order Financing

Conversely, purchase order programs offer financing to cover the cost of goods to suppliers beyond cash and accounts receivable collateral. Startups, companies experiencing high growth and even the majority of established companies often need additional capital. In the majority of cases, the capital needs are larger than the accounts receivable balance or internal cash reserves.

In these scenarios, Letters of Credit would fall short of the financing needs required to cover the cost of goods.

Purchase order financing pays suppliers for materials required for the buying entity’s growth. Clients utilizing purchase order financing sign contracts with the finance partner. There is typically a personal guaranty for the facility that acts as a backstop should the transaction not offer enough support to pay back the line in a downside scenario.

Purchase order finance underwriters focus on three main areas when assessing new funding requests:

  • Financial strength of the customer(s) for which the PO’s are being generated: when purchase order financing is being requested the fund will want to thoroughly understand the credit strength of the underlying customer. For example, if the underlying customer is a nationally known retailer odds of approval are greater. Conversely, if the PO’s are being generated for a “mom and pop shop” with limited to no financial information available, approval is much more difficult.


  • Financing strength of the supplier: the source of where the goods are coming from whether international or domestic must also be fully understood. Suppliers are typically larger and more established. Usually, but not always, financial information is available on these companies and information can be verified to give the purchase order finance company comfort in wiring them money for the transaction.


  • Transaction history between the parties: It is important to know how long the client has been dealing with a particular supplier. Approval is much easier if there is a long history that can be documented through shipping documents, invoices and bank transactions supporting successful delivery of past orders. Purchase order financing works best when taking a company’s current business cycle from Point A to Point B versus financing orders for an entirely new supplier relationship that has zero past transaction history. This is because there are a number of inherent risks that go with financing first time orders; lack of past, successful delivery of orders, fraudulent supplier claims, capital at risk before performance, to name a few.

Purchase order financing is a line of credit used specifically to cover the cost of goods when capital needs are larger than available internal cash or accounts receivable.

In Summary

If you are an established company with no need to borrow outside capital, a Letter of Credit would be adequate for your needs. LC’s provide assurance against loss of principle by providing a check and balance prior to releasing funds.

Purchase order financing comes in to play when cash needs are higher than internal capabilities.

Both mechanisms facilitate trade financing and move business forward. Which program is best for your company depends on where you fall on the spectrum.

5 Things You Should Know About Purchase Order Financing

5 Things You Should Know About Purchase Order Financing

Purchase order financing is widely used to cover the costs of materials, supplies and delivery expenses associated with various products and services. Huntington Coast Capital has been securing purchase order financing for clients since 2009.

Here are 5 things you should know about purchase order financing:

This financing is offered to cover the cost of goods associated with your sales. 

Companies in most all industries have a cost of goods. There are raw materials needed for manufacturing operations, supplier payments required for wholesalers and inventory purchase needs for eCommerce and retail organizations to name a few. In the beginning, most companies finance their cost of goods internally with their startup capital which usually means their personal savings. If you are successful in your business, you will quickly outgrow your internal capital capacity and need to finance the increased cost associated with your sales. This is where purchase order financing plays a critical role in the growth of your business. Without purchase order financing, companies would be limited in how far they could take their business.

Banks do not offer this form of financing (unless you’re a large corporation and qualify to operate through a Letter of Credit).

For most business owners the first option is to speak with their bank when needing a “line of credit” for their business. The problem is that banks do not offer this form of financing for a number of reasons with the inherent risk in the financing being number one. The bank will offer a nominal line of credit, if at all, based on the financial strength of the business. Unless you’re a blue chip company that is well established, profitable and have a long history with your suppliers, you will not be getting any line of credit worth the time and effort.

Larger companies that meet the criteria can operate under a Letter of Credit which serves a similar purpose as purchase order financing, but is reserved for the top tier companies seeking credit.

Here Is A 30-Second Video Explaining How It Benefits Your Business

The cost is between 2.5% and 4% every 30 days on the money borrowed.

The cost you can expect when exploring your purchase order funding options is a monthly cost between 2.5% and 4% charged against the money borrowed every 30 days. For example, if you needed to borrow $100,000 to cover your supplier costs the finance expense would be between $2,500 and $4,000 for every 30-day period the line remains outstanding. If your margins are the typical 30% the sales price would be $130,000 to the customer and you would pay between $2,500 and $4,000 for the purchase order financing line. Your resulting gross profit would be $26,000 to $27,500 depending on the rates charged.

Keep in mind that while this may seem expensive, this represents a profit you would not normally realize without the financing in place. As a matter of fact, purchase order financing doesn’t cost you anything. You actually lose money by not using using it. This is especially true when the purchase order finance company is covering the entire cost of goods including any supplier deposits and shipping and logistics costs. In short, you’re playing with the house’s money as they say. Your margins and profit realized will be reduced, but still substantially better than the zero profit you would realize by not being able to deliver on the order.

Can work in conjunction with other forms of financing

Purchase order finance companies work nicely in conjunction with other forms of financing. In the majority of cases the business owners already have an existing line of credit. The line limit is not adequate to meet their growth needs and the bank has declined offering them further credit. Purchase order finance companies prefer that the company have access to additional credit as this provides further assurance that their line will be paid off.

Allows for unlimited growth of your business as long as the sales are supported by purchase orders from your customers. 

As alluded to above, purchase order financing provides your company with the access to capital necessary for growth. Companies in all industries utilize purchase order financing in some shape or form. Firstly, there is the direct borrowing of capital as described in this article and then there is credit offered by suppliers (i.e. n30 terms with discounts for early payment) to support growth. However, the later example is becoming more rare as suppliers are in need of cash flow themselves and are requiring payment at the time of purchase.

Our clients experience the benefits of not having to worry about fulfilling orders. There is nothing worse for a company’s reputation than to promise delivery of a product and then not being able to deliver. When this happens the customer loses confidence and seldom return and offer a second chance. You have one chance to prove yourself. Don’t let lack of capital hold your business back!

Purchase Order Financing Versus Supply Chain Funding

Purchase Order Financing Versus Supply Chain Funding

Purchase Order Financing

Supply Chain Funding has been steadily growing in popularity with our clients. Supply Chain Finance programs provide the business owner with capital to cover the cost of goods and make supplier payments.

How does it work?

Finance companies offering this form of financing will look at the business owner’s equity in the business, profitability and growth projections to name a few areas of focus. The credit analysis is slightly different depending on the Supply Chain company you are speaking with. Some set the line amount at a percent of the equity in the business (i.e. 25% of the equity in the beginning raising to 50% over time), and others will base their credit limit decisions on the amount of insurance they can take out on the business, while some have a more subjective approach based on their review of the overall financial picture of the company.

How is Supply Chain Finance different than Purchase Order Financing?

When utilizing Purchase Order Financing, the business owner needs to provide a copy of the purchase order to the lender. The PO copy is the basis for the loan amount being requested and the lender’s collateral. PO finance companies are repaid at the time of delivery to the customer by the company’s factor or asset based loan provider (unless they are managing the total relationship). Purchase order financing is a good source of capital when looking to cover the cost of a specific order of finished goods.

Supply Chain Finance works a little differently. Under this arrangement, the lender will pay the company’s suppliers and then gives the company 30 to 120 days to pay them back through the normal course of business. This type of finance does not need to be specific to any one purchase order for the company. The lender becomes another vendor for the company on their account payable aging. This is a great alternative when the company needs to build inventory for their season or is an online or brick and mortar retailer selling directly to the consumer (no accounts receivable).

Which one is right for your business?

It depends on whether you have specific purchase orders to finance or if you need more of a general line of credit to pay suppliers. Both are great ways to enhance liquidity and each offer the business owner the ability to act with the confidence of a cash buyer. In fact, a good portion of the finance cost can be offset by taking discounts from suppliers for early payment. Utilizing these options are a great way to leverage your buying power and your company’s growth.

Facilitating Business Growth Through Purchase Order and Supply Chain Financing


HCC Apply Online Button

The barrier to growth for most all businesses, especially startup ventures, is cash flow. Banks will tell you that you need two years of profitability (as shown on your company tax returns) before they will consider providing a business loan. If you do manage to qualify for a bank loan, it will almost always be an SBA term loan (one lump sum loan amount usually secured by real estate). These loans do not address the ongoing working capital requirements business owners need to fund purchase orders and other monthly cash flow needs.

This lack of access to capital is the reason the majority of businesses fail within the first three years.

The capital partners we represent have an entrepreneurial approach to lending that opens the door for many to grow their business without the covenants and restrictions of traditional financing! Here are a few examples of recently funded deals:

  • $100,000 Supply Chain Funding Line for a CBD Industry client – a distributor with enormous growth potential needed the capital to fund purchase orders. The initial line provided is $100,000 and will grow as the company’s sales grow. Estimated monthly volume with the financing in place is between $600,000 to $800,000 in monthly gross revenue.
  • $2,500,000 Supply Chain Line for a Home Furnishings Importer/Distributor – an already established company needed additional capital to increase sales. The use of this supply chain line of credit will allow them to grow from $50,000,000 to $75,000,000 in annual gross revenue!
  • $4,000,000 Supply Chain and Factoring Line for an Importer of PPE products – a newly formed entity in the personal protective equipment space needed capital to purchase goods from overseas suppliers. The partners in the business had solid experience and strong relationships on both the supplier and buyer side. The line of credit will allow them to scale their business and meet buyer demand.

The Difference Between Bank Asset Based Loans And Private Asset Based Loans

Huntington Beach, CA  Owning a business takes a lot of cash on hand. Cash to make payroll, pay rent (or a commercial mortgage), purchase supplies, marketing and advertising, etc. Business owners reach out first to the bank they have their business deposits with to see if they can provide them with a loan. Their bank is a good place to start, and if they can qualify, their journey ends there.

Different types of asset based loans.

Asset based loans can be made against any asset seen on a company’s balance sheet. The common assets used as a collateral for a loan are real estate loans, equipment loans, inventory and accounts receivable. Other collateral considered assets by a lender are purchase orders and supply chain funding lines.

Asset Based Loans Obtained From Banks. 

Banks provide asset based loans, but have stricter requirements than the private sector. The first difference you will notice is that a bank will most typically require you to open a deposit account with them in exchange for doing the loan. Depending on the size and type of asset based loan, the bank will require you to switch you entire banking relationship over them as a requirement for doing the loan. Switching your banking relationship is no easy or convenient task.

If deposits are not required, that means that the bank will look to fit you in to an SBA loan program. Banks mainly offer term loans under the SBA loan program versus revolving lines of credit. Loans made against accounts receivable, purchase orders or for supply chain funding are not on the menu for most banks.

The preferred type of asset based loan banks like to issue are for real estate and equipment purchases. The range of your required down payment will depend on the type of loan being considered, your business and personal credit and the amount of liquidity you have on hand post purchase. Most banks set their bottom limit at a 680 credit score or better to be considered for an asset based SBA loan.

Private Sector Asset Based Loans. 

In the private sector the whole credit picture is also considered, but not scrutinized quite as closely. The main consideration is the asset quality itself. For example, in an accounts receivable loan, the credit quality of customers, average collection days and historical bad debt write offs are of paramount importance. The private lender will look at business and personal credit scores and evaluate the company’s financial position, however they will also listen to the story. Many business owners have lower credit scores because all of their cash has gone in to their business and this sometimes creates issues meeting their obligations on time. The private asset based lender understands that an asset based loan will improve the company’s cash and allow them the growth opportunity they wouldn’t otherwise have without access to capital. This especially true when considering loans to finance purchase orders or establish a supply chain line of credit.

What Asset Based Loan Is Right For Your Business? 

Our advice is to always check with your business bank first. They are the ones that have the experience with your business and it’s always prudent to confirm their ability to assist.

The facts are that most business owners do not qualify for bank loans. This is the reason there is a market for the private asset based lender. Private capital can be used as a bridge or as a permanent financing for those that prefer less oversight from their lending partner.
