Business Loan or Personal Loan

edited October 2016 in Startup Funding
We have a great business plan and are looking for funding for a start-up. We have identified the ideal location which is available now so time is of the essence. We spoke to The Business FInance Store today. Does anyone have experience with them? We need about 100k for the start-up. I can qualify for a personal loan which will get us that amount or we can get a business loan, at lower rates, but not for the full amount. The contact there cautioned us against using both a business loan and a personal loan - inferring the combination may create credit issues. These are unsecured loans. When I spoke to banks they want collaterlized loans and we don't have enough to qualify. Any advise or feedbak is appreciated.

    It's your personal business right? So i think you should apply for a personal loan. If this is a sharing business then business loan is better.

    There are a number of differences between personal loans and business loans. You need to have a business to get a business loan but personal loans don't necessitate that. You can use personal loans which are mostly unsecured loans for a variety of purposes. Business loans will definitely ask for a collateral or guarantor and if you can't provide a good collateral, the interest rate will be significantly high or you may not qualify. Your personal credit score, income and credit history will be evaluated while you are applying for a personal loan. In contrast, the credit history and income of your business will be taken into account when you request for a business loan. So, the purpose and requirements of these two types of loans make them wholly distinct.

    Many industrialists are growing up their business by taking loans from the banks. Its not the big deal whether one is taking loan or not. The matter is that how capable is he in returning that amount to the lenders in minimal time.
    Especialyy for startups, it is important to wrok round the clock and take help from some good experienced industriial people to gain the experinece how to work and exist in the so-competitive market. Venture capital firms are doing the same and working with well-reputed comapnies so that they can help to the people who are going to start their business.

    Depending on the structure of your business, I would strongly suggest taking the Business Loan route.

    Assuming your business is of a limited liability nature, a business loan will be associated with the business, not you. If you take out a personal loan, and your business fails for any reason, your personal credit may be effected.

    By taking out a business loan, if your business fails, your personal credit won't be effected. Of course, this is assuming that you've taken the time to setup an separate credit account for your business (something like "Run and Dun").

    It really comes down to your strategy. Just be aware of the risk your personally assuming if the loan should default.

    Kindest Regards,

    Hi dear all,

    If you are going to start a new business and you are running short of finance and your required loan amount is big then you can avail the services of bank. But if you want small amount then in such case banks often mean makes in providing you loan. Then in such case best option available to you is to take the services of private advance providing companies. When I started my business, it was running fine and later on I thought to extend it. Banks refused me to provide loan. I discussed the matter with my freind and he privided me the reference of https://merchcash.com/what-is-a-merchant-cash-advance.I am still thinking on the issue. If anyone of you has any knowledge on the subject, please intimate me.

    I would favor business loans as compared with personal loans as they generally have much lower interest rates

    Personal loan, definitely. I recently applied for a personal loan with a company called upwards. The services are really quick and hassle-free. I have had many such loan experiences which were very irritating. The wait and approval time really made me not want to opt for personal loans. When I found the services of upwards that had really helpful customer care. Their customer care is also reachable for doubts and gives a quick response. My loan was approved within 24 hours of applying for the personal loan. I would totally recommend this to people instead of going for loans from banks. There are many reviews and in-detail procedure available to assure. I will ask you to go to their website and check out the schemes and policy. It does take a lot of patience to get your loan approved from a bank. you can also check this site it was helpful for me. https://upwards.in/personal-loan-bangalore

    According to my opinion taking a business loan is beneficial for you as it offers low-interest rates. But if you are seeking for a quick loan, then a personal loan is the best option. Also, you can take advise from your financial adviser.
