15 Mar Getting a Small Business Loan in Perth
An updated guide to funding your Perth-based small business
So you’ve got a brilliant idea, a unique selling proposition, and a marketing plan to start your own company but there’s one thing that’s stopping you—you don’t have funds. The idea of being your own boss is an exciting thought until you find ways on how to finance it. I’ve heard so many stories from people who failed to pursue their business dreams because they didn’t realise that there are a number of finance options available.
Navigating through these deals can be tricky, hence this article aims to walk you through the important things you need to know.
What types of business loans are there?
These can be split into two main types of finance: equity finance and debt finance. Equity finance is money that is sourced from within the business or from an investor and doesn’t need to be repaid. Debt finance is money that is borrowed and needs to be repaid. Here are some examples of equity and debt finance:
- Venture capitals
- Initial public offering
- Investments from family and friends
- Private investors
- Government grants
- Loans from banks
- Loans from standalone business lenders
- Invoice factoring
- Loans from family and friends
Lenders have different criteria to determine whether you are eligible for a loan. Want to know if you are? Chat with me today.
