About business loans
What exactly is an asset-based loan (a secured loan)?
Asset-based borrowing is when a business owner borrows from an asset they own to make the funding. The asset can be an asset belonging to the personal, like the family home or it could be a company asset like a truck as well as a piece of machine.
The majority of lenders, even the largest banks, are inclined to make loans secured by assets. If you’re having trouble paying back the loan then your asset may be sold by the lender. In essence, it is means of securing new financing by taking advantage of the value of what you already own.
Should I require security for a business loan?
For loans that exceed $150,000, it is not necessary to secure assets before you can access the money, however we do need a personal guarantee. In the event that you fulfill your loan obligations (as stipulated in your loan contract document) the security of assets is not needed. For loans of over $150,000 typically, you will need the option of a personal guarantee and security that is in the form an asset charge.
