Services – Bank of Scotland
A business loan is like a personal loan, however, it's particularly intended for business utilization. With a business loan, you're loaned a certain amount of cash over a period of years and must repay via regularly scheduled instalments.
What are the benefits of getting a business loan with us?
Business loans can help with money stream shortfalls or tide you over when business is tough by offering access to transient finance.
Long term business loans can help you get by over a more extended period – if, for instance, you have to pay for once-off business costs or have store extension plans to be completed - this loan can help you. Start-up loans can offer you cash loans when you first set out to start your own business, and can be imperative when dealing with the requests of workers, clients and an unstabale income. Start-up loans can also be taken out by individuals in the form of a personal short term loan.
Who can apply for a business loan?
Any firm can seek a business loan, regardless of how big or how small they may be.
The Bank of Scotland - we get it
In light of tough economic times it's become harder for businesses to be approved for credit and we understand that this can be devastating to entrepreneurs who are desperate to make their dreams a reality.
To request a business loan, your business will normally need to be a registered company and have the neccessary financial history and information available. The Bank of Scotland offers a reduced loan rate of up to 1% as a feature of our loaning plan.
