Depending on the type of funding suited to your business, different documentation is required.
For example: If you are applying for a secured loan, the process is quite thorough and you will need documents to prove the value and ownership of the collateral you are providing. In return, you will likely get a cheaper finance product. It is less risky for the lender.
For a quick unsecured loan or merchant cash advance, you might not need as much documentation.
As a bare minimum this is usually what is required from our lenders:
- Director’s ID Documents
- Business Proof of Registration
- Tax Clearance Certificate (or affidavit)
- 6 Months Bank Statements
For higher loan amounts, and more thorough lenders, these additional documents may be required:
- Management accounts
- Annual financial statements
- VAT Registration document (if applicable)
