As the name suggests, Business loans are given to businesses for short term funding of a business need. These are unsecured loan and hence are not backed up by any security, rather are given purely on the basis of Income of the business. The amount of loan is decided by bank on the basis of income of the customer.
How much can I get?
The most important factor in a business loan is income eligibility.
Income Eligibility is the other important factor to decide how much loan can be extended to a potential borrower on the basis of his/ her income.
What should I know about Interest Rates?
The interest rate on a Business loan is generally higher than all other secured loans.
The interest rate on the loans fixed for the entire term of the loan.
How do I pay back the loan?
The loan gets paid through regular monthly payments termed as EMI (Equated monthly installment). As the word equated suggests the payment remains equal for the entire term of the loan. EMI comprises of the interest payment and the principal payment. Depending on the loan tenure opted; the component of Interest keeps changing.
You can use our EMI calculator to calculate the EMI for any loan amount for a particular tenure on a given rate of interest.
The loan tenure for a commercial can be up to 4 years, depending on the age of the applicant.
The more the tenure of the loan, the higher is the component of Interest in each EMI. You can use our Amortization calculator to understand it better.
Can I pre-pay or foreclose my loan?
As business loans are on a fixed rate, most banks charge a penalty on any part-prepayment made during the loan tenure.
A penalty gets paid on foreclosure of the loan as well.
The penalty ranges between 2% to 4% of the loan amount.
Do I pay any charges while availing a loan?
All banks charge a fee from a borrower to process the loan application. The fee is termed as processing fees or administration charges.
The fees on a business loan ranges between 1% to 3% depending on the loan value, the borrower profile etc.
We help you negotiate best terms with the lender, hence we refund part or full fees to our borrowers making it a free processed loan for them.
What is the break up of Interest & Principal payment in each EMI?
Each EMI you pay for the repayment of the loan comprises of two components – Principal & Interest. The break up of these two components in each EMI depends on the loan tenure. The lower the loan tenure, higher is the principal payment in each EMI.
The break up can be best understood by making an amortization schedule of the loan.
Amortization refers to spreading payments over multiple periods. It is the paying off a loan with a fixed repayment schedule in regular installments over a period of time.
