Check eligibility

The first step to applying for a business loan is to check your eligibility. Every financier uses a unique framework to make lending decisions. Borrowers must understand the eligibility criteria to know if they qualify for a business loan.

While any Indian citizen running a credible business and a good credit score is eligible for a business loan with IIFL Finance, there are a few qualifying factors as described below –

  1. Business owners running proprietorship firms are eligible to apply for a business loan from IIFL Finance.
  2. Age: Minimum age to apply for a business loan is 23 years, and the maximum age is 65 years.
  3. Years of Operation: The business should be operational for 2 years or more and function at a reasonable scale.
  4. Credit Score: Lenders judge the creditworthiness of the client based on the credit score. They consider a score of 700 and above as an indicator of a good and trustworthy borrower.
  5. Repayment Ability: It is essential to know the cost of funds borrowed. Before taking a loan, borrowers must assess whether the EMI (Equated monthly instalment) is affordable. By entering the proposed loan amount, tenure, and interest rate in the IIFL Business loan calculator, you can find out the exact monthly instalment amount and check if it fits your budget.


Fill personal details

Enter basic personal details such as name and email id. The app/website will request consent to fetch your credit report. Once personal details are verified through OTPs and consent is received, the borrower must enter the PAN Card number.


Update business details

The next step is to update basic business details such as :- Type of Business, Business Name, Date of Incorporation, Annual Income Range, and GST details if registered.

Once the details are updated, you need to submit a simple one-pager application form and the details of the purpose of the loan.

Also, with the My Money app, borrowers can benefit from tracking the application status in real-time. Applicants are informed of their application status via email and SMS alerts for those without the app.

IIFL Finance has recently announced a quick and easy way to apply for Business loans via WhatsApp. Using Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based bot technology, the company matches the users' details to a suitable loan offer. Without downloading a new app, borrowers can use WhatsApp, & just send the message 'Hi' to 9019702184 to apply for business loans up to 10 lakhs and receive instant sanctions. IIFL Finance ensures faster approvals by leveraging the latest technology to speed up basic KYC and bank account verification checks.


Upload KYC and Business Proof Documents

KYC (Know Your Customer) is an effective way to verify the authenticity of the customer. While filling out the loan application, the customer must submit KYC documents on the financial institution’s portal.


Documents for Insta Loan

  1. Application form
  2. KYC documents as per RBI Guidelines (address and ID Proof).
  3. GST Certificate (Optional).
  4. Business Registration proof to verify years of operation
  5. Latest six months’ bank statements.


The above list of documentation is not exhaustive, and additional documents may be required for credit evaluation and loan application processing.


Register bank account and auto-pay

The applicant should register their active bank account on the IIFL Finance website for seamless disbursement and EMI repayment. With an online facility, borrowers can receive funds and make payments anywhere, anytime.

The payment infrastructure is quick, easy, convenient and safe. Additionally, customers can directly pay their dues through Paytm, Phone pe, Google Pay, Mobikwik and Bhim. Customers can also repay the loan amount through Auto-pay by setting up NACH. e-NACH, supported by RBI and developed by NPCI, helps customers set up standing instructions to hassle-free repayment obligations. Once set up, customers need not put reminders to pay EMIs. The amount is automatically debited on the due dates, so no instalments are missed. Through auto-pay, borrowers can rest easy knowing their loans are repaid on time without affecting their credit scores and credit reputation.
