Mitigating Risks For Startups And Small Businesses

Businesses today operate in extremely competitive global environments, often leading to bumpy journeys, punctuated with kinks in the cash flow. Sometimes the challenge is the need to continuously upgrade technology in order to stay relevant. Sometimes, the challenge is meeting regular expenditure due to delayed payments or bleak market conditions. Today, fortunately, it is relatively easy to raise a small business loan from a registered NBFC or bank, like IIFL Finance, with limited paper-work and quick approvals to help businesses overcome such challenges .

Perhaps one of the most useful features of a small business loan offered is the fact that you can avail of it as an unsecured business loan. This is especially useful if your business is young or service-oriented, with limited or no assets to pledge as security against the loan raised. The unsecured business loan can be used for a variety of purposes – to buy new machinery or upgrade existing one, office renovation or expansion, meet regular business expenses like salaries or purchase of raw material during a cash flow issue, to travel to meet clients, marketing and promotion, or any necessary business expenditure.

Another reason why the unsecured business loan seems to make logical sense, is that in case there are severe and unexpected disruptions in the business operation, making it impossible for you to repay the loan, you will not have to forego a business or personal asset in case of non-repayment. If the loan had been a secured loan, you would have had to surrender the pledged business or personal asset. In the case of non-payment of unsecured loans, the lender may however approach the courts for relief and intervention, following which you will have to abide by the decision of the court.

While the attractive feature of such business loans is that it does not require collateral, this also means that the unsecured business loan interest rate is higher than secured business loans. Lenders charge a higher rate in order to cover the risks associated with the lack of collateral. Your personal or business credit score influences the interest rates as well – a good credit score means that you will be offered more favourable terms of interest.
