What can business loans be used for?

Business loans can be used for a great many reasons, but here are some of the most common ones:

  • Increasing working capital to cover day-to-day operating costs
  • Buying a new building
  • Buying another business or franchise
  • Buying assets e.g. cars, vans, computers or plant and machinery
  • Bridging the receipt of money from another source e.g. a land sale or tax refund
  • Paying taxes
  • Buying out another shareholder or partner

In most cases, you will be looking at a loan as a means of developing and growing your business, but there will be occasions when a loan is needed to meet a pressing bill or to keep the business afloat through a tough trading time. This is a legitimate purpose, but you need to be comfortable in your own mind that you can meet the repayments. Putting off until tomorrow, what needs to be addressed today is rarely a good idea and it is worth seeking professional help if you are not sure what to do.
