To help you avoid the traps, we’ve put together this short checklist:
✅ No personal or director guarantees
✅ No security over your assets
✅ The total cost is clear
✅ You’re dealing with an advisor, not a salesperson
The right finance product doesn’t need your guarantee. Personal guarantees mean that, if your business is unable to pay its debt, you’re personally responsible for doing so.
The right finance product doesn’t need your house or private assets as security. If your business is unable to pay its debt, those assets may be sold by your financier with the proceeds being used to repay the debt .
Advertised rates often aren’t the whole story: unclear fees and other charges can quickly add to the cost. If you need to dig to work out the total cost of your finance, that’s a red flag that could be surprise costs for which you hadn’t budgeted.
Every business owner can benefit from good advice.
You need to deal with someone who understands your business and can help you select the finance product best for you.
