?When your company needs extra money for inventory or supplies, time is of its core. Waiting for a business finance or loan approval can cut into your profits. To ensure that the loan approved as soon as possible, be certain you have all the required documents in advance. Doing so can get a loan approved in as little as 5-10 business days. Business Plan: If you haven't done so, create a business plan. Not only will banks and lenders will probably need that you have one, a business plan is your roadmap to success. It should comprise your goals, possible obstacles, financial forecasting, key details and business risk. Balance Sheet: A balance sheet includes the company's property, liabilities and assets (assets minus liabilities). Income statement: Also known as profit and loss statement, this includes your profits and losses for a certain period of time. It will include the company's expenses (such as advertising, insurance, etc.), cost of goods sold, and sales. Cash flow statement: A cash flow statement details the monthly cash-flows (inflows and outflows), which can include when you expect to pay or collect on debts owed. Loan Repayment Plan: Your loan repayment plan should comprise what you plan to borrow, where you intend to use it, and about how to plan to repay it. Other documents: Other document you must include are estimated cash flow sheets, business and personal tax returns, the collateral that you plan to set up, lease, franchise agreements and resumes of management personnel.
