10 Things the Bank Will Ask When You Need a Business Loan

Which business loan you want for your company? Well the financial institution is demanding lot of documents before they give you the loan.

Do you find this very troublesome? Me too. I was really disappointed when I needed my company’s first business loan to finance receivables of more than RM1 million from well known distributors no less and we ended up having to refinance our home/property to get the bank loan.

We said, “Wait, we’re a company, why do we need personal guarantees?”

They said, “If you don’t believe in your business, then we don’t either.”

We said “Wait, these are good receivables, you already checked the credit ratings of these distributors, why aren’t they enough?”

They said, “If you don’t believe…(see above).” And at that point I realized the truth in the old cynical joke that says banks will lend you money only if you don’t need it.

Many entrepreneurs discover as they look for business loan is that banks don’t fund business plans. The reason, they want to see your track records and capability before lending out any loan. Banks are dealing with depositors’ money. Would you want your bank to invest your checking account balance in a startup? I wouldn’t.

So here’s what to expect a bank to ask for when you apply for a commercial loan for your business. There will be occasional exceptions to every rule, of course, but here’s the general rule:

1. Collateral

As I explained above, banks do lend money to startups. One exception to the rule is that the government agency has programs that guarantee some portion of startup costs for new businesses so banks can lend them money with the government, reducing the banks’ risk.

So your business has to have hard assets/ property it can pledge to back up a business loan. Banks look very carefully at these assets/property to make sure they reduce the risk. For example, when you pledge Accounts Receivable to support a business loan, the bank will check the major receivables accounts to make sure those companies are solvent and they will accept only a portion, often 50 or sometimes 75%, of receivables to back a loan. When you get some working capital, the bank will accept only a percentage of the your assest/property market value and they check with multiple valuer, to make sure the standard market value is obtained.

The need for collateral also means that most small business owners have to pledge personal assets, usually house equity, to get a business loan.

2. Business plan

There are exceptions, but the vast majority of business loan applications require a business plan document. Nowadays it can be short perhaps even a company profile but banks still want that standard summary of company, product, market, team, and financials. We offer professional advised on business profile, contact us

3. All of your business’s financial details

That includes all current and past loans and debts incurred, you can check on the CCRIS report, all bank accounts, investment accounts, credit card accounts, and of course, supporting information including income tax numbers. All this information is important for applying for a business loan.

6. Complete financial statements, preferably audited or reviewed

The balance sheet has to list all your business assets, liabilities and capital, and the latest balance sheet is the most important. Your Profit and Loss statements should normally go back at least three years, but exceptions can be made, occasionally, if you don’t have enough history, but you do have good credit and assets to pledge as collateral. You’ll also have to supply as much profit and loss history as you have, up to three years back.

Regarding audited statements, having “audited” statements means you’ve paid a few thousand ringgit to have a Certified Public Accountant ,CPA go over them and take some formal responsibility for their accuracy. CPAs get sued over bad audits. The bigger your business, the more likely you’ll have audited statements ready as part of the normal course of business for reasons related to ownership and reporting responsibilities.

7. All of your personal financial details

This includes all your savings, Fix deposit account or investment account, net worth, details on assets and liabilities such as your home, vehicles, investment accounts, credit card accounts, hire purchase loans, mortgages, the whole thing that has in your ccris report. For businesses with multiple owners, or partnerships, the bank will want financial statements from all of the owners who have significant shares. The owner will expect to sign a personal guarantee as part of the loan process.

8. Insurance information

Since it’s all about reducing the risks, banks will often ask newer businesses that depend on the key founders to take out insurance against the deaths of one or more of the founders. And the fine print can direct the payout on death to go to the bank first, to pay off the loan.

9. Copies of past Income Tax form (Form B, Form P)

Banks want to see the corporate tax returns as well caused if the business is profitable then the company is responsible to pay for the taxes.


10. Revenue and Profits

Most business loan requirement is business need to generate revenue and profit.
