The time in business required for this cash flow loan is only 3 months of cash flow statements. Once the time in business is 1 year or more, higher loan amounts can be approved. Credit scores can be as low as 500 and deposit dollar totals can be as low as $10,000 per month and 5 deposits per month. This is a relationship product and the initial approved limits are increased rapidly as this line of credit style product is reused. Businesses are able to obtain more funding through this method than with a traditional loan. If a business is approved for a traditional loan for $50,000 for 36 months, then they can get far more in working capital through this cash flow loan. With this product, if the customer is approved for $25,000 for a 6 month term all they have to do is renew every 6 months and they would end up with a total of $150,000 over the entire 36 months, which is 3 times what they would have received with the other traditional financing.

Credit score requirements for the cash flow loan are approximately 500 and higher in many instances. As the credit score increases, funding amounts will increase and the terms will improve

Frequently asked Questions:
Question: Do we qualify? Answer: If your business has cash flow, has been in business for at least 9 months with the same owner, your business has an excellent chance to qualify for $5,000 to $150,000 depending upon that Cash Flow
Question: Do I need to complete a lot of paperwork? Answer: No. You will only need a one page application and the most recent 3 months business checking account statements. In many cases, only the most recent one month’s business checking account statement is required.
Question: What can I do if I need more working capital again later? Do I have to re apply from scratch all over again? Answer: No. Once the line has been established, you are an existing customer with us, the type that we value the most. You will have a very easy time using the credit line over and over again. In most cases, you either only need to place a call to authorize more funding, or simply provide the most recent statements to qualify for another round of this cash flow loan.
Question: What if I have bad credit?
Answer: The approval is driven very heavily on the cash flow. Even if you have difficult credit, it is the cash flow of your business that will be the main factor in the approval of the line.
Question: What do you look at in the cash flow?
Answer: The monthly raw dollar amount of deposits, the number of deposits per month, and the average daily balance. The higher the average daily balance, and the more that is deposited per month, the higher the approval amount will be. The most recent three months will be looked at. If the cash flow trend is upward, a higher dollar amount cash flow loan will likely be approved compared to flat or declining monthly dollar figures.
Question: I had a recent bankruptcy in the last 2 years, does that disqualify me?
Answer: Not necessarily. It depends on how recent the bankruptcy was and how the cash flow has been since then. If the Bankruptcy is at least a few months old and the cash flow since that time has been strong, there is an opportunity for a line to be established.

Due to constant advances in the Medical field, Medical equipment equipment depreciates quickly.    Many types of Medical equipment becomes totally obsolete in a short amount of time.   However, Small Business Loans Depot can utilize Medical Equipment that has undergone full depreciation and is several years old.

The practice may have additional financing and working capital needs after the equipment refinance product is completed.   Other available programs include:

Gross Sales Cash flow loan –  This financing product may be very desirable for Medical Practices as it is based on the Gross Sales and cash flow of the practice.  Medical practices often have significant cash flow, so this product can provide significant Working Capital to the practice.

This Medical practice loan product is used, in effect as a line of credit.   The practice provides the most recent 3 months business checking account statements and a one page application.    The average daily collected balance, the amount and number of deposits per month, beginning balances, and ending balances are reviewed in order to determine the approved amount.

The customer sends in the 3 months business checking account statements and one page application.   Upon approval, the customer is E-Mailed documents.   The customer completes the documents and faxes them back in.   A final landlord check and verbal verification is completed.    Funds are wired into the customer’s account within 1-3 business days.

Repayment terms on this Medical Practice loan range from 3 to 18 months.     Once the customer satisfactorily repays the line, the line size is increased.   The customer is not obligated to use the available line.   They can reuse the line immediately or leave it idle for any amount of time.

If the customer provides the last 1 or  2 years tax returns and they are strong, the initial line size can be greater and future line increases can be more as well.

Sample Asset based Equipment refinance transaction:

Primary Care Physician PCP, Dr. Smith, in Lexington, Kentucky, 6 Years in business, 650 credit score with a Dun & Bradstreet Paydex Score = 65.     Dr. Smith provides One page application and his equipment list.

Upon approval in 2-3 days, Documents are E-Mailed to Dr. Smith.   Dr. Smith completes and overnights original docs back.   A final verbal confirmation takes place within a day.  In most cases there is no site inspection.  Funding occurs in 2-3 business days.

In most cases, Financials and Bank Statements are not required.   However, if the customer’s Financials or Bank Statements are strong, the customer can opt to provide to strengthen their application.   If the customer has a strong credit bureau score of over 700 or over 725, financials may not be requested.    Although there is a certain dollar amount above which financials are requested for this form of financing, there is often some discretion used by the lender.   If the customer has a credit score of 750, then the lender may consider an extra $10K or $20K without requesting financials for a medical practice loan compared to a customer with a 675 credit score.  

The lender has guidelines that they follow but they do have the authority to stray from the guidelines to a degree if they can justify it.

The following video provides an overview of the medical practice loan program as well, including features and benefits.

Frequently asked questions:

Question:  What is the maximum we should apply for?
Answer:  That depends on a few factors, but in general, a good rule is to
apply for not much more than the minimum amount that you need.  If your
business needs between $50,000 and $100,000, then do not apply for
$100,000 to $150,000.   Some applicants think that they should apply for the maximum amount, or “go for the moon”.  They believe that the more they ask for, the more they
get.   This is not true.   With many lenders, the more you apply for, the more difficult it is
to get approved.  With many lenders, if you apply for too much, they will simply decline
the request rather than approving your business for a lower amount.   If your business only needs $50,000 in working capital but applies for $150,000, then it may be turned down completely and not receive any funding.   In this case, the business should apply for as close to $50,000 as they feel they can.

Question:  Are there minimum credit scores that are required for funding?
Answer: For the leaseback program, a credit score of minimum 650 is needed
in most cases for a medical practice loan.  For the financing based on gross sales
which is based on the practice’s total receipts, there is no minimum credit score,
although scores above 500 are preferred and having a credit score over 600 allows
for more favorable terms and larger approval amounts.

Question:  How long does it take to obtain funding?    Answer: For this loan, the entire process takes approximately 7 to 10 business days.    Upon receiving the simple one page application, the credit process takes from one to three business days.  Upon an approval, documents are sent to the customer, which is same day.   It will take one to two days for the customer to return the documents.    After this, the review of the documents and verbal confirmation takes two to three business days.    After this, it takes approximately one to three days for the customer to receive wired funds into their account, for a total of seven to ten business days for this medical practice loan.

Question:  How much can we qualify for?   Answer: The amount a practice can obtain for this loan depends primarily on the time in business, business credit, personal credit and cash flow.    The cash flow may be demonstrated by either the business bank statements, or financials of the company, which could be a profit and loss statement, or interim financials, or previous years financials, or some combination of these.

Question: How much paperwork will be required?   Answer: For requests under $50,000 just a one page application and asset list is required in most cases.    If the request is over $50,000 and the business does not have both significant and strong business credit, then the company will probably want to provide an interim P & L, Profit and Loss statement.     If the most recent three months business checking account statements are available adn they are strong, the company applying will also want to provide those bank statements.    If this information is available, it should not be considered as documentation that has to be provided but information that will strengthen the application.

Question: What if we are approved for a medical practice loan, but for less than we need? Answer:  If your business is approved for less than is needed, in many cases, a second funding segment, or “part” may be approved.     This will depend on the strength of the company, but is often possible and many applicants are approved for significant funding.  In addition, there are also other funding programs available under which the applicant may obtain funding.    If one program cannot provide enough funding, another may be enough to get the customer all of the funding they need.

Question: What are the terms available?   Answer:   Terms for the asset based loan program are 24, 36, 48 or 60 months.   For the Bank Statement Financing program, terms are shorter.   Terms for this program are between 3 to 18 months.

Question: Is there an early payoff provision?   Answer:  Some of these medical practice loan programs are set up in part as a lease transaction for which the early payoff provisions are not as attractive as with other types of financing.   In exchange, the tax write of advantages are often the most favorable of financing programs, often rivaling the mortgage loan deduction write off advantage.

Question: How can we qualify for a larger amount, such as $75,000 or $100,000 or more? Answer: In most cases, providing strong financial statements with increasing Gross sales and increasing net income will provide a strong boost in an effort to qualify for a larger amount.    Another way is to prove the longest time in business possible.    For instance, many businesses are not incorporated when they are first established.   In many cases, they begin as sole proprietors or partnerships.  These entities do not show up at the Secretary of State in most states.    If a company began as a sole proprietor and remained as a sole proprietor for 5 years, then incorporated for 5 years after that, they may only been credited with 5 years in business.    The lender will check with the Secretary of State and see only 5 years.

In cases such as this, the physician applying for a medical practice loan can provide the oldest business licences they can find to prove the full time in business.   Another option is to provide the oldest financial statements available or schedule C they can obtain.   This documentation will demonstrate 10 years in business which, all things equal, is considered significantly stronger than 5 years time in business.   Some lending institutions, particularly  traditional lending institutions do not seriously consider businesses with less than 3 years in business and will not provide loans, especially loans of significant amounts unless they the medical practice is more than 5 years old.    As such, being able to prove more than 10 years in business in such an example will be especially helpful for a practice applying for a medical practice loan.

Question: Can we apply and qualify for a medical practice loan just in the business name?
Answer:  While some Corporation only loans are approved, the vast majority of requests and approvals require the owner’s credit profile to be reviewed and on the paperwork as a signer at closing.   For a company to have an opportunity for a Corporation only request, the time in business needs to be a minimum of 5 years with 10 years or more preferred. The company needs to have a strong business credit file with the major business credit agencies.   A Paydex score of 70 or higher is required.   Gross receipts will need to be strong, often over $1,000,000 per year.   If the business is very strong on other areas, gross receipts less than this will be considered.   The companies financials have to be provided and they have to be strong.   Increasing gross sales and net sales are expected.  The minimum net income reported is preferred to be $100,000 or more in most cases.  Interim financials are requested and the same is requested for the interim financials.

Practice Analysis:  How to determine what types of loans your practice should look at.
Many business owners, including medical practices, first decide which type of loan they want and like the best, then apply for that specific type of loan.

The first step in the process is to consider what are the practice’s strengths, such as cash flow, equipment, patient records, financials, etc..  Then look at which loans best match up with these strengths.   Try to find out the guidelines and approval criteria for those loans, and along with your chief financial officer or a representative of those programs, determine which of these program your business is most likely to qualify for.   Once you have determined which programs your practice will, or most likely will qualify for, list them in priority based on your practice’s needs and which will work better for your cash flow and medium to long term plans.

Is it really that significant to choose a loan that only uses some of your collateral?  After all, I’ll pay it off soon enough.   There are at least 2 major reasons to place major significance on financing that only uses part of the practice’s collateral.   The first one is that it gives the practice much more opportunity to acquire additional loans if in 1 or 2 years it unexpectedly realizes it could use additional financing for other purposes.  If this occurs, the practice will have collateral available that it may be able to leverage for other financing.   The 2nd reason is that if there is an unexpected downturn in business or natural disaster and the practice has difficulty paying the loan, it will be less likely that the entire practice is in jeopardy.

Will Supercommittee failure spook markets?

Will a supercommittee failure now on the horizon spook markets?   Ever since the debt ceiling debacle in early August, the new supercommittee was supposed to be the ultimate answer to the gridlock in congress.

However, sources that have been close to the process over the long haul quickly recognized and predicted that the supercommittee may not be so super after all.  Predictions came fast that a supercommittee failure was as likely as congress’s failure to raise the debt ceiling in early August.

How can that be?  After all, congress gave them the job they could not do before, but this time they added some of the most severe  financial and socially significant consequences ever placed on a committee.   If a supercommittee failure came due to a deadlock and inaction, automatic, and significant spending cuts would occur.

Now the time is at hand, the deadline for the supercommittee to recommend where to cut billions and how much to cut each program is at hand and they are deadlocked.     Markets will not react favorably if the deadline passes and no agreement is reached for at least two reasons, even in the face of automatic spending cuts.

–  If there is a supercommittee failure, domestic and international markets will see yet another failure on the part of government to address and solve serious financial issues.    If the highest levels of government cannot solve government  problems,  who will?  Markets will react unfavorably to what will be considered “Strike two” on the issue.

–  Ensuing to such a supercommittee failure, markets will simultaneously realize that bond rating agencies, Moody’s and Standard and Poors will also react unfavorable to the supercommittee failure and this will be factored into their future U.S. Treasury ratings.

Moody’s has already downgraded U.S. treasuries for the first time in history in 2011.     The government disagreed vehemently with their decision.   However, further U.S. government failure and inaction on U.S. deficit problems will weaken the government’s argument and position.

–   Most ominously,  some politicians have already begun quietly whispering that in the face of the feared supercommittee failure the legislated automatic spending cuts they created cannot happen and must be undone prior to them taking effect.

If this took place, the consequences may be worse than just letting     the cuts happen.    It would be amongst the most visible example in recent times of the failure of government and the failure to solve the country’s most severe fiscal problems by any reasonable measure.

The bond rating agencies, Moody’s and Standard & Poors would react most unfavorably to this scenario.   Moody’s and Standard & Poors has already indicated that they are not alarmed at the prospect of a supercommittee failure due to the automatic spending cuts in place if the committee is deadlocked and cannot come to an agreement.

The bond rating agencies, as most everyone else, thought that this time this committee would force itself to succeed and come to a compromise with elements that both sides vehemently disagree with.   This is the thinking because the automatic spending cuts, many of which they see will be worse than the cuts they cannot agree on now.

If politicians really break their promise, legislation and law regarding these automatic spending cuts in the face of a supercommittee failure, markets and bond rating agencies will surely react extremely unfavorably.   Markets would decline over time.    The most major negative consequences would occur in the 1-3 year range.   If bond rating agencies downgrade U.S. treasuries yet again, markets would decline most for fear of the long term impact of one or more ratings downgrades.

It seems that the very real prospect of the worse alternative to a supercommittee failure is not enough to spur agreement on less painful choices now.

leaseback why vehicles are difficult

In a leaseback transaction, in which an asset is sold for cash and leased back to obtain working capital, vehicles are difficult to use.

Small business loans Depot’s vehicle leaseback program will get you working capital quickly against your commercial vehicles.

Contact us Toll Free at: 855-787-1113 today or complete the “contact us” form by clicking in the menu above and a representative will contact you!

The primary reason vehicles are difficult to use in a leaseback transaction is that the collateral is very mobile.    The collateral can easily go from one state to another in the course of a few hours.    Additionally, the individual or business in possession of the asset can make a decision at any time to easily move the asset, which can make repossession extremely difficult.

Another reason vehicles are more cumbersome to use in a leaseback transaction is that vehicles have titles and the title work must be done for the transaction.   The title has to be held as collateral and the lien holder information has to be placed on the actual title.   The information on the title has to be 100%  consistent with the name on the loan documentation and any other paperwork.   If the information is even slightly different, the security interest of the lender in the asset can be compromised in a default situation.

Although vehicles are sometimes more difficult to use in a leaseback due to the issues above and are the reason they are sometimes not preferred,  if the lender is willing to use vehicles, they can be a very desirable type of financing for the lender.    This is especially true when the borrower is a homeowner.     When the borrower is a homeowner, the likelihood that the borrower will permanently move the collateral in an extreme past due or default situation is significantly reduced.

Statistics have shown that homeowners are much more likely to remain in their home and not leave the area, even in personally difficult situations  when compared to a borrower that is in an apartment.    That makes the security interest in the lender much stronger.

For the reasons stated, it is typically more difficult to use vehicles in a leaseback.

leaseback is it reported on business credit?

In a leaseback transaction, is the leaseback reported on the business credit?

In most cases it is not reported on the business credit.   The largest business credit reporting agencies, Dun & Bradstreet and Experian business credit report have a history of not reporting traditional bank loans and leases.    The reasons why are both a mystery and proprietary.    The result is that businesses that have taking out significant loans,  a lease, or leaseback, do not always get the benefit of it reporting on their business credit.

To get working capital for your business through a leaseback, contact us today at Toll Free: 855-439-4543 or complete the “contact us” form by clicking contact us in the menu bar above and a representative will contact you!

The exception seems to be the business reporting agency Paynet.   Paynet eports many types of bank loans, leases and a leaseback, and as a result, the reporting automatically provides a reference for businesses that have taken out this type of financing.   However, many companies that review the references or business credit of a business, will not review the Paynet report and will miss this trade reference information.

Businesses should have this trade reference information ready when they inquire or apply for a business loan, lease or a leaseback. The company name, account number and high credit should be provided in order for the company to get the benefit of the financing they are applying for.

If a business has a Dun & Bradstreet report and an Experian business credit report, the business should take the same loan, lease or leaseback information, call up these business credit reporting agencies and ask if these are being reported.   There is a strong possibility they are not being reported because these are loans and leases and some of these companies only report trade references, which are often different than loans and leases.    Since the representatives of these business credit reporting agencies say they do not know the companies that are reporting tradelines to them, they will not be able to say whether or not the loan, lease or leaseback is being reported.

A copy, or access to the report should be requested and reviewed.   The best way to match up the leaseback, loan or lease to the tradelines being reported is to look at the business credit report under industry type and also in the tradeline section which reports the dollar amounts.    This information should be used to attempt to match up accounts and determine if the leaseback, loan or lease is being reported.

If so, no further action is required.   If not, the information should be given to the business credit reporting agency and the agency should be asked to report it for the business.    If this is not done, the snapshot of any company’s business credit report at the business credit reporting agency will be underrepresented and may hinder their ability to obtain financing or as much financing as they wish to obtain.   The process of the business credit reporting agency reporting updated accounts may take a few weeks.

The reports should be checked once a week to determine if the business credit file has been updated.   Until it has been updated, the loan, lease, or leaseback documentation taken out at the time of the transaction should be provided in lie of the report.

Leaseback – What percent against computer equipment?

When a business is considering a leaseback, what percent of the value of the computer equipment will the loan typically be for?

In a leaseback transaction, the owner of equipment sells the asset for cash and leases it back, obtaining working capital. When the transaction involves computer equipment, the percentage obtained against the asset will typically be lower than for other equipment. The percentage will vary depending upon other factors such as time in business, business credit, personal credit and the amount of the request.

Get a leaseback on computer equipment now by calling Toll Free: 855-787-1113 today, or simply complete the “contact us” form in the menu bar above and representative will contact you!

The percentage loaned against the asset in a leaseback will range from 20% to 80%. Computer equipment depreciates in value very quickly. After only 1 year, the equipment may often be worth only 75% of the original value, sometimes less. This is a significant drop.

While the technology is almost always important in a leaseback, the technology needs of other types of equipment will usually not be as great. This includes restaurant equipment, construction equipment, machinery, and vehicles.

The quick drop in value has consequences that do not happen as severely with other types of assets in a leaseback. Because the value drops so much so quickly, if any party is forced to sell the equipment after 1 or 2 years, the market for selling this equipment becomes difficult because the technology updates so rapidly.

Since technology requirements are such a significant part of the reason updated computer equipment is purchased, buyers of computer equipment, especially businesses, may not be motivated by the price difference. A higher priority for businesses will often be the technology that allows their business to function as efficiently as possible. Businesses need to offer their customers the best service. Businesses also need to be up to date against their competition and preferably, have an advantage over their competition.

Due to this, in a leaseback loan transaction, they will likely be offered a low percentage against this type of equipment due to the difficulty and lower return in the event the equipment has to be sold.

Will Supercommittee cuts affect small business?

The supercommittee was established in the aftermath of the debt ceiling debacle to recommend solutions to the federal budget deficit. It’s due to report recommendations by November 22nd.   Will it’s recommendations affect small businesses?

The answer is most certainly yes and indications are it appears the expected decision by the supercommittee certainly affect businesses in a negative way in the short and medium term.

The supercommitte has to decide whether to recommend just spending cuts, or a combination of spending cuts and higher revenues, a euphemism for higher taxes.   If the supercommittee provides recommendations that are heavy or solely cuts,  expect steep cuts to major government programs in the next few years.     This will have to include cuts to major programs such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, NASA,  and defense, if the reason for the existence of the supercommittee and it’s goals are to  be met.   It will have to result in cuts to many smaller programs such as farm programs, the small business administration, the department of Transportation, and others.    This will affect small businesses in many ways.

Medicare / Medicaid –   Many physicians accept Medicare and Medicaid patients.     When Medicare and Medicaid are cut, both programs will likely be forced to lower the reimbursement rate to doctors seeking reimbursement for services they have already provided to their customers.    This will further cut into the profits of medical practices, lowering their gross receipts and profit margins.     Many physicians may feel that they cannot run a profitable enough business.   This will result in many physicians and medical practices discontinuing to accept Medicare and Medicaid patients, or discontinue accepting new Medicare and Medicaid patients.

Defense and NASA – If the defense department is significantly cut due to the recommendations of the supercommittee, it will have a major affect on many businesses across the country. In addition to the large defense contractors,  there are thousands of smaller contractors that work with the larger contractors.   There are even smaller companies that contract with these smaller contractors.   Many more businesses derive their revenue simply by being located in the area of the largest contractors.    Businesses such as restaurants, gas stations and retail shops will all take a hit.  The defense department is at the top of the food chain and any changes have long tailed effects.  With a budget in the $700 billion range, a $100 billion or $200 billion dollar cut can have a major affect on the economy.

Other programs –   Other cuts by the supercommittee may affect the Small Business Administration, farm programs, the department of transportation, the department of education, and a long list of programs.

The mainstream perception is that there is major pressure on the supercommittee to cut spending, and that doing so is a good thing.  There has been very little discussion of how it will affect the economy.     Long term effects of a lower budget deficit will be positive 5 to 10 years out.    However, cutting spending in the short and medium term, as outlined above, will negatively affect many businesses.    Revenues will be lower, contracts will be cut, businesses that are indirect recipients of the government programs will see lower sales as the businesses they feed off of have lower revenues.

In short, spending cuts by the supercommittee means less money to businesses, regardless of the issue whether the government has been overspending or not.

A –  The SBA (small business administration) may get hit with cuts along with the many other non defense programs.   Small businesses are having a very difficult time now getting loans from banks.    If the SBA loan programs are cut back in funding, businesses will have even fewer options than they had before.

B – Farm Programs –  Currently, farmers and businesses related to farming sometimes need government programs to assist them during times of droughts,  early frosts and other times of crop destruction.    Reductions in these programs will put farmers and related industries under greater pressure and more farmers may  be forced out of business.

C – The department of Transportation – New highway construction programs, highway repair, rail programs such as Amtrack, funds for building and updating shipping ports will all take a hit if the department of transportation is cut.
