Next steps when your business has already been declined
If one of the reasons your business is declined for a business loan request is your business checking account being overdrawn, it will be harder to get approved in the next 15 to 30 days. Many funding companies do not want to fund to a business that is overdrawn or has just been overdrawn on their business checking account. The minimum balance they want to see is at least $500, even if your account does not go overdrawn. Lenders like to see the average daily balance of the business checking account to be $2,000 or more.
The lender may tell you they will re-consider your request once your account has been in the positive for 30 days. You can do this, but most businesses do not want to wait. What can you do?
Apply with another lender
This may be your best choice if the account is now in the positive and the lender will not re-consider the request for 30 days. In this case, choose another lender and apply. If your account is still overdrawn it is best to wait until you can get it positive. Lenders will not fund if they verify balances and learn the account is overdrawn.
