I'm often asked why would a business opt for an advance against their total monthly credit card or bank deposits instead of getting an unsecured loan which may have a lower cost of funds?
Here are just a few scenarios where our Merchant Cash Advance (MCA)is sometimes the right answer for many businesses vs. more traditional business loans:
The Business owner has too many loans outstanding, so his/her debt-to-income ratios just don't fit the criteria most unsecured lenders need to do a deal. For any number of reasons, the owners FICO score has taken a recent dive. The Business has Tax or Creditor liens on his/her personal credit report. The Business and/or owner(s) had a very recent bankruptcy proceeding, that may be closed but lenders want to see more time go by. The Business is brand new and has only been in operation for a few months. Business is in a category that many lenders consider high risk or exclude all together.
The Business owners are young and inexperienced. The Business owners are in the process of refinancing all their outstanding debt into one new larger business loan. They need additional FUNDS for their business while the loan is still underwritten and not yet approved. The Merchant Cash Advance (MCA) is NOT a loan or an outstanding liability on the company’s balance sheet, so the Capital obtained through this type of advanced funding will not interfere with their current planned consolidation.
