Small business loans are essential for most businesses from the start - credit lubricates the running of a modern business. Indeed, plenty of small businesses failed during the worst of the credit crisis in 2008, showing how important loans can be, to the survival of a small business.
If you want get hold of finance for your small business, you need to know how the market for getting small business loans stands. You also need to be aware of the providers of small business loans and the prospects for credit supply to pick up. But in addition, given the recent difficulties with securing loans of any sort, it would be sensible to be open to other ways of raising finance.
Small business loans are available from both large and small credit brokers. They can check out loans across a wide spectrum of the market, to find small business loans that may be suitable for you. Small business loans arranged like this will have broker fees applied, and so may be dearer. A bigger concern is that, with the reduction in credit supply heralded by the credit crunch, the number of loans available is much smaller, and terms too onerous - brokers may find it hard to get you an affordable loan.
Principle lenders, who hold capital directly, such as banks, may be better placed to offer you small business loans, because they are the primary source. But you will have to trawl the market yourself to get the best provider and rates. And you may find the same shortage of affordable small business loans that the credit brokers experience.
So what are the prospects for the UK credit over the next year or so? The Bank of England 'Trends in Lending' report, for April 2010, shows a continued decline, of 7.9%, in overall business lending, up until February. And small business loans remain expensive:
"For smaller businesses, the Credit Conditions Survey indicated that spreads on lending had increased somewhat. Contacts of the Bank's network of Agents reported that spreads and fees appeared to have stabilised, albeit at high levels."
