If you applied within the last 3 months for a small business loan and you were rejected, wait before you re-apply and seek help.
When lenders are making a lending decision, they assess your application based on many different factors, including:
- your credit history
- your business plan
- your sector
- your financials and cash flows
- your repayment history.
Discover some common reasons why lenders reject small business loan applications and how to correct them.
Many lenders have a cooling-off period, so if you’ve applied within the last 3 months and were rejected, they won’t allow you to re-apply until at least 3 months have gone by. Other lenders will want to see that you have been able to significantly improve your cash flows or repayment history over a period of time. So, they may want to wait to see a 6-month positive track record post a rejection. The worst thing you can do is to apply to too many lenders in a short period of time and get rejected because this will degrade your credit score and reduce your chances of getting a loan in the future.
