Things to consider when raising business finance

When raising funds for your business, there are a number of key things that must be accounted for to ensure you get the capital you need while staying within the law and protecting your long-term interests.

 

Where is the finance coming from?

There are many different potential sources of business finance and it is important to explore all of your options and work out which is most appropriate for your business interests. If you borrow from an angel investor, for example, this is likely to come with different conditions than if you borrow from a bank.

 

What terms does the finance come with?

Before signing any commercial finance agreement, you need to be very clear exactly what terms you are agreeing to, including what obligations towards the lender you will be placed under.

 

Business finance contracts can often be long and complicated, so it is strongly recommended to have an experienced business finance lawyer look at the agreement for you before signing.

 

Who is liable for the debt?

Depending on the structure of your business and the terms of the finance agreement you may be personally liable for the debt or the liability may lie solely with your business. This is an absolutely crucial point to understand as you could end up causing yourself serious legal and financial difficulties if you get this wrong.

 

Does the financing support your long-term business goals?

If your business needs an injection of cash, it can be tempting to take the money when someone offers it to you even if the terms of the agreement are unfavourable. However, you need to consider how the financing deal will affect your business long term as failing to do so could simply be storing up problems for later that could leave you in a worse position.
