Security for business and commercial loans

Like a home loan, your business or commercial finance loan will need security. This might include:

  • Residential property
  • Commercial property
  • Assets of your business such as stock
  • Guarantee of directors supported by residential/commercial property
  • Commercial loan borrowing power

With lending criteria tightening, the knowledge and experience of a good commercial loan specialist is invaluable. Commercial loan specialists play an important role in getting your finance.

The amount you can borrow is on a case-by-case basis. A good commercial loan specialist can help work out your borrowing capacity based on criteria like the industry you're in and the type of security you have.

Generally, your borrowing capacity is worked out as what's known as an 'interest coverage ratio'. This is your company's earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT), divided by interest expense. Interest expense is a ratio used to work out how easily you can pay interest on outstanding debt.

A business loan secured by cash flow, partly secured by property, or a combination of both, may need an interest cover of three times or more.
