Why Banks May Not Be The Best Option for Fast Business Funding

There are many reasons why a business owner like you may need a small business loan fast.

For example, a competitor may be winding things down and offer you a chance to pick up some of their inventory at a fraction of the cost. Or perhaps you’ve heard through a trusted source that you’re the preferred vendor for a huge (and hugely profitable!) project, and the only thing that’s holding you back is that you aren’t using a specific – and somewhat pricey – project management software solution. Or maybe you’re at risk of becoming the “best kept secret” in your marketplace, and want to launch a targeted marketing campaign to connect with new customers. In any of these cases, a fast business loan is essential for the growth of your business.

Regardless of your reason or reasons, the fact is that you need a small business loan fast. And so, you may think that the next logical step is to contact your bank, right? Think again!

The Bank Business Loan Application Maze

Several years ago, applying for a small business loan from banks was a relatively quick process. That’s not to say it was ever fast, but it wasn’t prohibitively slow.

However, since the Great Recession in 2008, banks have re-invented the small business loan application process. Fast business loans simply aren’t available at banks anymore.

That’s because the application process takes MONTHS to wind its way through the bank’s maze, going from loan officer to loan officer to loan officer. In fact, it’s not uncommon for some Small Business Administration loans (which are facilitated in conjunction with banks) to go through more than more people than you could imagine during the application process!

What’s more, it’s not as if the process is a “set it and forget” it one. There are a multitude of documents that must be provided to the bank along with the application – everything from business plans, tax returns, P/L statements, resumes and more. If these documents are deemed to be incorrect or incomplete (and applicants should expect either or both to be the case), then they’ll have to submit updated documents; which further delays the application process.

As you can see, fast business loans is not really an option if you’re going the route of traditional bank loans. Banks have become more selective on the risk that they assume, and so imposing an incredibly long and convoluted application process is one of the ways they demonstrate this mandate.
