18 Business Loan Requirements – The Different Entity Types

8 – Business Entity Type

Whenever you are applying for any business loan product, you need to be prepared to provide documentation regarding what type of business entity yours is. There are four principal categories: sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company (LLC), and corporation. The lender needs to know exactly how your company is organized as this can certainly help to determine the best possible financing route for you.

While generally most lenders, particularly alternative and online lenders, will work with any one of the above, there are circumstances under which some institutions may not be able to provide financial help to sole proprietorships and/or a partnership. LLCs and corporations simply provide a better means of protection if the business should incur any sort of legal trouble.
If in fact, yours is a corporation or LLC, the lender will ask about the state of incorporation and will most likely ask to see the articles of incorporation along with any other such certificates/articles you might have in your possession. It can certainly help the process along if you have ready access to all of these files. And if you are a sole proprietorship or partnership, you still have a good chance of procuring funding through a variety of sources.
