To avail a business loan, your financial history should be sound.
You need to evaluate your credit history and your personal records. At the same time, obtaining a business tax ID from IRS.gov and maintaining a good FICO score would be good.
To show your lenders that you have keen interest in your plan, you should invest your money, portraying that not just their money is on risk but you are also willing to put your savings on risk. To prove this, you must open a checking account and transfer your funds into the dedicated account linked with your new tax ID number.
Your potential lenders need to be certain of the fact that you have adequate equity to handle majority of your loan that you wish to finance. For this, you need to form a list of all your assets along with the income tax returns of last five years.
You should also provide them the evidence of your recent business dealings, showing the risk that you have taken in the past years and your ability to handle that. This can be proved by providing them your financial data including balance sheets in conjunction with profit and loss statements.
Keep in mind that your personal history plays an important role in all this because when lenders look at the potential borrowers they want to be certain that they are trustworthy and their investment will be secured.
