If you work in the legal field, it is highly likely that you’ll need to take out business loans at some point. Before you do, take the time to find out what your options are so that you can choose the best one for your situation. 

Loan Types

When it comes to bank loans, you may have to jump through many hoops to qualify for one. However, you will likely pay lower interest rates than you would on other types of business loans. 

SBA

Taking an SBA loan means that you are limited in the ways you can use it. Many policies don’t let you spend the loan money on refinancing your business debt. You can generally use it on working capital, real estate, and any equipment that you need in order to do your job. 

Short Term

In the event that your law firm is in its early days, you may be able to qualify for a short-term loan. These are generally extended to businesses that haven’t yet established good credit. If you take a short-term loan, keep in mind that the interest rates are likely to be high.

 Credit

Getting a line of credit for your business is another solution. Not only does this help you build your business credit, it means you can pay for any expenses that may come up in the future that you couldn’t afford on your own. By obtaining the right business credit card, you may gain access to rewards for using your card responsibly. It’s worth noting that any business credit card should be paid in full each month.

Financing

Last but not least, invoice financing is another way to fund your business. Though you’ll have to pay fees on the money, you’ll be able to get a loan against however much your invoices are worth.

 Applying For Business Loans

To apply for business loans you’ll need to provide basic information about it as well as about yourself. Decisions on business loans are usually made immediately, and you may even have the money within one day.
