What are the fees involved apart from closing fees in start-up or term loan?
Fees for a startup loan are as follows, and this does not include a business plan:
1.5-3% consulting fee agreement depending on the size of the deal (anything under 1,000,000 is 3%)
We collect this in 3 parts.
1) Retainer -- once we start working on the loan with the customer a small fee will be due upfront $500-$1000 (also depending on size and if the borrower is more liquid this number could go up)
2) Progress payment-- once we obtain a term sheet from a lender we charge the client another set fee. This can be up to 50% of the value of the whole consulting fee
3) The balance is due after funding
What are the complete fees involved in quick loan?
If by quick loan you mean Cash Advances -- We are now trying to sign fee agreements with our clients on these deals. But if there is to much pushback we would waive it. The fees usually come from the lenders on CASH ADVANCE deals. That is the only type of loan where we would not 100% collect from the customer
Does client need to have a collateral when he applies for a loan amount<150000?
The only time they don't need collateral is for an SBA loan, but please don't say that they don't need it, the SBA will take ANY AND ALL collateral available and any conventional loan will require collateral. It is just the only way a bank can do a loan without but they need to have a 25% to put down and
How much Loan amount will client get if he puts down 25%? Suppose client applies for $100,000 & ready to put down $25,000, what approximate Loan Amount will client get?
Will it be $100,000 or $75,000
If the client is looking for a $100,000 he would bring $25,000 and the bank would provide $75,000. The customer would be required to spend their own money first before the bank would disperse the funds. But when going about this loan any money that was spent in the setting up of the business prior to getting the loan can be counted towards their portion of the 25%
