If you need to borrow money for your business, you must use funds intended for that purpose and not a personal credit facility. This is because the rules around corporate lending are different to those around personal lending. The criteria is more strict and you’ll usually have to prove to the lender how your business is performing.
Interest rates are usually higher on corporate loans and mortgages than on personal credit products, and loans are sometimes secured if they’re for equipment or something similar.
Commercial mortgages can be used for:
- Buying property
- Investment finance
- Property development
- Refurbishing owner-occupied business premises
Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
There are advantages though, as most business loans and mortgages won’t affect your personal credit file or be taken into account if you need to take out a personal loan or credit card. However, if you’re asked to be a guarantor, you’ll be personally liable for the debt and other lenders might include this when looking at your credit file.
