The Service Sector Business Loans from private lending institutions can be grouped as follows:

  • Run up capital loans:

The run-up capital loans also called as working capital loans are those that require immediate funds to meet the daily activities of the business. The fund from the loans can be utilized for raw material purchase, overheads such as power or salary disbursement, etc. Also, these loans are required when business types are very fluctuating such as business during particular seasons or having quarterly billing cycle or delay in customer payment and other ad hoc and external factors.

The benefits of run-up capital loans are:

  • The EMI schedule is usually between 1 year and 2 years maximum.
  • There is no security (Unsecured lending) required for lending business loans
  • The interest percentage is competitive

  • Merchant Cash Advance:

A merchant cash advance is famous for the micro, small and medium scale units, as it offers faster disbursal of cash and simple application process. With this type of lending, the aspirant receives a lump sum amount of cash in his account and is used for day to day activities and repaid daily from the revenue generated in the point of sale machines. The case amount is disbursed within 3 days and favorable to those enterprises that generate revenue on a daily basis with the help of point of sale machines.

  • Line of credit (LOC)

This is the type of lending option in which the businessman gets heavy cash credit into is account and is charged only for the amount spent from his credit account. The best example is having a credit card wherein there is credit limit and as we use the card on the point of sale machines and charged some percentage on the amount used and with the monthly limit for repayment. This type of lending is unsecured as there is a credit limit given for spending.

  • Invoice financing:

This is very largely used for the micro, small and medium scale units wherein based on the invoice raised by the business units for the services rendered to their customers. Once the invoice is cleared by the customers the business owner can repay the lump sum amount for which he got the business loans. As there is a gap between the generation of invoice and the clearance business owners rely on the loan to bridge the gap.

In this model of the invoice lending scheme, there is a percentage of the invoice amount upon clearance of the invoice; it includes some processing fee as well for the lender organization.

The Government of India with the help of the Reserve Bank of India is promoting these schemes of business loans lending in the country. They are making efforts to change the previous strenuous ways and to make it simpler, linear and easy ways to access to business loans.
