Every Bar Business has to seek funding at some point or other. Funding your startup business or securing the cash to grow your established Bar Business can be a tricky, slow, operation; and you still may not locate or get the funding that your business needs. Obtaining the proper funding under any circumstances can be challenging, whether you are looking for start-up finances, capital to grow, or money to help you during the difficult times.
- The main source of funding for Bar Businesses are banks and credit unions. The most common source of financial backing is the owner, but traditional sources such as banks and credit unions are next. That means your local bank is a decent place to start your search for funding for your Bar Business.
- Grants for a Bar Business are few and far between. There are very few small business grants about and most of the grants that do exist highlight certain groups, projects, or even regions of the country. However, there appears to be plenty of grants available for Bar Businesses that can be coupled with the arts, science, recruitment, or to environmental issues.
- You need to develop a strong Bar Business Plan. There is, without any doubt, no way around this and no shortcuts; any financial institution that may think about financing your organization will want to look at your Bar Business Plan. This should build in your numbers, such as your revenue statement, cash flow projections and a balance sheet.
- There has to be something in it for your lender. Your Bar Business Plan has to reflect this. If you are attempting to acquire funding, then it is self-evident that the lender will get a percentage rate of interest on their money. A few financiers may want more involvement, asking for an ownership percentage or at least involvement in the way your Bar Business is run. When you are developing your companies funding proposal you should be aware of the kind of lender that you are trying to attract and tailor your Bar Business Plan correspondingly to accommodate their needs and answer their questions.
- You need to be prepared to contribute financially. Assets are a big plus, principally assets that lenders will view as security, but making a financial contribution may be necessary to procure the funding that you are hoping for. Most government sponsored loans and grants are contingent on an applicant contribution, commonly of a set percentage of the financing being asked for.
- The size and age of your Bar Business matters. The size of your venture matters in regard to how much your funding will cost. If you are searching for a loan for your company from a bank or a credit union, you are far more likely to pay a fixed interest rate greater than 1.5% above the prime rate if you are asking for a smaller loan (under $100,000) especially if you have sales of under $500,000. You are also probably more likely to pay these higher rates if you have a Bar Business with less than 20 members of staff and / or you have less than 10 years of suitable experience.
- Bar Businesses many a time have an appreciably harder time getting funded than businesses in other sectors. You are at a disadvantage as starting a Bar Business is considered to be more of a risk than organizations in other markets.
- You are your Bar Business from a financial point of view. Any issues with your own financial history, like lousy credit or a shortage of assets, may stop you getting funding altogether. It is very important that you try to straighten out your own financial report, like restoring your credit rating, before attempting to secure financing for your business, albeit there is some funding for those who do not have flawless credit ratings. If you do not have a credit history or collateral as a result of a divorce, because you are a recent migrant or because you are too young, or if you have a poor credit rating as a result of repayment difficulties, you may still find an investor that is ready to lend your business the money you need.
- There are some specific funds available principally for women. There are some types of financing allocated especially for assisting women to open and expand their Bar Business. If you are a woman seeking to start a Bar Business, or grow an existing small business, loans are available; and even the occasional grant.
- You do not need a fortune to start a Bar Business. If you are searching for a start up loan, think about how you could downsize your plan or split it into pieces so that you are able to get your company open without a large infusion of third-party funding.
Some typical startup costs facing new business owners include:
- Electronic equipment: computer, printer, scanner, photocopier, etc.
