        • Your business plan & accounts
        • Your business cashflow, profitability and existing commitments
        • Any personal financial commitments that affect the business
        • How you have handled your finances in the past
        • Information held by credit agencies

    @simonmurrison
  • 12. How to Approach the bank for funding

  • 13. How to Approach the bank for funding
      • Show confidence
        • If you don’t believe in your request then why should the bank fund it
        • Be prepared to show your commitment – if you are not prepared to then the bank will not do so either
        • Think about getting your accountant to present the numbers
        • When the client meets the bank the numbers should already have been in principle agreed
        • Client will in general then only talk about their product rather than finances
        • Client in comfort zone
