There are no hard and fast rules about how long to wait to apply for small business financing if you’ve applied in the past; however, your business circumstances may be the best determination of how long you choose to wait. For example, if you applied for small business financing previously and decided to build or improve credit since then, it’s advised you wait 6 months before applying again. If you already have a small business loan or other financing and are considering additional financing, know that there’s no limit to the number of small business loans your business can have at once.
