Loan types available in Dallas.

Dallas prides itself on being a friend to small businesses—there is no local sales tax nor does Texas collect business income taxes. The city is now a regional hub for conferences and tourism, and its economy has been thriving for years, plus it has some of the lowest cost-of-living expenses of any major American city. Used with an eye toward growth, a small business loan can help your company leverage Dallas’ excellent economy for your own success.

SBA Loans

A Small Business Administration (SBA) loan is a business loan partially guaranteed by the government via the SBA, but serviced by a private lender. They are popular with entrepreneurs because the interest rates are often relatively low, but the application process can be strenuous.

Line of Credit

Functioning almost like a credit card, a business line of credit allows your business to make purchases on credit and pay back your balance later.

Term Loan

A term loan is a very standard business loan, where a lender disburses your company a lump sum that you repay every month, plus any interest and fees, over many years.

Equipment Finance

If you finance equipment, your operation can use the equipment while you pay down the price of the machinery in installments.

Accounts Receivable Financing

To qualify for accounts receivable financing, you use unpaid invoices owed to your company as collateral for a business loan equal to or less than the amount of the invoices.
