Do CPAs have a role in small business financing?
At Dinkins Financial, we believe the answer is yes, especially in today’s environment.
Lenders of many stripes are vying for revenue opportunities that may result in unhealthy outcomes for small business owners. Help your clients avoid mistakes.
As a financial advisor, you can lead your clients to a safe lender who can help them expand operations, purchase equipment, restructure debt, and much more.
Why your clients need guidance
The most recent Small Business Credit Survey (SBCS), a national collaboration of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks, illustrates financing challenges faced by small business owners in communities across the United States. Here are a few highlights:
Small business owners tended to choose lenders based on their perceived chance of being funded, rather than on what really matters to the business – the cost and terms of the loan.
Approximately 54% of credit applicants did not receive all of the funding they sought, and 23% were declined, receiving no funding at all.
Bank applicants were most dissatisfied with wait times for credit decisions.
Applicants to online lenders were most dissatisfied with high interest rates.
The right lender cares about small business success, fast funding - and increasing financial planning transparency between CPAs and their small business clients.
Nothing is worse for a CPA than realizing your calculations are right and it’s going to be bad news for your small business client. A fellow financial advisor who assists companies with their financing needs can help you circumvent the need for phone calls like that. Read more…
