Funding Your Future Business

Finance options most commonly can include 401K rollovers (ROBS program), SBA loans, Signature or Unsecured loans, or HELOC (Home Equity Lines of Credit). Each has its own advantages and disadvantages and the folks at FranFund will help you figure out which is the right option for you.

Here’s an overview of these funding methods including pros and cons and typical requirements for each.

401k Rollovers

While we typically refer to them as 401k rollovers this type of funding can be achieved from a number of different retirement investment accounts. 401k rollovers allow you to invest up to 100% of your retirement funds into your own business without paying any early withdrawal penalties or taxes and are an extremely popular method for franchise funding.

This can also help you meet cash injection qualifications for other funding sources such as SBA and unsecured loans. 401k rollovers can offer several advantages, including less debt which accelerates profitability, immediate salary for owners, employee benefits and more. They can be secured in as little as a few weeks.

There are several reasons why it’s better to use your 401k vs. savings or taking out a loan. First, the money in the 401k is pre-tax dollars. The money coming out of savings is after-tax dollars. And, if you opt for a loan, you’ll repay the loan with interest. Not so with a 401k rollover. Another good point is that using a 401k is great for an exit strategy: when the business is sold, all of the proceeds roll back into a retirement plan and aren’t taxed until distribution.

Unsecured Loans

Often referred to as a “signature loan” an unsecured loan is simply a loan that’s extended to a borrower based on their good credit and requires no collateral. Typically to qualify for an unsecured loan a borrower will need a minimum credit score of 700, have no derogatory credit statements and have less than 40% use of current credit accounts such as credit cards and other lines of credit. Unsecured loans can be secured in as little as two weeks.

SBA Loans

While the SBA (Small Business Administration) does not actually provide loans they’ll offer a loan guarantee on up to 90% of the loan to qualified borrowers making the loan more attractive and less risky to the actual lender. SBA loans can be a great method for funding your franchise. Most SBA loans can be secured within 60-90 days.

Home Equity Lines of Credit

Home equity lines of credit can be a relatively low-cost method of funding your franchise. Home equity lines will typically cost 1%-3% of the value of your home with interest rates ranging from 5%-10% depending on your credit. A home equity line can be established in 30-60 days.
