First Step Review

Equity is the difference between your business assets and business debts. If you have nothing left over after paying all of your debts of the business, then you have no equity. Generally, lending institutions want to see that the applicant has equity (assets minus debt) of least one half of the organization's total debt, including the loan amount.

Step One:  List all assets. Please enter numerical numbers rounded to nearest dollar and omit punctuation, for example: for $100,000.00, please enter 100000. Make sure you list the assets the loan will provide. For example, if you plan on purchasing a parcel of land with the loan - list it as real estate.
