Commercial lending, or commercial loan is a debt-based funding arrangement between a business, rather than an individual client, and a financial institution such as a bank. It is a source of capital and covers operational costs that the company is unable to pay.
Commercial lending is often secured by a real estate (house, building, factory, etc.) or a movable property (machine, car, truck, etc.), called collateral on which the bank can foreclose in case of default or bankruptcy. Mortgage on real estate is one of the forms of commercial lending.
The procedure of a commercial lending requires documentation generally in the form of balance sheets and other similar financial documents proving that the company has a positive and consistent cash flow. This assures the bank that the loan can and will be repaid according to its terms, so as to avoid bad debts as much as possible.
Besides requisite requirements provided by laws, commercial banks in Vietnam may have different procedures to apply for a commercial lending. It is recommended you consulting a reputable commercial bank, or a banking lawyer before seeking for a financial support from a commercial bank.
