What are the costs involved in a business loan?

There are two primary cost factors involved in a business loan - the interest and the fees which the borrower has to pay while availing the loan. The interest is an additional sum of money which has to be paid by the borrower to the lender and the additional fees paid by the borrower is known as the 'processing fees'.

What is a loan processing fee?

A loan processing fee or a loan application fee is the amount paid by the borrower to the lender for processing a loan application. It is an upfront cost that is paid by the borrower for the paperwork involved in the process. Usually, banks/other financial institutions charge a fee of 2.5-3% on the principal amount for processing a loan application. This fee is non-refundable in nature and it is a one-time cost.

A business loan comes with plenty of benefits but at the same time involves a few costs as well. These costs are to be undertaken by the borrower for the services granted by the lender. The processing fees for any loan application is usually deducted from the total loan amount initially. Following the disbursement, the borrower is liable to pay the EMIs which occur at a monthly interval and include repayment of your principal and the interest amount. You can walk into the nearest branch of your bank or enquire online about the costs that are involved in availing a business loan and accordingly plan on how much you want to apply for.
