Tree Servicing requires large sums of money upfront or in advance which may not be possible without proper financing arrangements.
To qualify for a line of credit, your tree service company should have demonstrated profitability on the most recent filed business tax return. This showcases your ability to afford payments after drawing funds from the line of credit. Even if your last tax return shows net losses, you may still be eligible.
Certain expenses (non-taxables) on the return can be "added back" to the net profit amount, bringing your business to a qualifying requirement.
Examples of expenses that may be added back in are certain interest paid on borrowed money and depreciation expense incurred by use of equipment or real estate owned by company's members other than owner/officer/partner who is requesting loan.
