Various lenders offer business loans at varied interest rates. Before applying for the business loan one should compare the interest rates, processing fees and other charges with the available lenders in the market.

Business loans are available at interest rates which can be of two types—Flat rate of interest and Reducing rate of interest:

Flat rate of interest – These kind of interest rate is calculated on the full loan amount during its tenure. 

For example : A loan amount is availed by an applicant of Rs 1,00,000 at a flat rate of interest at 10% p.a for a tenure of 5 years. He will have to pay Rs 20,000 which is the principal repayment for the amount of (1,00,000/5) + Rs 10,000—interest at 10% of this 1,00,000 is equal to a total of Rs 30,000 per year. Over the tenure of the loan, the borrower will end up paying Rs 1,50,000 that is (2,500*12*5).

Reducing rate of interest - The interest calculation for the following month is done on the outstanding amount of loan. The EMI comprises interest rate which is payable for outstanding amount of loan for each month with the principal of repayment. The loan amount gets reduced, after each monthly installment. It is calculated each month on the remaining loan amount. 

Smooth running of business requires funds at regular intervals. Requirement may be big or small and accordingly an applicant avails loan to cater to his business needs.
