Why do businesses need Funds?
- Growth of Business (like Purchase of Inventory)
- Short Term Business Expenses
- Purchase of Property or Equipments
- Seasonal Demand
- Blockage of Funds
- Emergency Expenses
When should we borrow?
Simply, When potential Return on Investment outweigh Cost of Debt. Eg. A trader who would like to purchase in bulk but due to insufficient capital could not, would lose to its competitor who purchased in bulk and availed bulk discount and effectively lowered its product cost or increased its profit margin.
So, if return from deployment of loan is higher than cost of loan, it’s preferable to take loan.
