Are you shopping for business financing? If so, before you get started, you should calculate your debt-service coverage ratio. A debt coverage ratio helps you see how much cash you have to service debt. It will give you an idea of the loan amount, and interest, your business can afford, so you don’t go to a lender and ask for too much. It is a great way to gain perspective on your loan options, as well as ensure you are not taking on more debt than your business can handle. If you’re not actually sure what your loan will cost you, try using a business loan calculator first.
