Why Do I Need a Credit Application Form?
This document is beneficial for both lender and borrower. While pleading or granting a loan orally might be just as effective and a whole lot easier than drafting a form, an official application form will make sure all the appropriate information is collected and organized. You will need details such as
- the borrower’s references,
- the borrower’s background, and
- the borrower’s credit history.
Having all this in place will also help the lender’s case if and when a debt has to be collected.
For your other credit needs, we have also provided forms that double as a Credit Card Authorization Form. These authorization forms will allow a lender or lending institution to check the card holder’s credit line when the card holder is applying for credit for business purposes.
As a borrower, not keeping track of your credit line will come back to bite you when you make a payment using a credit card. The authorizing bank will be keeping their own records of your credit line, and you need to make sure you are always keep your record in the open to keep yourself accountable and on track.
