Why is it important to obtain a private loan to start as a freelancer?

It is important to have enough funds to start as a freelancer. This will allow you to cover initial costs such as the costs of setting up your business, advertising costs, rental costs and general start-up costs. If you do not have enough funds, you may find yourself quickly short of cash from the start. This could therefore hinder your ability to develop your business according to your objectives.

Make your request before becoming independent!

get a private loan

It is always better to apply for a private loan before becoming self-employed for several reasons. First, banks are often more inclined to grant a loan to someone who still has a stable wage income. Secondly, if you wait until you are independent to apply for a loan, you risk finding yourself without income for the first few months. This will therefore make impossible to get a loan.

Indeed, once your independent status has been obtained, the private loan solution will only be possible after at least 2 years of activity. This, as long as you are able to justify a sufficiently high income. Which is often not the case when you start your activities as a freelancer. In addition, it is important to know that the banks will take into account your income indicated in your tax assessment and not your turnover. This can therefore greatly reduce your borrowing capacity.

Obtaining a private loan is a kind of preventive guarantee

It is important to know that according to the consumer credit law (LCC), borrowers have the right to prepay consumer credit at any time. Whether partially or fully, without having to pay any prepayment charges. This means that if a borrower wishes to repay his private credit before the end of the period provided for in the contract, he will not be subject to fees or penalties for this early repayment.

Therefore, once you have been able to obtain a private loan, you will be free to prepay without penalty. This therefore represents a big advantage for starting your activity as a self-employed person with sufficient cash in case of unforeseen circumstances. If everything goes according to your plans, you can repay your private loan at any time!

How to prepare for an independence project?

Before starting as a freelancer, it is important to prepare accordingly. This includes the writing a business plan detailed and market research to determine the viability of your business. Finding funding to cover initial costs is also very important. Also, make sure you have enough savings to support you for the first few months of your freelance business. It is also important to understand the tax and legal obligations related to the exercise of a self-employed activity in Switzerland.
