Money is worth more if it comes with good advice

Day 4. November 2020 posted Start:up Slovenija

Turbulent times have brought with them a lot of uncertainty, but at the same time new challenges and considerations about how to proceed. The current situation can be a great opportunity for those who will be able to adapt to new market conditions and also for those who will have the courage to start their own business. In recent years, NLB Bank has enthusiastically followed the entrepreneurial stories of individuals who have managed to create a stable company in a short period of time.


It is no secret that the most difficult are the very first beginnings, accompanied by many unknowns and inexperience, which leads to several mistakes, and an additional problem is the lack of trust that has yet to be built. Complications can already arise with the company status. The NLB warns that it is not just a question of legal status, tax and accounting differences, as novice entrepreneurs often overlook the fact that a sole proprietorship can pose a greater risk to suppliers than a limited liability company and will therefore set more difficult payment terms and may even require advance payments.


Information and knowledge to get started

In the beginning, it is difficult for banks to help entrepreneurs with loans, as they can only provide limited financial support to start-ups. However, they can provide them with the knowledge and information that is essential for them at their first business steps.


Banks help entrepreneurs to meet the challenges of starting a business, warn them of risks and suggest solutions. A somewhat more critical view, which a bank advisor can offer you, is often necessary for a successful business, because this way you can avoid fatal mistakes.



The right advice in all life cycles of a company

Not only during the establishment and start-up of the company, but also later in the growth and development phases, as well as during the transformation or sale of the company, bank advisors will provide you with expert advice. However, they emphasize that it is important to come to the bank already at the project planning phase, when certain business factors can be optimized.
