Business Loan Documentation Checklist

Thanks for your interest in working with Gateway Bank on your business loan.

This checklist includes all of the documentation you will need to provide with your loan application so we can verify your financial information. We understand this is a lot to gather. Please take your time, and only submit your package once you have all documents. The faster you provide all documentation, the faster we can move forward.

Once we receive your complete package, we will provide an indication of the interest rate you can expect to receive. Your package will be submitted to the Loan Committee for review within 1-10 days.
