Refinancing Your Car Wash
There are two major criteria and a number of lesser ones that a bank or
finance company uses to determine the refinancing loan amount.
First, the operating cash flow of the car wash business prior to the
loan payments must exceed the anticipated loan payments by
a comfortable margin. The cash flow is calculated using the the
federal income tax return, the prior federal income tax return, and the
present year-to-date Income (P&L)
Second, the maximum loan size cannot exceed the lender's predetermined
loan-to-value ratio, typically expressed as a percentage, such as 80%.

car wash or car
washes during the most recent income tax year or during the present
year. These situations may require a customized analysis and
are considered on a case-by-case basis.
