Good Debt vs. Bad Debt

Borrowing money makes financial sense in some conditions, but not in all. You may have heard that debt is divided into two categories: good debt and bad debt. Money owed for anything that can promote the increase of value or improve income over time is classified as “good” debt. Payment systems and other financial commitments are examples of “bad” debt that would not do much to help your company's financial situation.


Good Debt

Good debt allows you to leverage your wealth, acquire what you need and deal with future contingencies. This could be for a variety of reasons. For example, paying for modifications to comply with newly imposed rules and regulations, growing your team or to improve your facilities. However, the question is, what does the debt do for you - are you getting back more than you put in. If the debt helps you generate income or grow your business, then this can be considered to be a good debt.

Bad Debt

Bad debt occurs when money is borrowed to purchase a depreciating item that will not increase in value or create any revenue. It is a bad debt if it drops in value the instant you acquire it. Any loan that has the potential to damage the future net value of your company should be kept away from.
