How is a business line of credit different from other financing solutions?

A business line of credit is a type of loan where the company can withdraw money on an ongoing basis, use it for the business, repay freely and then withdraw money again when needed. It is one of several flexible options on the financing market today.

How does a business line of credit work?

The easiest way to think of business credit is that it is like a business loan that can be automatically renewed. You can withdraw money from the credit limit several times a year, which makes it well suited to cover unexpected costs. Many companies also use the company credit as a safety buffer to ensure liquidity during peak season.

Business credit vs. overdraft for companies

The company credit is not linked to an account

The limit for an overdraft can be changed at any time

It is more common with business credit for limited companies, as owners of individual companies may already have a private overdraft.

The limit for a business credit can be higher and can therefore also be used for investments, for example new employees.

Business credit vs. Business loans

The repayment of the business loan follows a clear amortization plan.

With a business loan, you can determine repayments on an ongoing basis.

Business credit vs. Credit cards

You do not get a card with a business credit, instead the limit is paid out to your business account

The interest rate and fees for business credit are lower compared to business credit cards

Some business loans have a card linked to the credit. So there is an opportunity to combine the benefits of a credit card with a business loan.

What are the benefits of a business credit?

If you are the owner of a growing business and want some flexibility, a business credit is usually a suitable solution.

Business credits are not only a good solution for short-term liquidity, or as a safety buffer. The credit is also very flexible, fast and can help your business grow. Here we go through the main pros and cons of business loans.

What interest rate is common for a business line?

Corporate loans from major banks usually have a premium over the central bank rate of 6%. This means that the interest rate on business credits currently starts at around 10% per year. Some lenders offer more flexible solutions that are often only used for a short time and in these cases the interest rate is set monthly and is around 1-3% per month.

About business credit for businesses

About business credit for businesses

How much does a business credit cost?

A business credit usually has an arrangement fee and 2 different interest charges: fixed annual fee (contractual interest rate) and interest on the utilized credit amount (disposition interest). Some banks and lenders, on the other hand, have chosen not to include a set-up fee linked to the business credit.

  • Contract interest is the fixed fee for the maximum credit amount for which the company has been approved. In other words, the fee increases the higher the maximum amount that you have been granted.
  • Disposition interest is the interest for the actual utilized credit amount. This is often fixed, but can also be variable with some banks and lenders.

As with other forms of financing, the interest rate that you are offered by the bank or lender largely depends on your company's creditworthiness.

Business credit with/without personal guarantees

Most often, traditional and niche banks require a business mortgage as collateral. The company then pledges movable assets, such as accounts receivable and inventory as collateral. Usually, a personal guarantee is required when applying for a business credit. The more collateral you add, the more favorable interest rate you can usually be offered.

  • Loan: 0.5m

We are growing faster than expected, and our business webshop (www.willbrand.se) needed an uplift, while we also needed to prepay the production for two significant fall projects.

At Krea, it surprisingly works quickly, and you receive a pleasant and good treatment from their service personnel. The process was significantly smoother compared to the old-fashioned 'banking world'."

We are embarking on a major expansion, opening two new restaurants. Krea's advisors helped us find the right financing, allowing us to focus on the expansion. It was time-efficient, and by having Krea compete with different banks, we also ensured favorable terms for the new financing.
