Business Lines of Credit

Our business lines of credit give you the flexibility to borrow what you need when you need it, to help your cash flow. Unlike a term or equipment loan, lines of credit help to cover the unexpected. Having one in place means your business is prepared for whatever may happen, whether it’s a chance to buy inventory at reduced prices or an unforeseen expense. With a line of credit in place, it will be business as usual despite the obstacles and opportunities that may come along.

Common Uses of Business Lines of Credit

  • Covering cash shortfalls during the "ramp up" period of a seasonal business
  • Paying for expenses before a job is completed and payment is received
  • Taking advantage of reduced prices for inventory or materials
  • Making smaller equipment purchases, like a new computer
  • Bridging a gap between when your bills are due and when you receive payments from your customers
  • Being able to move quickly on auction items - you can then refinance larger purchases into term loans to keep your line available for the next opportunity
