How does a commercial loan work?
Commercial finance is an umbrella term for different kinds of business loans. They’re designed to help manage your capital and cash flow.
Examples of commercial finance
Business overdraft: Your financial institution allows you to overdraw your existing business account up to an approved limit. You can only access the overdraft after your own funds have been used. The lender charges interest on the overdrawn amount. Businesses often use overdrafts as small loans, usually to cover cash flow gaps.
Line of credit: A long-term arrangement between a business and a lender, where the business can access funds up to an approved limit. The business may borrow all or part of the money at any time, but only owes interest and makes repayments on the amount used. Accessibility and flexibility are key here.
Term loans: A business borrows money and repays the lender in set amounts over a set period. Good for businesses that like predictable repayments.
Commercial rate loans: Also known as business markets loans. A business borrows a single loan amount, which can be spread across a combination of components, such as floating rates, fixed rates and cap rates. This helps to protect against interest rate movements.
