Line of Credit / Overdraft

Never get caught in an emergency

With a line of credit, you can be assured that you have sufficient cash flow to withstand short term liquidity shocks. Never be caught off guard with an order surge again.

What is the difference between a Line of Credit and a Business Loan?

As the name suggest a line of credit is a facility that is made available to you within a period of time. This means that you have the option to tap on the facility as and when you may require. This is particularly useful when you are not able to ascertain a specific time and amount of funds required. The last thing you want is to sit on borrowed cash, paying interest while not making any use of the funds. A business loan on the other hand is drawndown straight after it is approved with the amount and tenor preset.

When is a Line of Credit useful?

Loan disbursement is typically the same as a business term loan which is unsecured with a maximum loan amount of up to 3x of your monthly cashflow. The key difference is in the flexibility of timing in disbursement. Below are some of the most popular reasons why you should consider having a line of credit. It is also to note that a business term loan and a line of credit are not mutually exclusive, you can have a business term loan and a line of credit for additional cushion when required.

How does it work?

Quite simply, once you draw down on your line of credit, it operates entirely like a business term loan. You will be required to pay interest and principle on a monthly basis through an equal repayment schedule. Here are some of the key terms you should take note:
Interest Rate
Processing Fee
Up to 3x monthly cashflow
Up to 12 months
1% – 3% per month
It is also important to note that while a credit line is pre-approved, there is no commitment from the lender to fully oblige to the drawdown when called upon. This means that there is a risk of the lender cancelling the line when required. Therefore, a line of credit should not be a replacement for a business term loan.
