Line of Credit: Flexible Funding That’s Always at Hand
Small business lines of credit are a popular form of business financing due to their flexibility. If approved, you will receive a credit limit. You can then decide how much you would like deposited into your business’ bank account, up to your maximum credit limit. As you make payments, that money becomes available to draw again — without the need to reapply. This form of revolving credit allows you to have working capital on hand whenever you need it.
Small Business Lines of Credit Through Headway Capital
Taking out a line of credit through our partner Headway Capital can help your small business meet financing needs now and in the future. Reliable access to funds allows you to purchase inventory, cover payroll or take a chance on a business opportunity.
With a business line of credit, each time you request a draw, you will select the amount to borrow (up to your available credit limit) along with a repayment term. Once complete, your entire outstanding balance is re-amortized. You will always only have one payment at a time and you will only pay interest on the funds you’ve drawn from your line.
Daily Interest to Help You Pay Less
The revolving line of credit offered through our partner Headway Capital charges daily interest rather than monthly. This means that interest accrues on a customer’s outstanding principal balance on a daily basis. If a customer pays off the line of credit balance early, interest no longer accrues since there is no balance. This can help business owners save money over the lifetime of their business line of credit because they won’t be paying interest on days when the balance is zero. When showing our interest rates, we convert them to monthly so you can more easily compare our rates to others.

FAQ About Business Lines of Credit
Business lines of credit are different than business credit cards primarily in how lines of credit can be used as cash. If certain vendors won’t accept credit cards, or impose fees for credit card use, a line of credit comes in handy. With a line of credit, you can pay bills via check or cash. It can also give you money on hand if you don’t have a sufficient amount of available credit through credit cards.
A non-revolving line of credit can’t be used again after it’s paid off. The primary advantage these have are typically lower interest rates and a better ability to manage risk. However, they don’t offer the flexibility and ongoing financial support of revolving lines of credit.
It all depends on your business’s financial needs. A business loan can be great for larger expenses that require money up front. A line of credit is better for ongoing access to working capital. Check out our Small Business Loans if you think a business loan might be better for you.
