Last updated:  

Get flexible finance for your business with a line of credit from $50K-$500K

Getting the right finance for your business can be tricky. With trade fluctuations, maintaining a healthy cash flow can be difficult. And you don't want to end up borrowing too much or too little.

That's where a business line of credit could help. A business line of credit allows you access to a credit limit from which you can draw down, but you only pay for what you borrow.

With a Heritage Bank Business Line of Credit, you could get access to a credit limit as high as $500,000 at a competitive rate, and with low fees. Find out more about a Heritage Bank Business Line of Credit below.

How does a line of credit from Heritage Bank work?

Like most business lines of credit, Heritage Bank's business line of credit gives you access to funding that you can draw down from. You can use a line of credit much like you would a business bank account – or more accurately – an overdraft. However, unlike an overdraft, a business line of credit has a much higher credit limit.

With a Heritage Bank business line of credit, you can apply to extend your credit limit at any time. You can also request to have the credit limit reduced. Ways in which you can draw down from your line of credit include using a card attached to your account, BPAY, drawing personal cheques from your account and more.

You will need to make monthly repayments towards your outstanding balance. Please note that the interest rate you'll pay and your loan term will be partly determined by the type of security that you provide.
