What is a Line of Credit?
A Line of Credit is a flexible financing program that is meant for a business to use on an as needed basis. This means that a business will have access to a specific amount of money and has the freedom to use the money when they need to. The flexibility of a Line of Credit also enables a business owner to control the interest and fees that they pay on the capital drawn from their Line of Credit. There are no interest charges until money is drawn from the Line of Credit.
The terms of a Line of Credit will depend mostly on 3 factors; business credit, personal credit, and cash flow. Being that a Line of Credit is not secured by specific assets like an Asset Based Loan, it’s important for a lender to see strong operating history and strong cash flow in the business. The better the credit profile and stronger the cash flow, the more attractive the rate and terms will be. Either way, once approved for a Line of Credit there is no requirement to use the money and no fees incurred, which make an attractive proposition to apply for.

Line of Credit Case Study
We recently provided a line of credit to a HVAC Contractor based out of Southern Connecticut. This contractor worked with both residential and commercial clients and decided to expand their business from just service contracts to add new construction as well. Service contracts are much easier when it comes to managing cash flow, their employees always had consistent work and payments flowed in on a monthly basis. Making the jump to new construction required them to lay out money for equipment, materials, and labor. In addition, these contracts were billable every 30 days and payroll was run weekly. This all resulted in capital needed before the job started an while the job was in progress. Without a Line of Credit taking on the new projects and expanding the business wouldn’t have been possible.
