How to Apply for a U.S. Bank Business Line of Credit – You’ve created an amazing business with huge potential, and you want to capitalize on it by buying new equipment or investing in your next big project. Before you do that, though, you need to figure out the best approach.
The U.S. Bank offers two business lines of credit to meet the various needs of our customers: the U.S. Bank Business Line of Credit and the U.S. Bank Business Preferred Line of Credit. Both are revolving lines of credit, which means you can use funds as needed throughout the term without closing your account or paying an early-closing fee or pre-payment penalty, as long as your balance does not exceed the line of credit’s maximum limit and you pay in full by the end of the loan term (you can select from terms ranging from 24 to 60 months).
What is a U.S. Bank business line of credit?
A business line of credit is a loan that allows you to borrow up to a certain amount of money, which you can then use for business expenses. You only pay interest on the money that you actually borrow, and you can usually choose how long you have to repay the loan. The amount you’re approved for will depend on your company’s financial information, like your revenue and number of employees.
