Revolving Credit Facilities - How do they work?
The amount a lender will look to offer is typically calculated as one month’s revenue, however in the case of strong businesses or repeat customers they may offer a top-up or an increase in the limit after just a few months.
Usually, once you've repaid a certain amount of money, you can withdraw more — hence the term 'revolving'. The simplest way to think about revolving credit facilities is that they're effectively a type of loan that can be automatically renewed.
Because of their convenience and flexibility, revolving credit facilities tend to have higher fees than fixed term loans. The term will also likely be limited to between 6 months and 2 years — however, if all goes well, a lender will typically offer a renewal at the end of the term.
Revolving credit facilities are best used to cover specific cash flow gaps for a week or two, which means you're only paying interest for a matter of days, rather than for months or years as you would with a fixed business loan. In other words, having revolving credit means you only pay for what you use.
