What is a Flexible Line of Credit?

A flexible line of credit allows you to access money – up to £100,000 - as and when you need it. So, it’s great for businesses that need money quickly, to re-stock or expand into new premises for example. Essentially, it’s a flexible loan, meaning that you can re-pay and re-draw money like a traditional bank overdraft (although there’s no bank account required).
