Lines of Credit
Chemung Canal’s lines of credit provide flexibility and can be structured to match the cycle of your business’s needs. The amount of each line is based on the level of your need and the financial condition of your business. Lines of Credit may be used to support:
- Inventory purchases
- Collection of accounts receivable
- Other short-term working capital needs
A business with longer-term financing requirements can often benefit from a Chemung Canal Term Loan. These are term loans for specific business purposes with specific amounts.
- A set repayment schedule and a specific maturity date, usually within five years of the original loan date
- We can structure a repayment schedule to accommodate your cash flow cycles
- Loan may be secured with many different types of collateral
There are times when leasing business equipment is more beneficial than purchasing it. If this is your situation, consider our commercial equipment leasing program.
We will hold title to the equipment while your business makes lease payments for a specified period of time. At the conclusion of the lease, your business has the option to buy the equipment. Your business may be able to enjoy some tax benefit related to leasing. Check with your tax advisor.
