You can use an Instalment Loan to finance the medium or long-term purchase or replacement of fixed assets, such as land, buildings, machines and vehicles. A loan like this can also cover a temporary shortfall in working capital. You enjoy a fixed interest rate throughout the term of the loan.
How does it work?
- The term is a minimum of six months. The maximum term is set according to the level of the loan:
- less than 6,200 EUR: 42 months;
- 6,200 to 10,000 EUR: 54 months;
- over 10,000 EUR: 120 months.
- Equal instalments (principal and interest);
- Equal principal instalments with separate payment of the interest.
- Made to measure: the term of the loan is based on the amount of your investment and you choose the repayment conditions from among several possibilities.
- Simplicity: the formalities are straightforward and transparent.
Good to know
- In addition to the cost of the loan, you need to take account of an arrangement fee and default interest in case of default payment.
- When funding fixed assets, the maximum amount financed may not exceed the invoice total, excluding VAT.
- You can repay all or part of your Instalment Loan early in accordance with the SME Act of 21/12/2013 (modified on 21/12/2017) on the financing of small and medium-sized enterprises. The early repayment penalty varies according to the amount of the original loan:
- loans under 2 million EUR: the early repayment penalty is equal to six months of interest;
- loans over 2 million EUR: the prepayment penalty is based on the transparent framework of the code of conduct, drawn up in accordance with the SME Act.
