What is a credit facility?
This is a facility that gives your business access to a line of credit which allows you to draw down on available funds without us needing to do an assessment on your business each time.
What are the benefits of the facility?
- Access to funds whenever you need them
- Only ever pay for the funds you draw down
- Settle early and save on future months costs
How long is my credit facility available for?
As long as you continue to trade well, the facility is available to you. Please note that you will need to remain linked via your online banking account or online accounting profile (Sage or Xero) to avoid placing your facility on hold.
How do I drawdown on my facility?
Log onto your Lulalend profile and go to the Credit Facility tab. You will see the available amount that you are able to draw down. Select the amount and click “Withdraw now”. You will then be presented with a legal agreement to sign online.
What happens to my repayment profile each time I draw down?
Each draw down cancels out the existing repayment profile and puts you on a new payment profile based on the total capital outstanding after the draw down.
When can and can’t I draw down on my facility?
You are allowed to draw down at any time, other than:
- when you are in arrears on any Lulalend product.
- when the Facility is placed on hold.
How much does it cost to have a credit facility?
It will not cost anything to have a credit facility product. You only ever pay for the funds you use.
What would my instalment and costs be for the facility?
Every month you pay back 1/6th of the total advanced amount plus the monthly cost. For the first 2 months, monthly costs are 2% – 6% of the capital amount drawn down and 2% for each of the remaining 4 months.
How do I increase my facility amount?
Log onto your Lulalend profile and go to the Credit Facility tab. You will see a red circle with an arrow next to Credit Facility Limit amount. You need to click on the Arrow and fill in the amount you would like to increase to.
My credit facility is on-hold, what does that mean?
This will occur when the system requires further information which has been flagged for review. A credit analyst will be in touch with you for more information if required.
