 Understanding Business Lines of Credit | Finance > Business Loans from AllBusiness.com
Such commercial lines of credit take the business owner out of the equation so that his or her personal credit rating is no longer affected by business transactions, nor is he or she putting up personal assets as collateral.
Such credit lines can also be based on receivables and, in some cases, inventory (although this is less common since the value of inventory can decline very quickly and is therefore seen as a greater risk to the lender).
While seeking such a line of credit, you will also want to know that the interest being paid is only on the money being borrowed, as opposed to being calculated on your borrowing limit or in any other manner.
