Business Lines of Credit

As a longtime community bank, we understand that business happens in cycles. Seasonal sales, sudden growth, and other cyclical factors create temporary cash flow shortages. That’s why we’re happy to extend line of credit options to help you keep your business on track.

Contact a Commercial Lender


Since 1902, TFB now VNB has been serving local businesses in Northern Virginia. You can count on us for competitive rates, flexible terms, and personalized service. Our local ownership also leads to swift decision-making. We know that time is of the essence when businesses need access to capital.

What is a Business Line of Credit?

A Commercial Line of Credit from TFB now VNB is simple and easy to use. As with other types of revolving credit accounts, you can borrow as much or as little as you need (or nothing at all). You’ll only pay interest on the amount you borrow. Apply for a business line of credit before you plan to use it and you’ll enjoy the peace of mind that comes with being prepared for anything. Small business lines of credit are an excellent financial tool for:

  • Providing short-term funds until accounts receivable are paid
  • Covering seasonal working capital needs
  • Investing in new employees or equipment to meet sudden demand
  • Anything else that comes up!

How does a business line of credit work?

Opening a commercial line of credit is similar to the application process for other types of business loans. Choose between an unsecured or secured (guaranteed by business assets) credit line. Generally, lines of credit come with lower interest rates than credit cards. They are also easier to use--linked to your business checking account, you can transfer funds into and out of your credit line, using it like cash. For as long as your credit line remains untouched, you won’t have a monthly payment. Once you draw from it, you can make interest-only payments until the maturation period ends. At that point, any remaining balance will be paid off as a term loan.

Government Contractor Lines of Credit

Northern Virginia is a hub for government contractors. While contract work can be rewarding, it’s also an uncertain enterprise. You have to cover your expenses up front, often before your invoice is paid. That’s why TFB offers asset-based lines of credit to provide working capital to government contractors for payroll and other operating expenses. We offer flexible repayment terms and advance rates up to 90%. Small-to-medium sized government contractors can benefit from local decision-making and the community bank relationship to support their business.
