If your company is short of capital when maintaining the producing and operating turnover because of using or storing various inventories and seasonal material stocks during the process of normal business operations, you may apply for a working capital loan to CCB.
The working capital loan is a RMB or foreign currency loan you use for normal business operations or to meet temporary need for capital.
The working capital loan with the characteristic of flexible loan term could satisfy the needs of borrowers such as temporary, short-term and medium-term working capitals.
On the basis of loan terms, there are three categories, namely temporary loans, short-term loans, and medium-term loans. Temporary loans is granted usually not more than three months, and are used for one-time inventory replenishment or to help make seasonal payments. Short-term loans have terms between three months to one year (excluding three months and including one year), and are primarily used to meet capital needs in normal business operations. Medium-term loans have terms between one year and three years (excluding one year and including three years), and are primarily used as disposable funds in normal business operations.
The working capital loan is available in both the RMB and foreign currencies. Generally it is under one year. It may be longer, but must not exceed three years.
