Lines of Credit

When you find your business is in need of cash, a Line of Credit may be the perfect answer.  With a WashingtonFirst Bank Business Line of Credit, you have access to short-term working capital or ongoing financing.  Having access to a business line of credit is ideal if your business is seasonal or cyclical, has fluctuations in cash flow, or if you are looking to make high volume purchases.  Your line of credit also gives you the capability to finance receivables, better manage your cash flow, and perhaps even improve your company’s credit standing with vendors or suppliers.

Equipment Loans

Start-up and business expansion costs can be intimidating—especially when there is need to invest in new (and potentially expensive) equipment. WashingtonFirst Bank’s Equipment Loans offer business owners the means to acquire the equipment needed without using vital capital or credit lines.

Letters of Credit

A letter of credit helps to make certain payments are received.  The use of Letters of Credit has become a very important aspect of trade.  WashingtonFirst Bank acts on behalf of your business (the buyer of the letter of credit) by ensuring that the supplier is not paid until the bank receives a confirmation that the goods or services have been delivered.  Additionally, WashingtonFirst Bank will also issue Letters of Credit for customers wishing to secure their office leases in lieu of a security deposit.
