Revolving Loan Facility

AAA

DEFINITION of 'Revolving Loan Facility'

A financial institution that allows the borrower to obtain a business or personal loan where the borrower has the flexibility to decide how often they want to withdraw from the loan and at what time intervals. A revolving loan facility allows a company to drawdown, repay and re-draw loans advanced to it. This type of loan is considered a flexible financing tool due to its repayment and re-borrowing flexibility.

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Revolving Loan Facility'

A loan from this facility is provided over a specific period of time, usually one, three or six months. It is not considered a term loan because, during this allotted period of time, the facility allows the borrower to repay or take the loan out again. It is also different from a fixed monthly payment loan because a revolving loan lets borrowers use as much of the credit as is available and only pay interest on what they have used.
