Questions and answers
- 1. I need financing for my company.
You can arrange a negotiation for obtaining credit for your company through a phone meeting with Nordea Business Centre if you are authorised to sign for your company and have the online access codes for personal customers.
Your company’s repayment ability and future outlook are the key criteria for granting credit. The security required for a loan or credit account is always considered on a case-by-case basis. The most common types of security are housing shares and mortgage deeds on real estate (e.g. a plot of land). A floating charge can also be used if the company is registered in the Trade Register and it has movable assets with a security value.
The following are needed for a credit negotiation: the company’s latest financial statements, possibly its cash budget and the board’s decision, if any, on applying for a credit facility/credit, provision of security and pledging.
- 2. How can I obtain a bank guarantee for my company?
Bank guarantees can be used as security for many types of transactions, such as various deliveries, construction contracts, purchases of goods and property and other payment obligations. A bank guarantee can also be used to fulfil the collateral obligations provided for by different official regulations or legislation.
Your company can also request a bank guarantee from its contractual partners so that you can be sure that your partner will be able to fulfil the terms of your agreement. Contact us to check if we can carry the foreign country and bank risk on your behalf.
In domestic trade, the parties normally guarantee their debts personally. In international trade, an on-demand undertaking is usually used.
