Short-Term Financing

The best backup approach for your business

Transactions with Cheques

Access in advance to receipts from your forward sales

In Trading Companies, one of the most widespread forms of the collection of bills is receiving cheques from their customers. However, administration and collection management requires a significant effort with the deployment of administrative personnel involving costs extraneous to the commercial activity.

In order to reduce these costs, Santander provides financing for its receivables: by discounting client cheques or simply the administration and collection of these amounts, with significant benefits for your company.

Working Capital Finance

The Santander support offering has a proposal for your project

If your company is considering extending the terms of its accounts payable, purchasing additional stock of materials or goods, launching an advertising campaign or otherwise planning to grow, Santander provides separate funding for each project linked to its need for commercial circulation.

This allows your company to set a maximum amount up to which its overdrawn cheques will be payable. In this way, you have the convenience and flexibility to make your payments without worrying about the balance of funds. The agreement is secured for a predetermined period with the Bank and interest is paid only on the capital used. The interest rate is lower than the overdraft rate.

Repayable SME loans (in equal and consecutive instalments)

Your company can draw down a fixed sum to be returned in instalments (monthly, bimonthly, quarterly, etc.) that are calculated on the French redemption system. Since the instalments are equal, you can organise the revenue flow of your business. The interest rate is fixed and less than the rate of Current and Giro Account Overdraft Agreements.

Single Signature in instalments (Loans with decreasing instalments)

Your company gets the payment of a lump sum, which it will return in instalments (monthly, bimonthly, quarterly, etc.) that are calculated on the German depreciation system (decreasing instalments) with the advantage that, as you redeem the instalments, interest on the next instalment becomes lower because the balance of the debt is less. Thus, as the periods pass, the effort to return the loan becomes less. The interest rate is fixed and is less than the rate of Current and Giro Account Overdraft Agreements.

Financial Variable Rate Loan*

This variable rate peso credit line, secured or unsecured, allows your company to have alternative options when applying for funding.


  • Used to finance Working Capital and/or Investment Projects
  • Amortizing or bullet loans under the French or German redemption system
  • Periodic or sub periodic variable rate interest payment

(*) Subject to credit approval by Santander.
