Trade Loans

Barclays trade loans and green trade loans offer a flexible way to finance purchases while you are waiting for payment for goods. We can structure loans to suit your trading cycle and both regular and one-off financing needs.

Seamless trade financing

Trade loans are an important and well-established trade finance technique – enabling finance to be provided until payment for goods is received.

Particularly suited to wholesalers and manufacturers, trade loans can be used to fund regular or one-off purchases of goods and raw materials. Barclays trade loans can support UK-based companies with short-term borrowing needs of 30 to 364 days. Facilities are available for £250,000 upwards in sterling and most major currencies at fixed rates.

What can trade loans do for you?

  • Finance regular or one-off purchases of goods and raw materials through a simple-to-draw revolving facility
  • Provide funds until payments from goods is received. Can be used on open account, collections or documentary credit terms
  • Can accommodate both high-volume and bespoke transactions, and be adapted to your trading cycle
  • Provide funds to pay import collections and import letters of credit at sight, while extending your working capital
  • Can enhance your reputation with suppliers by allowing you to accept shorter payment terms
