Create a Cash Facility

A cash facility is an agreement established between a financial institution –usually a bank– and a customer. The cash facility in Fairways Debt sets a maximum loan balance that the borrower is allowed to maintain for a specific term. The borrower can draw down or pay back on the line at any time between the agreed effective date and maturity date, within the fixed maximum amount.

The net position of a cash facility can be either creditor or debtor.

Interest payments are computed on a daily basis, based on the outstanding balance amount and taking into account all the drawings and paybacks.

  1. Log in to your Fairways Debt account, e.g. https://login.financeactive.com/eu.
