Business loans

Meridian offers loans with competitive interest rates and flexible repayment terms. 

  • Automatic payment withdrawals from your Business Chequing Account

  • Monitor your outstanding loan balance and payments online

  • Get flexible repayment terms with manageable scheduled payments

Business lines of credit

Meridian's Line of Credit is revolving, meaning it's always available to help with short-term financing, unexpected expenses or the usual day-to-day. 

  • Credit limits are based on your business' borrowing needs

  • Only pay interest on the actual dollar amount that's borrowed

  • Monthly statements give you a consolidated view of your account activity

  • Deposits made to your Business Chequing Account are credited directly to the outstanding balance on your Line of Credit, lowering the amount of interest you pay monthly
