Learn in our short video how we can help you with our working capital loan (Exportfonds credit) with your export projects (only in German).
You are small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) and export goods and/or services. Your business meets the EU definition of a SME:
- Fewer than 250 employees (full-time, excluding trainees) and
- an annual turnover not exceeding 50 million euros, or an annual balance sheet total not exceeding 43 million euros and
- less than 25% of the capital owned by a large company
To finance your export orders and export receivables and increase your liquidity you need a credit that is both attractive and flexible.
Our service: Financing with the Exportfonds credit
As your bank’s partner, OeKB offers working capital loans of up to 30% of the annual export turnover. To make use of the credit, you have to have appropriate export orders and/or export receivables.
The export turnover refers to:
- Your goods deliveries abroad
- Your services for foreign customers such as engineering, IT, architectural and planning services, and others
- Services for foreign tourists, incoming tourism (hotels, travel agencies, and others)
OeKB sets the interest rate (KRR) on a quarterly basis.
Focus on domestic value added
Depending on the Austrian value added and your creditworthiness, the Republic of Austria can bear up to 80% of your bank’s credit isk.Show more
The prerequisite for the Exportfonds credit that covers part of the corporate risk is an Austrian value added of at least 25%. In particular, this takes into account gross profit to turnover ratio and the number of employees. Raw materials and basic materials that are neither extracted nor produced domestically are not included in the foreign content.
If the foreign content amounts to 75% or more, it is still possible to receive attractive funding with an Exportfonds credit. However, the credit risk will remain with your bank.
Low interest rates. OeKB charges no commitment fee.
The revolving Exportfonds credit can last for several years and be used flexibly.
