How does the OptiLine credit facility work?
Once your borrowing capacity has been reviewed, the BGL BNP Paribas OptiLine credit facility(1) is activated on a standard “OptiFlex” current account. You can draw on your line of credit for an indefinite term and up to a set amount.
The overdraft on your line of credit will be totally or partially eliminated as payments are made into your current account. Interest is only applied to the amounts drawn, in proportion to the time period. You can redraw the loan at any time, up to the amount granted.
