Business Loans

real estate financing

Whether you are looking to relocate, renovate, expand or buy a new business, we’ll work with you to achieve your goals. Talk with one of our experienced commercial loan officers about how financing with us can enhance productivity, maximize profitability and conserve working capital.

business line of credit

Support your short-term cash needs with a line of credit from Champlain National Bank. A line of credit can give you peace of mind when it comes to fluctuations in sales and inventory during the year, making sure you’re covered during the slow times. Lines are generally approved for periods of one year.

term loans

Finance the acquisition of equipment, business vehicles or other fixed assets for your business with a term loan from Champlain National Bank. We’ll help you select a term to fit your needs. Term loans generally mirror the depreciation schedule of your purchase.

government sponsored loans

Champlain National Bank offers loans guaranteed by the SBA and the USDA. We also participate in the New York State Linked Deposit Program. Both government programs help small businesses modernize operations, improve competitiveness, access new markets, and create new jobs by making financing less expensive and more attractive. In particular, the SBA 504 Loan Program allows us to provide fixed rate, low down payment financing for real estate, construction and equipment purchases in partnership with the Empire State Certified Development Corporation.
