Our term loans for small businesses are up to $50,000 and have two tiers — one application only, and the second an application plus tax returns of the business and business owner(s).
 

Lines of Credit

We offer a Revolving Line of Credit of up to $50,000 to help with cash flow issues like those caused from a period of lower profits, slower cash collections or increased expenses. There are two tiers — one application only, and the second an application plus tax returns of the business and business owner(s).

Business Overdraft Protection

Protect your business and credit with our Business Overdraft Protection (ODP) service. It provides a convenient safety net when a business account balance unexpectedly drops below zero. ODP protects, up to $10,000, from penalties related to drawing from an account with insufficient funds. This is an application-only process.

Wintrust works with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to offer government sponsored loans. If you are starting or buying a business, expanding your current business or buying real estate for your business, talk to one of our experienced bankers and see how Wintrust and the SBA can work for you.
