We take a closer look below at the investment credit option.
An investment credit is a type of medium or long-term loan (i.e. with a term of 2 to 20 years). You can use it for purchasing fixed assets such as property for your business, company cars and equipment. It can be used to fund the start-up of your business or for new investments to further grow your business.
KBC Touch, KBC Mobile and the KBC Business Dashboard enable you to apply quickly and easily for new credit facilities. If you’d like to discuss your financing needs with us, our experts are ready to help you in person at your branch or where you are through KBC Live. After signing, you can digitally manage and draw down the new credit facilities.
You can take out an investment credit with either a fixed or variable interest rate. The interest you end up paying depends on what you choose.
With a fixed interest rate, you have a clear overview of the total amount you will have to repay. With a variable interest rate, you can respond flexibly to developments within your company.
The amount of your investment credit takes into account:
- your investment plan
- quotes and orders
- what you can invest yourself
You determine the size of your investment credit in consultation with your KBC relationship manager.
The term ranges from 2 to 20 years, and depends on the nature of your investment.
With business equipment and company cars, it depends on the maximum term of the accounting depreciation period. We refer to this as medium term, i.e. from 2 to 5 years. For example, the term for a new passenger car is a maximum of 5 years.
With the purchase of real estate for your company, this is referred to as long-term, i.e. from 5 to 20 years. You can fund the purchase of a new business premises for 15 years, for example.

No, an investment credit must be processed on the accounting balance sheet (capitalisation and depreciation). However, the interest on the credit is tax-deductible.
I bought a second-hand car for my business after taking out an investment credit at KBC Brussels to finance it. I applied for the loan digitally using KBC Brussels Mobile and within half an hour the money was in my account. The whole process went that quickly! If everything else in life was that easy, I’d have so much more free time. 😉
