Export financing and export guarantees
Export financing and export guarantees make it easier for companies to enter new markets. Austria provides companies exporting goods with a comprehensive system of incentives, making it easier for them to enter new markets and to remain successful there. Within this system, Austrian Anadi Bank AG acts as a connection between your business and the funding agency.
Finance and guarantee your export success through one of the many options:
- Sales-dependent financing methods
These are low-interest loans linked to the company’s export activities. They are intended to support ongoing export business. Oesterreichische Kontrollbank AG offers ideal funding solutions in the form of the Kontrollbank refinancing facility (KRR) and the credit line for SMEs (Exportfonds-Kredit).
- Österreichische Kontrollbank AG’s contract-based export financing scheme (EFS loans) EFS loans serve primarily to finance individual export transactions with medium to long-term payment terms. However, they can also be used as revolving loans for export business with shorter payment terms.
EFV-Kredite dienen in erster Linie zur Finanzierung von einzelnen Exportgeschäften mit mittel- bis langfristigen Zahlungszielen. Sie können als revolvierende Kredite aber auch für Exportgeschäfte mit kürzeren Zahlungszielen eingesetzt werden.
- Export financing for international investments
Export financing is intended to support international investment. These can be used in order to establish sales offices, subsidiaries or joint ventures.
- Hedge export risks
No success without risk. That is also true for Austria’s growing export economy, which is why you should hedge your export risk as best as possible. In addition to Österreichische Kontrollbank AG as the largest export loan insurer, private loan insurers are also available to you.
