Business credit is a major contributing factor to long-term economic growth as it allows firms to invest in new technologies and to expand their scale. Since banks try to channel funds to the most promising projects and then monitor their execution, business credit also helps raise the overall productivity in the economy.

Business credit used to be the main type of credit extended by commercial banks but this has been changing over time. Household credit has increased in importance and has even exceeded business credit in many of the developed countries.

Definition: Business credit includes credit extended by commercial banks and other deposit-taking institutions (excluding central banks) to private non-financial firms. Included are all credit institutions: domestic and foreign owned as well as private and public ones.
