Benefits of the ICO RGC/SAECA facility

This Facility facilitates the financing of investments in productive fixed assets or liquidity needs inside and outside of the country. The operation must have a RGC (Reciprocal Guarantee Company) or SAECA (Sociedad Anómina Estatal de Caución Agraria) guarantee. Their principal features are the following:

  • New and second-hand assets can be financed (machinery, computer hardware, furniture, properties, etc.).
  • Cars whose price does not exceed 30,000 euros plus VAT. Industrial vehicles can be 100% financed.
  • Company acquisitions can be financed.
  • Starting up businesses abroad.
  • You can finance your liquidity needs up to a limit of 50% of the total amount of the financing, which may be increased to 100% for operations in periods of 1, 2, 3 or 4 years.
  • The investment to be financed will not be able to be initiated before 1 January 2015, and he should execute within 12 months to be told from the date of signature of the financing.

Interest rates

The interest rate can be fixed or variable and is adjusted to the term of the operation and to the percentage guarantee provided by the RGC/SAECA, and it is composed of:

  • One-year forward transactions: Euribor 6 months or fixed rate equivalent + ICO differential (term of 1 year) + 2.30%.
  • Forward transactions of 2, 3 or 4 years: Euribor 6 months or fixed rate equivalent + ICO differential (term of 2, 3 or 4 years) + 4.00%.
  • Forward transactions longer than 4 years: Euribor at 6 months or fixed rate equivalent + Spread ICO (at maturity of the operation) + 4.30%.
  • The credit institution and the RGC/SAECA will apply a margin for intermediation and a guarantee fee, respectively; together these may not exceed the maximum margin applicable to the aforementioned interest rate.

The differential ICO is the cost of fund capture for this body and it fluctuates according to market conditions and the repayment period of the operation. The ICO periodically publishes this information on its website www.ico.es.

No start-up, appraisal or availability fees by the financial institution. Cancellation fee or early repayment charge.

The RGC/SAECA will charge an appraisal fee of 0.50% of the guaranteed amount. Additionally, the RGC will charge a fee on the guaranteed amount of up to 4% for a mutual society subscription fee (refundable to the client once they end their relationship with the RGC).
