Can’T Get A Business Loan? Learn About An Alternative

We live in a credit environment that is tough. Most businesses, even those that were deemed very credit worthy not too long ago, are having a tough time getting any kind of business financing. Most banks and institutions have been hit by the financial turmoil and either lack the capital – or lack the will – to make business loans until the capital markets settle down. That is part of the problem however, since many businesses in the USA and Canada depend on business credit to function. Without it, they run into problems. This has lead to a vicious cycle, where the lack of small business loans is furthering the problem.

What can you do if your business needs financing but you can’t get a business loan? You have no other options than to look for alternatives. One of these alternatives is invoice financing, commonly known as factoring. Invoice financing can help your if your company sells to commercial or government clients (rather than retail clients) that pay their invoices in 30 to 60 days. As a matter of fact – most businesses would not have cash flow issues or need a loan if their clients paid immediately.

Of course, asking clients for an immediate payment will never work because they expect and demand, net 30 payment terms. Using invoice financing enables you to get an advance on that invoice, and provides the necessary capital to run your business. Invoice factoring enables small businesses who may not have substantial assets – aside from good customers – to get financing even in tough financing environments.

Invoice financing is simple to use. You first need to establish an account with a financing company. Once you have an account, you can start sending invoices for financing. The financing company with give you the first advance on your invoice – usually about 80%. You get the second advance, which is 20% less the financing fee, once your customer pays the actual invoice.

Credit decisions are based on your customer’s ability to pay an invoice. This enables you to leverage their credit. But more importantly, invoice financing is dynamic, and your financing line grows as your business grows.
