In the past, it was common for businesses to use banks for all of their financial needs
As the economy changes, it is clear that there is a need for small businesses to have more than one way to meet their borrowing requirements. Banks put the risk on business owners by giving money in exchange for property collateral. Conversely, a profitable alternative is invoice borrowing or accounts receivable loans. To use services that allow you to borrow money on your receivables, all you need is an unpaid invoice.
WE Lend more than the BANK and Make Same Day Decisions
Whether you offer a service or a product, you must wait for your clients to pay their bills. While you wait for the check to clear, you may lose an opportunity to invest capital or extend credit to your clients. On the other hand, if you have access to a majority of that cash immediately, your ability to expand your business becomes much easier. Instead of waiting through the process of having your property appraised by the bank, you can have a line of credit extended to you based upon any of your unpaid invoices. This way, slow-paying customers are no longer an issue and you can pay your staff, cover operational expenses, purchase new inventory, pay for unexpected expenses and solve other problems.
When you have an invoice that has gone unpaid for an extended period, you may be losing money in unexpected ways. For example, other bills that you want to pay may have late fees. An empty bank account can quickly cause checks to bounce, and fees to incur.
In other words, sometimes it is better to lose a small percentage on your unpaid invoices than pay larger amounts as time goes on. This is the idea that makes factoring companies appealing. In some cases, a company with an unpaid invoice can receive up to 97 percent of the original sum. While they may lose $3 for every $100 of the invoice, most companies feel it is better to have the cash today than wait for an invoice to become delinquent.
