Can a business take out finance to free-up cash from unpaid invoices?

Businesses could use invoice finance to increase their capital finance to enable growth by:

Moving away from funding facilities which aren’t suited to customer buying patterns

Developing strong working relationship with lenders which understand the needs and nature of the business

Receiving funding with an above average utilisation basis

Maintaining and improving cash flow whilst waiting for invoices to be paid

A potential scenario of when a business could benefit from invoice finance

If a local hire company was frustrated with its current funding provider as it didn’t understand the nature of the business or buying pattern of its clients, this could present a cash flow problem – even though the hire firm had a very healthy annual turnover.

In this instance, we would review the case and work with a specialist lender which focuses on relationship management and has local discretion when underwriting is concerned.

Spending time understanding the business, developing a strong relationship and auditing the existing funding facility would be crucial so a more suitable solution could be put in place.

We have access to lenders which could provide funding lines with competitive terms and an above average utilisation basis. They could also increase or decrease the funding with a simple phone call.

Sometimes an ‘arm around’ approach works best to establish a true funding partner which can be relied on as part of a close and long-term working relationship.
