OVERVIEW – Information on accounts receivable financing in Canada. Does a receivables loan make sense for your firm . A/R Finance via a factoring or a Confidential AR funding solution

Accounts receivable financing needs often can bring a ‘ world of pain ‘ into the life of your business. How does the owner/financial mgr overcome that challenge of receivables loan funding? We think we’ve got it down pat.

Part of the challenge in this critical area of business is knowing who in fact carries the solution to your business financing, working capital and cash flow needs. The reality? It’s one of three possible finance providers in this area of Canadian business financing.

The players? They are:

Canadian chartered banks

Commercial finance companies

Insurance companies (Larger deals – often labeled ‘ securitization’

In many instances ‘ size matters’ and the actual size of your facility will dictate a more probable solution,

One of those three entities has the solution for your needs, at a cost and structure that make sense given the financial health of your business. The concept? It could not be simpler – a continuous advance against a per cent age of your A/R.

Want to feel relaxed? That relaxing feeling, when it comes to A/R finance revolves around the owner/mgrs wish to bill and collect their own receivables. Banks and insurance firms will of course let you do that, but many commercial finance companies will insist on some sort of lock box or notification to your clients of their financing process.

The solution? Confidential receivable financing, allowing you to bill and collect your own accounts while funding your sales on an ongoing basis.
Naturally the overall financial strength of your firm will dictate which solution is most attainable

Companies with stable or growing sales and reasonable A/R quality are the best candidates for business credit lines and factoring solutions.

What issues should the business owner/financial mgr be prepared to investigate, address and discuss when contemplating a financial solution. They include:

What formula will be used to calculate monthly borrowing capability?

Interest rate or financing cost

Miscellaneous fees

Collateral

Ratios or covenants

There’s no question that if your sales revenues are growing your need for a business credit line via accounts receivable financing will strongly emerge. The positive cash flow generated from these funding solutions will help you grow future sales and hopefully profits.
