OVERVIEW – Information on the advantages of asset based invoice finance in Canada . Who offers receivable factoring and how does this business finance solution provide all the cash flow your business needs.
Asset based invoice finance solutions , also known as ‘ receivable factoring / invoicing financing ‘ has become a ‘ steady as a fault ‘ business finance solution for thousands of Canadian businesses who utilize it as their main cash flow / working capital source . Why… and how? Let’s dig in.
Thousands of businesses in Canada find it a challenge to manage their businesses from ‘ get up and go ‘ to a ‘ get up and grow ‘ stages. Firms that are new, smaller, or financially challenged in some way find it even more difficult…
So how does this all work? It’s simpler than you might think. Given that your accounts receivable are typically the largest next to liquid cash asset that your company has, this asset becomes your short term financing strategy. The result? With the right solution in place you’re now in a position to meet payrolls, buy products and services, and… dare we say it… grow your business.
By ‘ pledging’ your receivables as the asset you are ‘ monetizing ‘you’re in effect securing ongoing short term lending. Here it’s important to emphasize though this is not a loan / debt scenario. The Receivable factoring paperwork/security documents position your company as selling your receivables as you generate sales to access the amount of cash flow you need.
While Canadian chartered banks have ‘ dabbled’ in asset based invoice finance the reality is that on balance 99.9% of all receivable invoice financing is done via commercial finance firms who compete with the banks for your working capital business credit lines .
If it was all about price and rate the banks would win hands down, given that commercial receivable financing from factor firms is more expensive than those low bank rates. The reality though is that many businesses can’t qualify for the amount of financing they need in part or whole.
If you’re looking for some even better news in how these facilities working then consider looking into Confidential Receivable Financing, which allows you to garner all the benefits of ‘ traditional’.. aka ‘ old school’ factoring but given you the power to do all the invoicing and collecting with no notice to your clients, suppliers, etc. This eliminates the ‘ notification’ required by old school firms that insist your clients be notified of whets going on.
The majority of firms that utilized asset based invoice finance do this as a bridge to going back to accessing traditional bank capital. Typical current scenarios in their businesses include:
– An urgent requirement for cash flow
– Inability to get Canadian chartered bank financing
– Requiring more cash flow than is typically available
– High growth
– The requirement to carry higher levels of inventory and A/R
The formula for receivable factoring is quite simple:
Your receivables are eligible for 90% financing of your month end a/r for all accounts under 90 days (Note – if you have a/r over 90 days you probably have a bigger problem )
In summary receivable factoring is not a loan, brings no debt to your balance sheet, is easier to get approved, and allows you to grow in an almost unlimited manner as long as you have revenues that are stable or growing .
