Looking To Get Creative On Business Financing Cash Flow Solutions ? We’ve Got Ideas & Solutions !

OVERVIEW – Information on business cash flow financing in Canada. The growth finance funding you’re looking for come from traditional, alternative and even internal solutions that are used by … your competitors.

Business cash flow financing , in the minds of many business owners and financial mgrs often would seem easier to fix with some sort of ‘ patch ‘ – that unfortunately probably isn’t available ! So it’s sometimes necessary to get creative, as well as researching your growth finance options. Let’s dig in.

The important thing to remember is that depending on what type of lender you choose there are in fact a lot of both viable and, more importantly accessible funding possibilities.

One more thing – Are you looking for either debt capital, aka ‘ loans’, or would cash flow / asset monetization solutions get you to the goal line.

While we might seem like we constantly preach ‘ capital solutions ‘ from the Canadian SME FINANCE marketplace owners/mgrs should never forget how to generate internal cash. That’s done by managing your receivables and inventory and payables to the point where you’re collecting A/R promptly, turning inventory, and slowing payables (without alienating suppliers).

Depending on what industry you are in you also have the ability to ask clients to prepay, or, as effective, get special payment terms from suppliers.

Companies that have an R&D investment can utilize SR&ED tax credit financing as a bridge loan to cash flow their refundable tax credits.

Debt solutions for business financing include:

Govt Guaranteed Small Business Loans

Term Loans

Equipment Loans / Sale leasebacks

Cash flow solutions include:

A/R financing / factoring

Asset based non bank business credit lines

Inventory Financing

Tax credit financing

Unsecured Cash Flow Loans

Merchant Advances

Equipment Leasing / Sale leasebacks

The advantage of many non traditional financings include flexibility, non dilutive nature of your equity, as well as many prepayment provisions that do not come with traditional bank type financing

Knowing how much funds you need and for what purpose goes a long way toward ensuring you can cover your cash flow and growth finance needs. Here the ability to plan for times of ‘ bulge ‘ needs or fixed asset investment is the key to ensuring right financing/right time.

Rarely will firms in the ‘ SME ‘ space be able to boast they have ‘ too much cash ‘ ! A more realistic goal is to ensure you have business credit access when you need it and for the right reason. Seek out and speak to a trusted, credible and experienced Canadian business financing advisor who can assist you with your business cash flow financing needs.
