OVERVIEW – Information on business financing in Canada. SME Finance solutions are more relevant than ever in your search for cash flow nirvana and loans that make sense
SME Finance (that’s small to medium enterprise ‘) in Canada no doubt requires a fix (or fixes?) of some sort. Getting a tailor made business financing solution for the loans and cash flow solutions you need is not easy, but where there’s a will there’s a way. Let’s dig in.
Alternative financing solutions are a new and appealing part of the Canadian business landscape. These solutions are of course available to any firm, both public and private, but we’re quite sure the majority of firms that use these solutions are privately held.
At a certain point in time every business comes to that turning point where equity no longer works and debt or cash flow solution decisions must be made. Now ‘ leverage ‘ seems to make a lot more sense than equity dilution.
Alternative finance loan and asset monetization is almost always more expensive than bank debt. But from the owner/entrepreneurs point of view working capital and cash flow costs far outweigh equity /ownership dilution – especially for growing firms with promise.
Let us not forget also that even established firms with relatively good financials often can’t ‘ tap ‘ the financing they need. And going the VC/Private Equity route makes sense only for the smallest % of Canadian business
So what are in fact some of those ‘ tailor made’ solutions that might be highly applicable to your business finance needs. They include:
Confidential Receivable Financing
ABL loans (non bank asset based business lines of credit)
Equipment leases/sale leasebacks
Unsecured cash flow loans
Govt Guaranteed Small Business Loans
Sales Royalty Finance
SR&ED Tax credit financing
2. In some cases it’s possible to have traditional bank financing in place as well as an alternative financing vehicle backstopping your bank facility
3. While the majority of these solutions are almost always used to finance operations and growth it’s important to note that they can also be used to acquire a company or to finance a management or leveraged buyout
