OVERVIEW – Information on the financial cash flow formula considerations that make successful business financing in Canada work . It’s all about those cash flow drivers.


A Financial cash flow formula? Business financing in Canada depends on putting a proper capital structure and ensuring owners/mgrs understand the factors that shape your business financing needs. That allows you to identify proper business finance solutions. Let’s dig in.

Think about it. What does in fact determine the type of business financing you need (and how do you achieve that?!). Some key factors you need to consider are:
cash flow financing
What you will use funding for

At what stage of life is your business in (start up / growing, mature/distress)

What types of business financing does your particular industry demand

How do owners feel about debt / equity and asset acquisition and monetization?

Is your industry popular, or ‘ out of favor’ with lenders

Naturally private,’ non public’ companies have different views of what happens to cash and profits. How they address those views determines their business finance direction. If there is one commonality it’s that everyone, (including the clients we meet daily) wants ‘ inexpensive ‘ financing. ‘ Cheap’ financing , also known as Canadian Chartered Bank finance !… is a lot easier when your firm is growing at a normal rate, has good cash flow, profit margins, and low debt. Companies that have challenges in some (or all?) of these areas will not be eligible for ‘ low cost ‘funding.

The ability to plan your cash flow needs in advance of a crisis is what successful business is all about. It’s also critical to spend some time in understanding the concept of matching proper funding to specific uses.

Some examples? Acquiring assets through proper use of equipment lease financing. Another requirement is daily operating needs re payroll, suppliers, fixed expenses, etc. Here is where the proper BUSINESS LINE OF CREDIT comes into play. In some cases your firm might be investing in R&D. Many firms utilize SR&ED financing for cash flow needs to help recover off funds spent on research.

The solutions to cash flow formulas that work are numerous – but which one works for your company. They include:

A/R Financing

Inventory Loans

Business credit lines – bank and non bank

Tax Credit Financing ( sr&ed )

Equipment Leasing/ Sale Leasebacks

Cash Flow Loans
