Asset based Loans – Our Version Of Genetically Modified Business Lines Of Credit
asset based loans


OVERVIEW – Information on asset based loans in Canada. Commercial financing solutions derive from the true value of your business assets

Asset based loans in Canada – from our perspective here in the trenches a great analogy of this type of commercial financing is that this type of finance is in effect ‘ genetically modified ‘ business credit. That expression is typically defined as something that has been altered using’ engineering techniques’. Let’s dig in.

When it comes to commercial finance in Canada our banks kind of lump your business into a couple of basic categories – investment grade, or middle market and SME Commercial. Early stage revenue companies or start ups are at the lower end of credit quality when it comes to SME COMMERCIAL FINANCE needs.

The reason your firm might qualify for more business credit than the owner/financial mgr might think all comes back to one word – assets. They become the true collateral in business borrowing – and there’s quite often a huge difference in what you’re eligible to finance relative to what your financial statements say.

The typical types of collateral are inventory, receivables, and fixed assets. In today’s more high tech world other assets can sometimes be considered – that might be things like patents, or rights or contracts, etc.

Things aren’t really as complex as some might think when it comes to asset financing. Some very basic formulas drive the entire industry. A quick recap of those formulas?

Receivables – 90% financing
Inventory – % of cost
Fixed assets – current sale/market values (typically achieved by a 3rd party appraisal)

Those 3 formulas compare very favorably when it comes to bank financing – that’s of course because of the more conservative stance our banks take on the ability to value your assets. Commercial finance firms on the other hand tend to have more expertise (and time to spend) on understanding what your assets are truly worth.

Business credit lines that are achieved through asset based loans are a strong alternative to bank revolving credit facilities. Although they will cost more the immediate liquidity they can bring your firm is often a lifesaver in terms of growth and daily operational activities. Simply speaking, they help lessen the cash flow crunch!
