3 Invoice Discounting As your sales and debtors grow, so too will the amount of working capital available to your business: Immediate finance of up to 90% of funds tied up in unpaid debtor invoices. You can draw additional funds based on new credit sales. As sales increase, debtors increase, and the level of working capital funding will grow proportionately. Business with efficient debtor management systems can accommodate invoice discounting.
4 Lending Most businesses require a loan at some stage of their development. A business loan allows you to leave other credit facilities, such as overdrafts, free for working capital requirements. Fixed rate loans will give your business protection from interest rate fluctuations and allow you to forecast your repayments and cashflow more accurately. Term loans are a flexible form of finance for businesses. Medium and long term loans loans are ideally suited for financing business capital expenditure. Business overdraft gives you the flexibility and peace of mind of having extra funds available outside your business normal cashflow. It is versatile and easy to use, allowing you to manage your working capital better and prepare for one-off or unexpected spending without having to look for a new credit facility every time.
