Cash flow has an effect on almost all businesses at some point. It is the number one reason why businesses fail; even highly successful, profitable businesses. It doesn’t matter how much profit a business can turn if it can’t pay the bills on time.
Whether your business receives payment upfront for a product or service it may not deliver for months or you deliver a product or service and then submit an invoice with 60-day payment terms, cash flow problems can hit you.
Surviving Cash Flow Squeeze
A regular cash flow planning session will help identify times when there may be a shortfall between payment coming in and going out but it doesn’t make your business immune, unfortunately. We understand only too well that unforeseen things happen in business. For those times, cash flow lending is an ideal stop-gap measure. It allows businesses access to funds quickly and easily.
There are many reasons why businesses need access to cash flow lending:
- Unexpected costs such as equipment breakdown
- New business opportunity arises
- Seasonal expenses
- Debtors paying slower than expected
- Rapid growth

Insurance Premium Funding
Insurance is a big expense for most businesses. Insurance premium funding allows businesses to spread the cost of insurance premiums over the year with multiple repayments rather than making one big lump sum payment to free up cash flow.
A business may find itself in a position where unexpected expenses have come up. Funds are due to come in from debtors but those funds are needed now. A financier pays the invoices immediately and cuts out the lag waiting for debtors to pay.
A financier advances most of the invoiced amount to a business immediately less a discount for a commission.
