Cashflow Finance for SMEs

Make the most of your positive cash flow

The shape of the business industry in Britain is changing considerably. Many companies, such as those in the service and knowledge industries, may no longer have access to the physical assets, for example bricks and mortar, which are used as security for business funding.

We can take an alternative view to business lending. We look at the bigger picture.

Rather than just considering the value of your balance sheet and the physical assets your business owns, we can review your current and projected cash flows to establish your true business potential.

What is it?

Cashflow Finance is simple. It lets you borrow against cash that your business has generated consistently taking into consideration your projected cash flows underpinned by current and future contracts. Unlike borrowing the traditional way by leveraging the value of your physical assets such as bricks and mortar as security.

When you borrow against projected cash flow it allows you to achieve business growth without diluting equity or reducing your existing cash resources within your business.

Who is Cashflow Finance for?

In order to grow, all businesses need access to finance at some point. Many SME’s can come across barriers when looking to access finance. This could be due to a lack of, or having exhausted their physical assets traditionally pledged as security.
