Grow Now, Pay Later: Financing your business Invoices
What is Finance For Invoices?
All businesses have payments to make. Whether it be Accountants who bill for their services. Solicitors costs. Refurbishing premises. Paying for Recruitment consultants or software development. Suppliers want to be paid for their work and usually require payment in full. Settling costing invoices can really drain business cash-flow and many businesses are now choosing to allow finance company to pay the invoice on their behalf and spread the repayment over the year. This reduces the strain on cash-flow and stress from chasing creditors.

How Does Financing For Invoice Work?
Each business is assessed initially for a credit limit. This is usually between £50,000 – £250,000 (but can vary). Underwriting process is simple, by connecting banking data to an online portal you will be given an offer.
Once the credit limit is in place you will have access to a portal where you can submit invoices for payment. When your supplier invoices you, simply load it onto the portal and it will be paid direct. The lender can use specific bank payment release process so that the supplier does not even realise it has come from a 3rd party. This will trigger loan repayments, usually over 12 months for the amount on the invoice and NOT the overall credit limit – meaning you only pay interest on the value of invoices submitted.

Example. A seasonal business like a restaurant could have undertaken a refusbishment. Meanwhile there are stock invoices to settle and at the same time the annual accountant bill comes through. Settling all these invoices may not be possible, or if it is could place significant strain on cashflow.
By leveraging finance for invoices, all these invoices are settled immediately and the restaurant is able to repay the lender in smaller, fixed repayments over 12 months.
