Looking to escape a restrictive overdraft but still want the benefits of improved cashflow?

Many businesses still fund their cashflow through a traditional bank overdraft. It’s only when they come to renew it or look for an increase, they may find their bank is unwilling to go the extra mile. Overdraft providers tend to base their underwriting decisions on past financial records rather than where a business is going. If the business is going through a difficult period, they can find themselves with facilities being withdrawn or at the very least see increased fees.

What are the different types of Invoice Finance?

There is often a feeling of reluctance from businesses when seeking Invoice Finance mainly because there are so many definitions and types available. This causes businesses to feel overwhelmed when looking at financing options.

However, at some stage, every owner-managed business will face an irritating wait for payment from slow-paying debtors and Invoice Finance can offer the best funding solution.
