Invoice Finance for a New Start Business

New starts may often struggle to get their business off the ground due to a lack of cashflow in the early days of its existence. Banks will seldom loan money to companies without a financial history and overdrafts are becoming more unreliable and expensive. So where can a new business turn to gain access to funding?


Funding is one of the primary concerns for any start-up business - whether it’s the initial injection of capital that gets you going, or that line of credit that keeps you afloat as you establish yourself as a profitable growing business. We’re pleased to say that we’ve seen many start-ups achieve success on this front by choosing invoice finance.

Invoice finance is when the lender uses an unpaid invoice as security for funding, giving you quick access to a percentage of that invoice’s value quickly, sometimes within 24 hours.

The amount of money a provider will lend you is based on its own risk criteria. But this method of funding lets you access finance for cashflow or investment purposes, using an often-untapped asset on your balance sheet.
