In the current economic climate, many businesses are looking for ways to improve their financial situation. In this article, we will explore a few different financing options that may be available to you. We will also provide information about how these financing options work and what is required of your business in order to qualify. Keep reading if you want more information on these solutions!
Financing options include cash, credit, invoice factoring, and leasing. Read about each option below to help determine which one may be right for you!
Cash is when you pay for something in full. This can be a great solution if your company has the adequate cash flow to cover the payment without having to borrow money or wait until receiving purchase orders from clientele.
Credit will allow you access to a number of funds that are available under certain terms and conditions set out by the lender. Credit can be used for working capital, inventory purchases, and business equipment costs.
Invoice factoring is when you sell your unpaid invoices to a third party who then collects the payment from your clientele on your behalf. This solution works best if you have an immediate need for money that will not stretch beyond 30 days worth of cash flow, meaning it would take longer than 30 days for all outstanding invoices to be paid off in full. You may also want to consider invoice financing or other types of loans if this solution does not apply to what you are looking for.
Leasing allows businesses access to expensive assets like machinery without having to make large initial investments upfront; instead, they pay monthly installments until the end of the lease agreement when they have the option to purchase or return equipment. Leasing works best if you want a short-term solution and will need access to a certain asset for less than five years.
