How To Finance A Business: Solutions You Might Not Have Considered !
Keeping your company rolling – It’s all about how to finance your business
in both good and challenging times . Every business owner and financial mgr recognizes there will always be ‘ cash crunch ‘ time at sometime down the road .
Prudent business people know that they should always be exploring financing options , especially when they are considering major growth opportunities , expanding into new markets or products, etc.
A key part of the business funding challenge is your firms finance itself on a daily basis – that’s all about meeting supplier obligations , managing receivables and ensuring you have the optimal funding in place. A business bank loan will often be the most perfect solution , if your firm qualifies !.. for day to day business lines of credit . Bank interest rates are low and revolving credit lines help in finance inventory and receivables .
In some cases it it a question of working capital to finance that build up in a/r and inventories. Your firm might consider a short term working capital loan – these are extremely popular these days. Alternatively a long term ( typically a 3-5 year ) term loan injects that permanent working capital you have been looking for, into the business.
Large orders and contracts – The good news is your firm has or can secure large new orders or contracts previously not available. The challenge? How do you finance these when a typical business bank loan is not the solution ?
One solution is purchase order or supply chain financing . That type of solution allows you to buy and pay for the resources or staff that you need and helps cover the major cash gap that occurs considering the time you get the order to the time your firm gets paid .
Expanding sales and profits is the goal of the majority of business owners and finance mgrs in Canada. In a number of cases that means ‘ capital intensive ‘ and cash must be conserved while at the same time acquiring the assets you need to grow revenues. Equipment financing is probably the most popular method of financing assets , and in fact experts tell us that 80 per cent of all firms at one time or another utilize lease financing options .
Banks also provide equipment loans, typically these are ‘ term loans’. and often don’t provide the flexibility to upgrade or swap out the asset. We urge clients to perform the ‘ lease vs buy’ analysis when considering acquiring new assets
Government funding ? Absolutely ! Thousands, yes thousands of firms each year take advantage of the Canadian government small business loan program, wherein the government guarantees a large portion of your financing to the bank providing the loan. This program has great rates, terms, and yes, even flexibility . By the way, in many cases it’s the ultimate start up financing vehicle, and even covers buying an existing business in most cases.
