Business Finance For Smart People

Canadian business financing solutions. Does it seem that the capital funding you need to finance your business is always … elusive? Knowing how healthy your company is will allow you to select methods of financing your business.

MAKING THE RIGHT DECISIONS IN BUSINESS FINANCE

Over the long term that adds value to your business and allows you to make the best decision possible around accessing capital, or even buying a competitor or synergistic partner. So consider us your mentor on one of the biggest challenges to business in the SME sector today – funding!

FINANCING NEW ASSETS

Are you effectively financing your assets? How you do that effectively allows you to manage your cash flow and working capital, budget for next year, and determine if you’re as profitable as you can be. In cases where you are not generating profits now the ability to finance assets and growth can turn that around quite nicely.

Quick case in point? The other day we met with an established small business that had modest revenues in the 400k range. They had aggressive plans to grow to well over a million dollars this year. Only problem? No financing to get there, or eliminate the current operating losses due to a heavy investment in marketing their product to the ‘ BIG BOX ‘ stores.

BUSINESS FUNDING TO ACCELERATE GROWTH

Our recommended solution to the client? A combination receivable / inventory working capital line of credit, combined with a supply chain/PO financing solution. If implemented the client would have a lot more confidence in reaching that new aggressive sales goal. Hey, maybe they could turn a profit also?!

BUSINESS FUNDING FROM THE GOVERNMENT? YES YOU CAN !

The Canada Small Business Financing Program is an excellent capital funding solution for Canadian business financing needs. This small business loan funds leasehold improvements, equipment and even real estate. It is not a ‘ cash flow/working capital/line of credit ‘ loan per se and only funds the three asset categories we have mentioned here. Interest rates are very competitive in this small business financing program. Small business loans for startups are difficult in the best of times – let’s not even mention a pandemic !!! , so the ability to fund your company at an interest rate and term that suits your capital needs is a solid benefit to the entrepreneur.

Under the program, the government of Canada allows the financial institution, ie a chartered bank or business-oriented credit union to administer the program under the government auspices. While many business owners chase venture capital, angel investors, friends and family funding they eventually find these solutions for the smallest amount of eligible firms.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR FINANCIAL STATEMENTS IS CRITICAL

A lot of clients we meet shy away from the financing… or dare we say it ‘ accounting ‘ aspects of their business. In some cases, they entrust that role to a bookkeeper or other employee who is the farthest thing from a finance analyst, controller, CFO, etc. Our point – you don’t have to be any of those to have a strong handle on your business. It’s simply about understanding some business relationships (others call them ratios) and getting some solid assistance from, let’s say, a Canadian business financing advisor to implement solutions around some of those balance sheet, profit, and cash flow parts of their business.

CAN YOU ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS?

Investing some time and internal or external expertise allows you to finance the assets you have to their highest use. Are you 100% comfortable in answering the following questions:

– Are we aware of all options to finance inventory and equipment needs

– Will it be necessary to put in more owner capital (sometimes it is, but never always!)

– What in fact are the basic sources of traditional and alternative capital?

– Should I lease business assets, or purchase them outright?

– Can we generate more cash flow out of our accounts receivable?

CONCLUSION

Business Financing Canada style doesn’t have to be the challenge and mystery that it seems to be for many business owners and financial managers, Seek out and speak to a trusted, credible and experienced Canadian business financing advisor who can assist you with your finance and funding needs.
