The Importance of Positive Cash Flow for SMEsJul 20 2018 in Business Cash Flow
Cash Flow is a great signal to indicate the health of Small To Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Positive cash flow puts a company in a better position to grow and sustain the business.
However, if the business cash flow is constantly in negative, there should be an immediate concern to find out what is causing the problem. Not all situations are alike. However, many common issues can be solved by taking advantage of debtor financing with BCashflow Positive.
What is Cash Flow?
Cash flow takes into account the total amount of cash you have on hand. It looks at the total cash from one billing period to the next and compares money in with money out.
If you have money left over, you are cash flow positive. And if you’re left with a negative number, then you’re cash flow negative.
Why is Positive Cash Flow Important?
As the saying goes, “Cash is King,” and for a good reason. Having surplus cash is necessary for meeting operating expenses like wages, and unexpected expenses that might pop up like servicing equipment that requires maintenance.
There are many reasons why a company is cash flow negative. Poor cash management is a common factor with SMEs, which can lead to problems like restricted growth or worse, insolvency.
Even a profitable company has the chance of going out of business when the negative cash flow is a long-term issue. The lack of available cash is what can cripple a business over time.
BCashflow Positive Can Solve Your Negative Cash Flow Problem
A prime contributor to negative cash flow is slow payments. This can cause a huge strain on a company’s cash flow, particularly if clients can take up to 90 days to pay.
Debtor financing with BCashflow Positive can provide your business with immediate cash flow and it is as easy as 1 2 3.
1. Invoice your clients for sale of goods or services and send BCashflow Positive a copy
2. Get up to 90% of the invoice value in as quick as 4 hours.
3. Receive the remaining 10% when your customer pays us less any accrued fees.

Australian Factoring Company – Funding You Faster With Electronic DocumentsMay 04 2018 in Invoice Factoring
For years now, our aim here at BCashflow Positive has been to support local Australian businesses by helping them to access cash flow ahead of time. This has allowed our customers to seize opportunities and grow at rates they would otherwise be unable to achieve. As a leading Australian factoring company we are constantly looking at ways to get funds to our customers faster. A thorn in our side has been the slow set up and settlement process, mainly caused by postal delays. Well, not anymore.
Australian Factoring Company – Using DocuSign to speed up our processes
We have taken a bold move to adopt new digital documents, which has allowed us to help serve our clients faster than ever before. By utilising DocuSign technology, we can fast-track the entire document setup and settlement process. Instead of taking up to 10 days, we can now complete settlement in as little as 48 hours. But how exactly? The typical setup and settlement process previously starts with us drawing up the necessary documents and then posting them to our clients. With standard delivery times and possible delays, we find this can take between 3 and 5 days. The client then needs to read, approve, sign and return the documents. Again, this adds an extra 3 to 5 days to the process. However, by using DocuSign, we can immediately send the necessary documents to our clients online. Then, once they have approved them, they can electronically sign them and send them back to us. By removing the entire delivery process, the only thing standing in the way of our clients and their funds is the time it takes for our solicitors to draw up the documents and for the client to read them.
How safe is DocuSign?
Protecting sensitive data and meeting strict industry regulations is of the utmost importance to us. We would never want sensitive information to fall into the wrong hands and have always taken suitable steps to mitigate any such risks. In fact, by adopting DocuSign technology, we are able to make our processes even safer. Here’s how: Whenever a document is sent through DocuSign, they ensure that all data contained is fully encrypted. In fact, they are able to meet the very strictest regulations by utilising the best data encryption technology that is currently available. What this means is that using DocuSign to transfer and sign files is far safer than sending them the old-fashioned way. Human error and chances of documents going missing are reduced. Instead, they are only ever shared between our company and the clients we work with. This allows us to ensure complete client confidentiality and give total peace of mind.

Don’t use the equity in your home to keep your business open – Use debtor financingMar 18 2018 in Debtor Finance
Small businesses are being forced to take loans using the equity in their home in order to keep their business afloat. Loans taken out against property are used to pay wages, sustain cash flow and keep businesses operating. But this can put a huge strain on the business owners and put them at serious risk of losing everything. When you take a loan out against your house then you risk losing your home if your business fails.
Equity drawings from residential properties for business purposes have increased by over 50% over the past 6 years. This is putting properties in the firing line and business owners at risk of losing it all. Instead of using equity loans there is another option, debtor financing. Debtor financing can be used to improve your business cash flow without needing to draw equity from your home.
What is debtor financing?
Debtor financing uses the amount of money owed to a company as collateral. It allows you to turn your accounts receivable into cash. Effectively this form of finance allows you to access funds that are not yet available to you because they have not yet been paid. This is great for maintaining a constant cash flow as you can access this cash sooner, allowing you to repay it when your client pays.
Typically, you can get up to 90% of the invoice value within 24 hours, allowing you to overcome your cash flow problems quickly and easily.
How does debtor financing work?
Debtor financing is a means of funding small and growing businesses that need working capital so that they can operate. It allows you to finance against slow paying invoices and help you to overcome cash flow problems by following 3 simple steps:
1) Invoice your clients for sales of goods or services and send BCashflow Positive a copy.
2) BCashflow Positive will verify with your client that the goods have been delivered, or services have been fully rendered, before releasing up to 90% of the invoice value.
3) The remaining 10% is provided to you once your client pays us, less any accrued fees.
How do I qualify for debtor financing?
Debtor financing is suitable for small to medium businesses with a high level of customers on accounts and has a monthly turnover of $200,000 to $3,000,000.
How much does debtor financing cost?
At BCashflow Positive we are transparent about fees so that you will know how much it is going to cost from the outset. Debtor financing costs will vary depending on the invoice amount and how long it will take for your client to pay the invoice. For example, on an invoice of $200,000 which is paid 30 days after it was funded will incur a fee of 1.8%. Give our fee and funding calculator a go to work out how much funding you can get and how much it is going to cost.
What are the benefits of debtor financing?
Debtor financing allows you to solve your cash flow problems by releasing immediate cash from your receivables. These problems could otherwise lead to your business being unable to operate and this can ultimately cost you your business. Debtor financing does not require real estate collateral either, which means that you do not need to use the equity in your home to pay for your business operating costs.
Apply for debtor financing with BCashflow Positive is quick and simple. Our online application takes 3 minutes to complete and a response is provided within 24 to 48 hours. Unlike traditional business loans, or loans to draw equity from your home, which can take weeks to months to get a response.
Pros And Cons Of Factoring FinanceFeb 01 2018 in Invoice Factoring
Are you suffering from cash flow problems? Many successful businesses still face periods when their outgoings and income aren’t quite in sync. Over time, the imbalance usually sorts itself out, but on a week-by-week, month-by-month basis, a late invoice, unexpected bill or a need to buy additional materials can see your bank balance plummet.
If you’re worried about meeting day-to-day expenses such as wages, material purchases and vehicle overheads, factoring finance could be a solution. Providing you with an advance on invoices owed, factoring finance provides a rapid cash injection that can tide you over until your cash flow is on a more secure footing.
The advantages of factoring finance
For many businesses, factoring finance is ideal as a short-term borrowing measure. The process doesn’t require a complicated application process and isn’t dependent on standard indicators of business worth such as asset value. You keep control of which invoices you wish to factor and your relationship with your customers remains unaffected.
Quick to organise, your money can often be paid into your bank account within 24 hours – an excellent idea if you’ve got urgent expenses to meet which really can’t wait. The length of time you can borrow for varies from a few days to a few months. The shorter the borrowing period, the less interest you pay.
Factoring finance gives you flexibility – you can choose which invoices and clients you want to draw funds from. Another benefit is that the process has no effect on your customers – they pay in the same way and the only difference is that they pay us for your invoices rather than you.
If you are a business that tends to have a number of outstanding invoices at any one time, factoring finance could work really well for you.
Are there any problems with factoring finance?
If you haven’t used factoring before, it is wise to do your research to determine whether factoring finance is right for you. There may be hidden costs and terms depending on which company you partner with.

Beware Of Flex CommissionOct 25 2017 in Debtor Finance
When it comes to choosing a finance broker for your business, it’s important to consider what incentives they are getting as part of the transaction. Good finance brokers are like trusted advisers to their clients, where they have taken the position of the traditional bank managers of 20 years ago. Some brokers might be swayed and not necessarily have their client’s best interest at heart, particularly where flex commission can be applied.
What is flex commission?
So, what is a flex commission system and why is it so important to be cautious of finance brokers who might be involved in one? In the most basic terms, a flex commission is where the amount of commission is dependent on the interest rate charged to the consumer. The higher the rate, the more brokers can make.
The new legislation from the Australian Securities and Investments Commission to be introduced in November 2018, prohibits lenders from entering into agreements where the benefits paid to a broker are determined by the interest rate, and the broker can set or influence the rate. The instrument will also place controls on fees charged by brokers, which are designed to stop brokers from increasing their fees and charges to make up for any loss resulting from the ban on flex commission. The ban will apply to all regulated credit contracts and consumer leases, excluding home loans.
Although there are new laws being introduced that aim to halt this practice, as things stand, flex commissioning is still a very real issue that needs to be considered carefully by you or your company before choosing a finance broker.
Reliable debtor factoring company
Whilst we do pay brokers incentives here at BCashflow Positive, we certainly do not enter into any agreements where there is flex commission involved. We also don’t take brokers on fancy holidays to try and sweeten the deal.

Nothing Costs NothingOct 03 2017 in Invoice Factoring
If you’ve had your eye on the factoring industry, you might have noticed that there are now some companies out there claiming to offer free debtor insurance. Although on the surface, this might seem like the perfect solution for your cash flow problems, it’s worth remembering that there are some things that are just too good to be true. As Terry Benedict said in one of our favourite scenes in Ocean’s Twelve, “Nothing? Who do you think you are dealing with? Nothing costs nothing!”. In the world of finance, it is critical to read the fine print before diving in.
Read the fine print
It’s well worth educating yourself, then, on exactly what debtor insurance is and the advantages and disadvantages of debtor insurance. Debtor insurance is also known as credit risk insurance and is designed to protect businesses from the risk of late payment or non-payment from their customers.
Debtor insurance comes in different formats, but the common factor is that it covers risks which must be considered within the control of the buyer rather than the business. Examples of such risks might be buyer bankruptcy or inability to pay, pre-credit risk, customers refusing to pay up (protracted payment), or the buyer refusing or being unable to take delivery of the goods they have ordered. Whether your insurance policy covers some or all of these risks will depend on the specifications of your particular contract, so it’s important to read the policies of the company you choose very carefully.
Indeed, there are often crucial parts of the terms and conditions of any contract that will reveal definite disadvantages when it comes to choosing a particular debtor insurance product. Often, only certain types or groups of customers will be covered in regards to commercial risk factors. This means that businesses can end up losing out significantly, and find themselves in a situation where the insurance they have purchased doesn’t even cover the losses suffered. Examples of such accounts that might not be covered include foreign customers or those in complex financial situations.
There are also a variety of other complications that might come with debtor insurance including the requirement to provide detailed customer reports to meet specific conditions of the insurance company. This is before you consider unexpected legal costs that might suddenly materialise when it comes to making a claim. So you might want to think twice about taking up factoring with a company that offers free debtor insurance, unless you know exactly what you are covered for and whether you will be out of pocket in the end.
Reliable factoring company with transparent fees
With BCashflow Positive, none of the complexity above will apply, as we don’t claim to offer free debtor insurance nor do we believe our clients need it. Our 27 years factoring experience will ensure your business is in good hands. We are also completely transparent in regard to fees, so there won’t be any nasty surprises later on. Give our pricing calculator a go to work out how much funding your business can get and how much it is going to cost up front.

4 Major Advantages Of Cashflow FinanceJun 29 2017 in Business Cash Flow
Cashflow finance is a form of financing backed by a company’s receivables. How this works is that, once you have delivered your goods or services to your clients, you can forward a copy of the invoice to your financier and they will make funds available before your customer has paid.
Understanding cashflow finance
Cashflow Finance works by turning invoices into immediate working capital. This then provides your company with up to 90% of the invoices face value in as quick as 24 hours. The remaining balance less any accrued charges is made available once the customer has paid the invoice.
4 major advantages of cashflow finance
The first major advantage of cashflow finance is that it may eliminate any cash flow problems arising by giving you cash on hand to pay for your expenses. This can benefit new or growing companies in particular as the early growth phase of a business is one of the most challenging times for a company. As your sales grow, you can be confident that your Cashflow will follow at a similar pace. The additional cash flow can be used to purchase more stock, hiring more staff, or advertising your business.
The second advantage of cashflow finance is it can cover the gap of slow payments. For instance, if you received an order for $20,000 but you have to pay your suppliers $10,000 within 30 days, and your customers won’t pay you until 60 days. Cash flow finance will allow you to release immediate cash from existing sales invoices to cover the 30 days gap.
The third advantage of cashflow finance is it also allows you to avoid any production interruptions. For instance, if your business is profitable on paper, that will not necessarily keep your employees working or your suppliers sending you materials if you are unable to pay them on time. Having an adequate cash reserve will help you meet ongoing expenses.
The fourth advantage of cashflow finance is as your business grows your facility can grow at the same pace. So the more sales you make, the more cash you can get.
