As a business registered for GST, you will need to submit a business activity statement (BAS) to the Australian Tax Office every quarter. The next BAS is due on 28-April-2018. When this time comes, many businesses can worry about whether they will have the finances to pay for their BAS. BAS includes GST, pay as you go (PAYG) instalments and other taxes, and if you don’t have the money put aside for BAS when the time comes, it can give you and your business a headache. This time can often put a strain on your business – but it doesn’t need to. If you have a good factoring company behind you to provide your business with factor finance, you can take away a lot of the stress at BAS time.
Factor finance allows a business to get a percentage of their sales invoices paid to them immediately, instead of waiting up to 90 days for their customers to pay. At BCashflow Positive getting paid for your invoices can be done in 3 simple steps:
The price of factor finance varies between different factoring companies. For us, we charge 1.8% for the first 30 days, and then 0.06% per day thereafter for up to 90 days. We are transparent about fees from the start. Give our fee and funding calculator a go and see how much funding you can get and exactly how much it is going to cost.
Factor finance can have many benefits, mainly to get faster cash into your bank account. You can use the money to buy more products, expand your business, or to get on top of your BAS payments. Unlike with traditional bank finance, the approvals process for factor finance can be as quick as 24 hours, allowing you to capitalise on opportunities more quickly. Factor finance may also be a good option when you are unable to qualify for traditional bank finance due to a limited trading history, or lack of personal assets. Factor finance focuses more on the strength and spread of your ledger as opposed to director’s asset backing or business assets. Funding is also more align with your business growth and the more sales you make the more cash you can get.
