Invoice finance vs business loans: Which is right for you?

Aug 21 2018
Business Loan Structure

If you operate a small business and are looking to gain fast access to extra cash flow, then both invoice finance and business loans can be good choices. In this article, we will explore the advantages & disadvantages of both.

Invoice Finance

Invoice finance works by using your invoices as collateral to gain access to your money now. You can essentially get funds owed to you ahead of time. For example, instead of waiting up to 90 days to get paid by a client for a $500,000 invoice, you can receive up to 90% of the invoice value from an invoice finance company like BCashflow Positive, in as quick as 4 hours.

Some of the benefits of invoice finance are:

– Instant cash flow

– The more sales you make the more cash you can get

– Cover the gap of slow payments

– The process is usually much swifter and easier than securing loans

– Suitable for startups requiring working capital to expand

One of the disadvantages of invoice finance is that it is not suitable for all businesses. To find out whether invoice finance is suitable for your business contact BCashflow Positive today.

Business loans

A business loan is a creation of debt by a business, which is paid back over time with added interest. One of the core benefits of acquiring a business loan is being able to spread out repayments over time.

The downsides of securing a business loan are:

– Business loans typically take a long time to process

– You may have to put up large amounts of personal or business collateral to secure the loan

– You might not be eligible if you’ve not been in business long enough
