Financing Imported Goods

Many businesses are seeking finance to enable them to import goods from foreign countries. Providing that the goods have been pre sold in this country it may be possible to get funding from start to finish by way of an international trade finance facility dove tailing against a factoring or invoice discounting facility.

Many of the high street banks will provide funding enabling business to import goods however many banks will provide a line of credit against the strength of the business in terms of profitability, strength of the balance sheet and the length of time the business has been trading. You must also bank with that particular banking institution and more often than not security such as charges against property etc is often required. Therefore as with most high street banks they can only provide funding for the customers with the best possible credit score.

This leaves a big gap in the market for businesses unable to obtain funding from the banks. Thankfully there are a number of independent based finance companies that are able to provide funding against the strength of your orders and documentation. Therefore funding is potentially available for new start businesses, companies that have declined by their banks or businesses with less than positive trading performances. Providing there is value in the goods that you are buying a trade facility will be provided for you to import your widgets etc and providing the goods have been presold a factoring o  invoice discounting facility will dove tail and be used to repay the trade facility on delivery of your goods to your customer. Simple! Well in theory it is
