Invoice Finance and EFG Funding

It is now possible to getĀ Enterprise Finance Guarantee Funding ( EFG) on the back of invoice finance facilities. Additional funding over and above the traditional 80/85% prepayment may be available.

This news may be a welcome relief to businesses that have approached their own high street banks for EFG fundin,g but for one reason or another have been refused. It must be remembered that as far as banks are concerned the availability of a government guarantee doesn’t make a bad deal good. For a business to be available for EFG funding via a high street bank, they must meet that banks normal lending criteria and if there is a lack of security in the deal then that is where the EFG funding kicks in.

If you don’t meet the banks’ normal lending criteria then it won’t get past first base. The problem is that it appears that many commercial high street bank managers don’t know what they can and can’t do and rather than saying no, they string the customer along on a merry dance.

There are currently two invoice finance companies offering EFG funding on the back of invoice finance. One provider will provide an overpayment to a maximim of 100% of the outstanding debtor book whilst the other will provide EFG funding equivalent to any director’s loans that there might be in the business.

Obviously these companies use slightly different criteria and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out which invoice finance company might be best for you.
