Asset based lending

Thursday, June 27th, 2019

Asset Based Lending (ABL ) allows you to raise significant funding for your business through a combination of traditional Factoring or Invoice Discounting and funds raised against your existing assets. In terms of lending solutions, whether you’re planning on growing, buying, refinancing or expanding, Asset Based Lending can often raise significantly greater funding than traditional bank lending.

How it works

Asset Based Lending allows you to raise from £50k – £50m with:

  • up to 100% on outstanding invoices
  • up to 80% of the market value on plant and machinery
  • up to 30% on raw materials
  • up to 50% on finished products
  • up to 60% on property

Advantages

  • Raise money for MBI/MBO’s or refinancing, without surrendering equity
  • Enjoy continuity of funding, which grows as your business grows
  • ABL is a fast and effective way to fund growth and it’s scalable
  •   It provides a higher availability of working capital when  compared with traditional lending facilities
  • receivable and inventory facilities are revolving facilities,  with available working capital growing in line with your business
  • Build an Asset based Lending package to fit your precise requirements
  • Asset based lending will  help maintain cash flow – especially seasonally for businesses who trade in fluctuating markets.


BAD DEBT PROTECTION

Thursday, June 27th, 2019

Bad debt protection insures your ledger in the event of a customer’s insolvency or protracted non payment. As a business you protect your assets; offices, plant and machinery, computers, or company vehicles. However, your biggest asset, your debtor book, is unprotected.

Not all finance companies provide bad debt protection in the same way therefore it is important that an insurance product is best suited to your needs

There are three main types of bad debt protection products. As to which one is the most suitable will depend on factors such as turnover and quality of your customers

Stand Alone.  

Bad Debt Protection is a way of insuring your ledger against insolvency. Traditionally this is bolted on to a factoring or invoice finance facility however a standalone facility provided by a specialist insurance provider can be cheaper and provide superior cover. Clients can also choose which debtors they want to insure, and only pay the cost of insurance as and when they fund invoices against that debtor.   Insurance can be provided for international trade as well as domestic

Non-Recourse Factoring

Non Recourse factoring provides businesses with a cash flow finance solution along with the added value of bad debt protection. Factoring provides an immediate injection of cash into the business and will provide a source of funding that will grow with your business. Bad debt protection provides peace of mind that you will get paid in the event of a customers’ insolvency / inability to pay. Factoring also can save valuable management time by chasing and collecting outstanding invoices on your behalf.

Non-Recourse Invoice Finance

Similar to other invoice discounting solutions, non-recourse invoice discounting releases cash against your invoices within 24 hours of issue, giving you access to working capital required for day-to-day activities and business expansion.

What makes non-recourse invoice discounting different from other invoice discounting solutions is that the invoice finance company additionally provides bad debt protection to safeguard your business against the risk of insolvency, and even in instances late payment of debts.
