Unlock Funding For Growth & Expenses

If you own a small business, you’re probably familiar with the challenge of not having as much cash at your disposal as you’d like. At certain times, you may encounter cash shortages if some of your clients aren’t paying you promptly. Some businesses experience seasonal shifts where money flows in more freely at certain times of the year than others. For these and similar circumstances, having a small business line of credit is very useful to unlock funding for growth and expenses.

Typically a line of credit is granted to a business that has enough history to demonstrate its ability to generate cash flow.  The credit line is used to fill in the gaps caused by seasonal issues, unplanned growth, or other causes of cash shortages.  The lender usually takes a first security interest in all assets of the company, and often on the assets of the owner as well.

In simple terms, the lender establishes a pool of funds that’s available for the business to use as long as its financial situation remains strong.  Principal and interest are repaid according to the lender’s terms.

For many businesses, getting a line of credit isn’t so simple. If your business is new or your own personal credit is less than pristine, you may find that it’s hard or impossible to get the credit you need. One alternative you may not have considered is invoice factoring. This is a way to unlock working capital and improve cash flow without obtaining a traditional loan.

Invoice Factoring: How it Works

Invoice factoring is a distinctive financial service offered by certain companies, including Riviera Finance. The way it works is that the factoring company purchases your accounts receivable and gives you cash up front for your unpaid invoices. This solves your cash flow problems as you don’t have to wait for clients to pay the invoices in 30, 60 or 90 days.

In some ways an invoice factoring line is like a business line of credit.  As long as you have collateral in the form of invoices (accounts receivable), working capital is available to you when you need it.  The amount available is determined by the advance rate (up to 95% of the invoice) and the credit quality of the customers.

While invoice factoring can be thought of as a business loan or a small business line of credit, it works differently from traditional loans. For one thing, you don’t need perfect personal credit to obtain this type of financing. The factoring company actually looks more closely at your customers’ credit, because the customers are the ultimate source of payment.  And because of this, using a factoring line your company doesn’t incur debt.

Invoice factoring is a simple way for small businesses to take control of their finances and solve cash flow problems. One of the leading invoice factoring companies in the U.S. and Canada is Riviera Finance, which has been working with businesses since 1969.
