Tips for Financially Troubled Businesses

Author: Marco Terry

Finding financing has always been relatively easy for established companies, provided that they have a track record of success. Most companies that have sales in the range of a million dollars per month can find financing from either their local bank or from other institutions. It’s a different story if your company is smaller though.

Everyone agrees that having the right capital structure with the right sources of financing is critical for the success of a company. The problem is that few institutions are willing to make a business loan or offer any type of business financing to small companies. Large institutions don’t like to lend to small businesses because they find them risky. In part they are right, small businesses have a high failure rate. On the other hand, a small business has a very low chance of succeeding unless they find appropriate funding.

Most business owners will try conventional sources of financing at first. And some will actually succeed in getting business loans or similar financing from their local institutions. But like all small business owners, they will need to show an established track record of success and will need to have substantial assets to back up the financing request. However, if conventional sources fail, few business owners know where else to go for financing.

One possible alternative is to use invoice factoring. One common challenge for small companies is working with commercial and government clients that pay in 30 to 60 days. This practice of offering terms usually ends up tying the company’s capital, restricting their ability to pay vendors or employees. This also restricts their ability to pursue new clients, since they lack the capital to service those accounts. Factoring invoices eliminates this problem by advancing you funds against your invoices. Instead of waiting for your client to pay – you can have the factoring company advance you the funds (less a discount). These funds can be used to pay existing obligations or be invested in new projects or clients.

A major advantage of a using accounts receivable factoring is that most company owners can obtain it relatively easily. To qualify, companies need to have a solid roster of commercial or government customers. Companies also need to be free of major issues – or if they have problems – they need to have a turnaround plan in place.

The reason accounts receivable factoring is easier to obtain than other sources of financing is that they look at your invoices from customers as their main collateral. This allows companies that have a solid base of clients to use that as leverage to fund operations and growth.
