We always work hard to offer you the most competitive funding option and put an emphasis on personalized and dedicated customer service.

Our Funding and Factoring Solutions 

It used to be the case that businesses that did not qualify for bank loans struggled to find affordable funding. Now, our flexible range of alternative finance solutions means that even businesses without glowing financials or perfect credit records can access a competitive solution. 

Our Alabama business finance options include:

  • Invoice Factoring – Receive up to 90% of the value of the invoices you issue to your customers upfront. Rather than waiting for 30, 60, 90, or even 120 days for a customer to make a payment, you can unlock the cash tied up in your invoices within just 24 hours.

  • Accounts Receivable Financing – Although very similar to invoice factoring, accounts receivable factoring is more like a traditional loan, as all of the business’s accounts receivable (invoices) are submitted for funding and are used as collateral. That makes it cheaper than invoice factoring but less flexible, as you cannot pick and choose the invoices that you want to raise funding against.

  • DIP Financing – Debtor in Possession (DIP) financing can help businesses that are in a bankruptcy situation get back on their feet. As long as you have a viable plan for the future, DIP financing can give you access to the working capital you need to continue trading and turn your business around. 

  • Supply Chain Financing – Also known as supplier finance or reverse factoring, supply chain financing allows the suppliers of goods and materials to stabilize their cash flow by getting paid 100% of the value of an invoice upfront, minus a small fee. When the payment of the invoice is due, the buyer pays the lender directly. This form of funding is suitable for smaller suppliers that sell to large companies with excellent credit ratings.

  • Working Capital Loans – Maintaining a healthy level of cash flow is a challenge even for very successful small businesses. Short-term working capital loans allow businesses to pay their bills and meet their day-to-day costs so you can operate effectively.

  • Asset-Based Lending – If your business is asset rich but cash poor, a line of credit that’s secured against business assets such as inventory, accounts receivable, and equipment can give you access to the funding you need.
