Does a working capital loan requirement loom on your company's horizon? Business funding is all about timing - the right financing solutions for your business needs which change over time . That additional cash flow from the loan covers up the gap when those proverbial ' cash flow crunches' arise.

They place a very strong emphasis on historical cash flow of your firm, as well as typically a need to see some solid cash flow forecasts.
In recent times, ( hence our ' modern rules ' ) a number of very viable alternatives have arisen in the Canadian market . These alternative financing solutions are more often than not easier to obtain and provide capital to fix the shorter term challenges that business face.
Although they are no pure ' working capital loans ' per se many companies will lean towards a/r financing and short term cash advances ( typically 12 mo duration ).
The short term cash loans are typically repaid via a fixed amount on a weekly or monthly basis. Surprisingly in some cases your bank is debited daily for a fixed amount in certain situations - examples might be retailers or restaurants - The industry has termed these ' Merchant Cash Advances '. Probably the most important requirement to achieve this type of loan is simply your bank statements which show the inflows and outflows of cash . It allows for a formula to be created, determining the loan amount . Here's a secret . It's typically 10-20 per cent of your annual sales .
