    Financing with equipement and accounts receivables

    brownie Newbie
      Needing 100,000 to expand successful business. Any way to do this with 200,000 worth of equipment and accounts receivables? One customer has been active for 10 years with 400-600 due every two weeks.

          Sounds good.


          What is Accounts Receivable Financing?


          Accounts receivable financing is the selling of outstanding invoices or receivables at a discount to a finance or factoring company that assumes the risk on the receivables and provides quick cash to your business. The amount of value assigned to the account depends on the age of a receivable. A more current invoice will pay more. Any accounts receivable over 90 days typically are not financed.

              Ok, you have one offer and an explanation regarding your question 'To factor or not to factor?'

              Remember, one can negotiate factored percentages, what will that do? will make you money! Be aware some companies have an account minimum per month or your costs will be higher. There is a cost your going to be incurring over the period you factor. You should know your costs, understand the risk associated with a non-performing receivable, who will pay that outstanding sum? There are some companies out there which provide attorney services for non-performing balances, inquire about that service. Always read the small print, as a rule of thumb I always read the small print first. The equipment you mentioned, is that depreciated value? Any money owed on the equipment?

              Have you looked into the Small Business Administration loan programs for 100,000 or less? You can use a longer term loan and expand your business continually through the SBA.

              A little about me, I managed a small transportation company with revenues of 5.5MM annually. A percentage of the receivables we factored for ubiquitous reasons. One must always manage his financial priorities, this situation and thought to expansion is good but always weigh your options and keep a business continuity plan handy.
