Business financing options are provided by a number of non bank specialized finance companies in Canada. They provide an array of corporate solutions, all of them different but still allowing you to achieve cash flow and working capital goals. They are in fact, the answer to.. you guessed it ‘ no bank financing’ conundrums.
The challenge for business owners and financial managers is to identify and execute on who those sources are and what they can do for your company. Many companies, and industries in fact have specialize needs.
When you think of the right type of business financing for your company it’s important to think of senior and junior! What do we mean by that comment? Simply that a senior lender will want all the security on your business, typically handled by a document called the G S A – General Security Agreement. It then becomes a challenge to source other types of cash flow and debt solutions which can’t be monetized.
A good example of a senior lender is Canadian chartered banks. But when that source of capital isn’t available many firms these days choose asset based lenders, allowing them to drawn on various assets of their business but with more flexibility.
In some cases your business might need a ‘ bridge loan’ – they solve temporary capital shortages.. they are a ‘ bridge’ to future refinancing of your business.
Leasing companies are one of those specialized asset lenders that financing both new and used equipment, even software. While many firms think they are eligible for VC or private equity financing in fact they are poor candidates for that type of financing. Many owners and financial managers spend a lot of time and money going down the venture capital / equity path, only to find they are not ready for this type of capital solution.
Is there a bottom line? We think so, Simply that if you are looking for a commercial finance company for debt and cash flow solutions alternative non bank lenders are a great choice.
What types of financing can be achieved through alternative lenders? In fact they abound and business solutions are available in receivable financing, asset based business lines of credit, tax credit financing, sale leaseback strategies, franchise loans, receivable financing.. also known as ‘ factoring ‘, etc
