Small Business Loans

Many applications submitted for small business loans are rejected by banks; even applicants with strong personal credit and solid business experience. This happens when applicants are required to fit into a strict set of criteria laid out by the credit underwriting group. In recent years, many companies in Canada are looking to private business loans to obtain the funding they require. As a private business lenders in Canada, we provide small business loans and short term loans at competitive low rates.

 

Express Business Funding’s approach is very different. We provide funding based on the credit strength of your customers and their ability to honour purchase orders and pay their invoices. In addition, our small business financing company can provide additional funding based on the value of your company’s assets. We make it easier for new companies to qualify for financing. Private business lenders have added flexibility; we work with SMEs like you to improve cash flow and support your business growth.

Asset Based Lending

In need of additional funding? Asset based lending companies in Canada, are able to provide secondary / alternative business finance services that are far more flexible than your typical small business loan. Our Toronto based company provides competitive low asset based lending rates so you can focus on your business growth and take advantage of opportunities that come along the way. Alternative funding products such as ABL, are very flexible so that you have control of your cash flow.

 

In recent years, many businesses are often turned down by the bank or are unable to obtain additional funds from the bank, since the bank would not extend additional credit beyond the current limits. The bank was actually limiting the potential for further growth. In these situations, businesses rely on ABL to meet their need for additional funding. Asset-based lenders look beyond the balance sheet and lend against assets such as inventory, capital equipment, real estate and receivables.

5 key differences

Between Express Business Funding and traditional finance lenders.


Maximum loan facility

Because Express Business Funding’s invoice factoring services are based on a client’s Accounts Receivable, the funds available increase as sales increase. Bank facilities will typically have preset limits and can be difficult to increase as required. There is a one-time due diligence fee when an account is opened. Apart from that, our only fee is the discount charged when a bill is factored. Banks may charge monthly rates, facility fees or audit fees which can dramatically increase the total borrowing cost.


No Locked in term

With our accounts receivable financing, there is generally no set term. Clients can use our services for as long as they require them and can repay the outstanding amount at any time without penalty. In most cases, bank facilities have a fixed term with penalties for early termination.


outstanding taxes

In most cases a traditional bank will not provide business financing to Canadian businesses with outstanding tax arrears. Our invoice factoring company will work with your business to finance your accounts receivables even if you are past due on taxes or source deductions.


credit strength/history

With a traditional bank, lack of credit strength or weak financials may result in an application being declined. Our credit decision, on the other hand, is based on the strength of the client’s account receivables and as such, even new companies or those with poor financials may qualify for our business financing solutions.


Timing

Upon receipt of an application and required documentation, Express Business Funding will provide a financing commitment within 24 hours. Following which, business funds can typically be made available to your business within 2 to 4 days. Banks may take several weeks before making a financing decision and even longer before finally providing your business with funds.


Frequent Questions

 

Accounts Receivable Factoring vs. Purchase Order Financing

Factoring is available to a business which bills creditworthy customers and has to wait to get paid. If you give your customers 30, 60 or even 90 days to pay, a factoring company in Canada will be able to advance you a percentage of the invoice amount today, then wait for your customer to pay the bill. Once paid, you receive the balance; less the fee (usually 2-3% of the invoice amount).

Purchase order financing is quite different, in that you must have a purchase order in your possession to qualify. A financier will then settle the invoice expense with your supplier directly, so that you can fulfill your clients’ order. An interest rate is attached to the amount advanced, which must be settled as soon as the goods are delivered to your customer and you have been paid.

 

Can I use both products together?

Absolutely! If you can have a financing partner advance funds against solid purchase orders, and have that carry through to delivery of the product, an invoice is created upon delivery. If that same financing partner now factors that invoice and provides additional funding, you now can move forward with the comfort in knowing that sufficient cash-flow will always be available no matter how large the next order.

 

What if I have a business loan?

If you are currently using a small business loan or line of credit with an institution that holds your accounts receivable as security, there are 2 options. If the facility is small and does not meet your needs, but an increase is not available, EBF can pay off the line so you can move forward with a more flexible factoring arrangement with us. If you would like to keep the facility in place, EBF may be able to work with the institution and have receivables finance services as an add-on to the facility. Call us to discuss this option.
