What is Cash-flow Finance?
Cash flow finance is a method of financing in which a loan to a business is backed by the anticipated cash flows of a company.
The cash flow of a business is the amount of cash coming in and out of a business over a given time. Cash-flow finance makes use of the cash generated as a means of repaying the loan.
Cash-flow finance is useful to businesses who make a lot of cash from their sales but do not have a lot of tangible assets, such as property and machinery, that can usually be used as security for a loan.
By choosing cash-flow financing as your business’ preferred choice of funding, you may be able to access funds even before they are earned.
This funding option can be used for major acquisitions, or to finance profitable operations.
Understanding Cash Flow vs. Asset-Based Business Lending
Cash-flow lending allows businesses to borrow money based on a business’ expected potential cash flows. A lender offers a loan that is backed by past and future cash flows of the recipient. This essentially means that a business is borrowing money based on projected profits they plan to earn in the future. Asset-based loans, on the other hand, allow businesses to borrow money from their balance sheets based on the value of the assets on the balance sheet. This method of funding is obtained when a borrower provides inventory, accounts receivable and other assets on the balance sheet collateral. Although cash flows are seen as a deciding factor when providing this loan, these are secondary. All cash-flow and asset-based loans are typically secured. Cash-flow loans consider the cash flows of a business during the underwriting of the terms of the loan while asset loans consider balance sheet assets.
Cash-flow and asset-based loans can be good choices for businesses looking to handle loan costs effectively, as they are both generally secured loans that also come with better terms of borrowing.
Are Cash-flow Business Loans Right for you
If you need extra capital to fund the day-to-day operations of your business, a cash-flow finance loan may be right for you. This type of loan can be used to fund the business’ working capital such as payroll, inventory rent, and so on.
Cash-flow loans are ideally suited for businesses that retain high margins on their balance sheets or lack ample hard assets for collateral offering. Usually, interest rates for such loans are higher than the alternative due to the lack of tangible collateral which the lender will receive in case of default.
A cash-flow loan is right for your business if you have cash-flow challenges for any reason, operate in a seasonal market and experience slow seasons, need cash to handle day-to-day business operations, or simply need to make pressing payments.

How Cash-flow Loans can Help your Business
A cash-flow loan lets you get inventory at the most suitable time. A fresh up-to-date inventory will ideally expand the scope and appeal of your product line leading to more consumers happy with a larger option.
A cash-flow loan, much like a working capital loan, helps companies cover their daily costs and activities. Unlike other funding items, lenders providing cash-flow loans are more concerned with your business results and less on your credit score, which ensures that many more companies will apply and get finance.
This means that as long as you have access to cash-flow finance for your business, you can carry out business operations uninterrupted, enjoy a competitive advantage and watch your business grow.
Turning a Cash-flow Loan into a Competitive Advantage
The benefits of cash-flow loans put businesses on a much stronger competitive footing that opens up even more possibilities for growth and potential achievements.
For example, the ability to respond rapidly to business opportunities, such as acquiring a rival, handling a project, or securing a lucrative business contract, will give you the industry advantage any time.
Cash-flow financing, when used to invest in research and development (R & D) can result in the long-term sustainability of your business. But this is only possible when there is ready cash to be used in that department.
When there is cash, the business has a working capital pool to finance its operations. Adequate cash helps the business boost cash flow rate, increase the financing available to the business, increase its purchasing power, allows it to strengthen its supplier relationships, spend less time and resources managing cash flow and provides funding to increase sales and revenue. All of which gives the business a strong advantage in the marketplace.
What are the Eligibility Criteria for a Cash-flow Loan?
Eligibility for the repayment period of the loan sum and the lowest rates are dictated by the cash flow of the company and the credit history of the business owner. In addition, the business must have been in operations for at least three years.
Lenders may also require a cash-flow forecast for a number of months to show that your business is profitable enough to meet the repayments comfortably. All these may seem overwhelming for a first-time borrower, which is why we are here at Fast Forward Finance, ready to lend a helping hand.
Can I Apply for a Cash-flow Business Loan if I am a Sole Trader or Partnership?
Yes, you can. We welcome applications from all types of businesses.
Generally speaking, cash flow lending is better suited if the company retains reasonably high margins on its balance sheets or lacks hard assets to sell as collateral. This can be particularly useful for businesses like service providers, marketing firms and low-margin product manufacturers.

How does the Application Process for a Cash-flow Loan work?
Application for funding is the first step in any business financing transaction. The amount of information you need to provide varies by lender, as does your way of doing business.
Enter the relevant details in the application form to get started. If you encounter any problem, there are experts on hand to help. Just get in touch.
This is where the lender evaluates your application including your loan security, credit rating, proof of income, repayment plan, loan term and the other lender-specific criteria. If everything checks out, you will get an offer in principle from the lender via us.
Once your business has scaled through the underwriting level, the lender will make you an offer. This will typically consist of how much the lender is willing to let you borrow along with the total amount of debt, interest rate and a timeline for repayments.
This will also contain any stipulations that may have been applied during the underwriting process. It is up to you then to accept or reject the offer.
If you like the offer from the lender, you can move ahead by getting in touch with your dedicated account offer to indicate your acceptance and sign the loan contract. This is an important process before the approved funds can be released.
If everything checks out and after signing the contract, the lender will pass the funds to you. It is normally done as a lump sum in the bank account for your company.
