Invoice Finance can relieve the pressure on cashflow and give businesses the freedom to grow. By releasing up to 90% of the value of unpaid invoices, businesses can access additional working capital and use the funds to support day-to-day cashflow requirements or fuel investment plans. As well as Invoice Finance solutions, Time Finance provides Asset Finance, Business Loan, Vehicle Finance and Asset Based Lending solutions, and supports more than 10,000 business owners across the UK.
In May this year, the alternative finance provider reached a lending milestone with the delivery of its first Asset Based Lending facility. The £1.1million facility comprised a £650,000 Invoice Finance facility and £450,000 Property Loan. The deal was packaged as a result of rising demand for multi-product funding solutions and Time Finance’s commitment to provide flexible and innovative solutions to businesses across the UK.
