Unlike big corporations, entrepreneurs and SMEs have inherent difficulties in managing their cash flows as they need to balance between staying afloat and spending more to grow their businesses.
Many SMEs face the same predicament at some point: they have a strong desire to scale their businesses, but the amount of working capital they have simply would not allow for high levels of growth to be generated. Cutting cost is not an option; vendors are demanding upfront payment; buyers are requesting long credit terms, and the banks are slow and reluctant to offer lending. In these scenarios, it might be a question of managing your Account Receivables (AR) more effectively.
There are solutions in the market allowing SMEs to leverage their AR such as invoices to obtain quick, short-term financing. Invoice financing, for example, allows an SME to get paid early for invoice payments. Take the example of a fashion accessories seller that supplies to a number of retailers, they can leverage their invoices with those retailers to gain immediate access to cash without waiting for 30 to 120 days on payments from those retailers. This provides a boost in cash flow for the business, allowing it to maintain operations by paying rent and salaries, or even fund new and bigger business opportunities.
Additionally, many SMEs prefer this alternative solution over traditional business loans due to the fast approval process and the fact that for some service providers, no collateral is required at all from the SME.
Corporate Hub has selected Qupital – the leading AR financing platform backed by Alibaba, to offer quick and affordable financing solutions to Corporate Hub’s clients. Eligible SMEs can receive up to 90% of the invoice’s value up to US$2 million, within 24 hours of approval.
