purchase order finance

Gives you the cash needed to start the work

  • Normally used by SMEs who are unable to take on large orders from customers due to lack of cash resources needed to make a full, upfront payment on goods

  •  Allows you to receive the funding you need for suppliers, staff and other costs   as soon as you receive an order

  • Bridges the gap between an order being placed and paid for by a supplier and the payment is received by the end customer

  • Provides a fast, effective short-term cash injection allowing you to pay for goods or raw materials that are needed to fulfill a large order

how does purchase order finance work?

Purchase Order Finance works differently to invoice factoring and discounting, as it is secured against the initial purchase order (PO) from your customers instead of their outstanding invoice. The lender that we pair your business will be centred around the size of the order and their credit score.

This method of finance acts as a huge benefit for growing businesses as it focuses on the customers ability to pay for the completed PO instead of your own businesses finances. 

When the order has been delivered and the invoice has been raised, you will repay the amount that you borrowed as well as any transaction fees and interest.

Better Rates
