Financing a business is critical for achieving success and sustainable growth.

But how do you take your small business and ensure it has the necessary access to working capital to ensure its success?

This is where business finance comes in. Business finance solutions are the lifeblood of any growing company. It’s the fuel that propels your company forward, allowing you to invest in new products, equipment or work space, hire additional staff, or expand into new markets.

In other words, tailored solutions for financing your business give you the resources you need to turn your ambitions into reality.

The Role of Business Finance

Why is business finance so important for continued growth? There are a few key reasons.

1. Access to working capital

The right business finance solutions open doors to opportunities that might otherwise be out of reach due to lack of access to the necessary capital. It allows you to invest in areas that are critical for growth, such as marketing campaigns, product development, market expansion or inventory purchases.

2. Flexibility to suit your needs

Whether you’re considering invoice factoring, a business loan or a different sort of financial solution, it can and should be designed to suit your needs. Both one-time injections of capital and lines of credit for ongoing expenses can be essential for giving your business the leg up it needs.

3. Ensures control over your business

ScotPac’s solutions for financing your business allows you to maintain control over your business without compromising access to much needed cash flow. As a small business owner, continued control with the right and sustainable form of funding is the necessary combination for long term success.

Types of Financing a Business Can Access in NZ

Invoice Factoring NZ

With invoice finance, including invoice factoring, your business can access the outstanding value of issued invoices before your clients settle their accounts. This allows you to use that much needed working capital for ongoing expenditure coverage, investment and growth.

This financing for businesses allows for flexible, quick and controllable access to capital injections to cover gaps in cash flow without you having to wait the period of your payment terms.

Initial invoice finance provides you with a percentage-up to 95%, in fact-of the total value of the invoices. Once your clients pay the outstanding invoices, you receive the rest minus any associated and agreed-to fees.

Trade Finance NZ

Trade finance ensures businesses are able to manage the financial risks associated with international trade. Whether you are looking to export your manufactured goods or import products from overseas, trade finance allows you to mitigate risks, ensure seamless trade and avoid cash flow that can be disruptive for your ongoing operations.

Business financing solutions for international trade include Letters of Credit, which provide guarantees to your supplier that they will be paid upon delivery of the goods without putting you out of pocket, as well as financing options to cover the cost of the goods until they are delivered to you and then on-sold.

Business Loans NZ

ScotPac New Zealand is now providing business loans! A tailored, flexible loan can ensure your business has the capital it needs to ensure sustainable success.

Business loan solutions usually come in the form of a lump sum of capital. This amount is then repaid through regular installments over a set period of time, with interest.

At ScotPac, we offer businesses opportunities to access loans of anything from $10,000 up to $200,000. Our loans can also be provided unsecured, which means you don’t need to put up your family home as security. If you are looking for a secured loan or would like to explore larger business loans to help your business thrive and grow, make sure to reach out to the team today.
