How Much Does It Cost?
WHAT IS YOUR INTEREST RATE?
Our fees are competitive and determined by the cash flow facility you use.
The important first step is to understand is which facility best suits your needs and gives you the most financial gain.
Once you have that information, you’ll know what your costs will be.
However, the important thing is that there be a clear benefit to your business from partnering with us.
So, two things go hand in hand – benefit and cost.
For example, let’s say you own a delivery business and need a new vehicle. You can buy a sedan with a large boot for $25,000 or you can buy a van for $27,000.
It’s an easy choice to make.
You’ll spend the extra money and buy the van because it’s fit for purpose and, although your lease repayments will be higher, you’ll get a better return because you’ll be carrying more packages.
The same applies to cash flow and working capital products.
There is no off-the-rack solution.
Choosing a facility simply because it is half a percent cheaper than another option could end up costing you more than you gain if it doesn’t suit your business.

Why It’s Misleading To Annualize The Discount Rate
Let’s say you sold us a $25,000 invoice and the debtor paid 30 days later.
The discount on the invoice could be between 3% and 3.97%.
Now, it’s not uncommon for someone to take that latter figure and multiply it by twelve to proclaim that our interest rate is a very expensive 48% p.a.
It looks plausible, but the reality is different.
An interest rate of 48% p.a. could only apply if we had lent you the money for 12 months at 3.97% a month.
We didn’t do that. We bought your sales invoice – that was payable in 30 days – at a discount which represents our markup.
If your markup is 20%, it might be argued by some that you are making 240% a year. Wisely, most people don’t think like that.
The real point is whether the outcome represents value for money.
If having access to our funds enables you to grow your business and increase revenue to a level which is greater than the cost of the funds, then the transaction is worthwhile.
We are always happy to help you optimize your cash flow to achieve this outcome.
