BP Factoring Loan Services vs. Traditional Bank Loans
December 13, 2021
When you’re establishing a freight company, waiting for customers to pay their invoices can put undue strain on your business. Building your enterprise to the point where you have sustained cash flow regardless of how long it takes customers to make payments takes time. In the meantime, accruing additional debt can over-leverage your small business, with interest payments becoming a significant monthly expense. There’s an alternative to traditional bank loans, with factoring services. If you have a growing freight business but need additional cash flow while waiting for customers to pay their invoices, then you should be using BP loan factoring.
BP loan factoring services
Factoring isn’t a bank loan. It’s a series of transactions between a factoring company like BP Financing and your invoiced customers. It’s a more streamlined, relationship-focused money lending system that helps small to mid-sized freight businesses develop the cash flow they need to maintain operations and build momentum.
Often you can get your money the same day you submit paperwork. BP loan factoring is committed to getting clients the cash flow they need, which means expediting the process of releasing funds to your account as fast as possible.
It doesn’t add to your current debt load
Factoring isn’t a traditional loan, so it doesn’t add to your current debt load. Your existing debts don’t affect your eligibility for factoring either. You submit your invoices to BP Financing, we give you money up to 95% of the invoice balance, and then your clients pay the invoice directly to us.
No interest payments
One of the significant downsides of taking on additional debt is that interest payments can quickly add up. With factoring, there’s no interest and no interest payments. It’s not a traditional loan, so you don’t owe interest. BP Financing deposits a percentage of an unpaid invoice in your account, and then your clients pay the invoice to us.
Traditional bank loans
Traditional bank loans are essential for starting a new business, purchasing equipment, expanding your operations, but they’re not ideal for problems with cash flow. Use all the financing products at your disposal to build a thriving freight business, including factoring services.
Long wait time for money
Traditional bank loans can take anywhere from 30 to 60 days to receive the money you need. In freight, a lot can happen in that amount of time. Traditional banking loans aren’t ideal for improving cash flow in the way factoring is.
Approval depends on your current debt load
Unfortunately, many new businesses already have significant debt during their initial years of operation. While waiting for customers to pay their invoices, a new loan from the bank may not be feasible.
The loan approval amount is unchanging
No matter how long you work with a bank, their loan requirements won’t change. The loan amount you qualify for depends on your revenue, debt load, and credit. However, building a relationship over time with a factoring company makes a difference. The more you work with BP Financing, the larger the factoring amount you can qualify for––up to 95% of the invoice amount.
