Boost Cash flows with Invoice financing for MSMEs

Managing cash flow is a constant challenge for Small and Medium enterprises (SMEs). Often, funds get stuck in unpaid invoices and delayed payments, impacting day-to-day operations.  Traditional lending options, which need collateral, may not provide the quick help that small businesses need. While Govt schemes like Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana (PMMY) for small businesses are a great option, they may not be accessible to all. In recent years, a new financing option is becoming more a viable solution – Invoice Financing.  Let’s see what is Invoice financing, why it is growing, how would it benefit small businesses and how one can access Invoicing financing from ProFinTech.

What is Invoice Financing?

Invoice financing, also known as ‘Accounts receivable financing’, is a short-term borrowing. This allows small businesses to use their invoices as collateral for a cash advance from a lender. Instead of waiting for customers to pay their invoices, small businesses can get immediate cash flow by selling their unpaid invoices to a financial institution, at a discount.

Why is Invoice Financing growing in India ?

It is growing because of a combination of factors :

What are big benefits of Invoice Financing? 

Invoice financing is more beneficial for small businesses than bank credit.  

  1. Improved Cash flow : Invoice financing converts unpaid invoices into immediate capital. This allows business owners to access the funds quickly, to solve their financial emergencies. Instead of waiting for payments from customers, businesses can sell their invoices to financial institutions and receive funds within days. These funds can be used for operational expenses, purchasing raw materials  and other emergencies.
  1. No Fixed Assets :  Businesses need not provide assets as security for the loan with invoice financing. It is flexible and can be used as a short-term solution. 
  1. Better financial operations : As invoice financing facilitates the necessary liquidity, business operations can be continued smoothly without cash flow gaps. This is particularly very useful for businesses with long billing cycles.  
  1. Stronger and more Positive Supplier relationships : SMEs and businesses depend on a network of suppliers for raw materials, components and packaging etc. Prompt payments to their suppliers can strengthen relationships, trust and collaborations within the supply chain network.
