Finance Guide: Working Capital

Published on 22nd September 2015 - Last update on 27th February 2018

Working capital is essential to any functioning business. It is calculated as the amount of a company’s assets minus the amount of a company’s liabilities. Without working capital finance, it’s impossible for a business to grow and prosper. There are many ways to increase working capital:

  • Invoice finance, a cash advance based on a business’ unpaid invoices. A business will, in effect, sell its unpaid invoices to the finance provider, who will advance a percentage of their value in cash.
  • Asset finance, a way of advancing money on physical assets a business owns. Certain assets, such as machinery, vehicles, and equipment, can be refinanced, meaning a finance provider will advance an amount of money to the business based on the asset’s value.
  • Property finance, including short-term loans to fund development projects that allow a business to grow.
  • Traditional unsecured cash advances
