Your business probably has its most valuable assets sitting on your warehouse floor. Stock Finance can turn that liability into asset.
Raw materials and finished goods tie up huge sums of capital. Stock in any form is an expensive commodity, and the more stock that is held in your warehouse, the less free cash there is available to run your business. The more stock you need to hold the less cash there is to operate, fund initiatives and drive growth.
Stock Finance, also known as Inventory Finance, is a funding solution that lets you release the working capital tied up in stock before you sell it.
The funding works by having a lender purchase stock from your business. Repayment is made when the stock is sold on. How much funding you can access depends on the type of stock you are looking to release cash against, and whether it is basic raw materials, work in progress or finished goods, ready for sale.
Stock Finance is structured as a revolving facility usually over a 30-90 day period so will rise and fall in line with the movements in your purchase and sales activities, together with any seasonality in your business. It lets you access cash from your existing assets as and when your business needs it.
Why use Stock Finance?
Most Trade Finance solutions are based on the orders your business has or can reasonably expect to receive. With Stock Finance, the funding is secured on the physical stock in your warehouse or stockroom. This makes it ideal if you hold buffer stock, or if order finance can’t be used, perhaps because you sell to individual consumers online.
Supporting international trade
As well as providing a simple solution for domestic users, stock finance can also support international trading. Both stock held in the UK and overseas can be used as an asset for lending.
