File management of contract finance for export contracts and purchase orders

If you regularly trade overseas, collecting payments and keeping your cash flowing can be a long, often laborious process. Most companies that trade globally need a buffer from time to time – if you find that’s the case for you, contract finance could be the short-term salve that helps your business expand.

Short-term finance secured against export contracts

Contract finance is a short-term loan, secured against a specific export contract or purchase order. If you don’t have assets to secure against but you have contracts to fulfil, it is a straightforward way of releasing some working capital. Rather than securing a facility against your whole sales ledger, we can find a lender who will look at the value of an individual contract and base a finance solution on what it’s worth and how much it will cost to fulfil it.

Contract finance can be used as a standalone service or as part of a trade finance package with other services such as Letters of credit, bank guarantees or import and export finance. The lender will advance you the money that you need, based on the value of the specific contract and when the contract is complete and you are paid by your supplier, you repay the loan along with interest and any fees.
