Revenue Based Financing: It’s About Cash Flow Not Credit Scores

Revenue Based Financing

Does your business need capital?

Are you looking for a true business loan based on your company’s cash flow?

Then you’ve come to the right place. revenue based financing

Let’s face it many of the business loans you see advertised on the internet are really just merchant cash advances which are based on your company’s monthly credit card sales.

What I’m going to share with you in this post is how to get an actual business loan through revenue based financing not a merchant cash advance.

Typically when you think of applying for a business loan the first place that comes to mind is your own bank right?

However, when it comes to qualifying one of the main factors that prevents one from getting approved is low personal credit scores. Low credit scores can hurt one’s chances of getting the funding needed even if the business itself has steady and consistent monthly cash flow.

So what is the solution?

It’s known as revenue based financing and it is the ideal solution for the un-bankable business owner.

The beauty of this program is it’s quick to fund (in as little as 7-10 days) and great for businesses that can’t qualify for bank funding because an owner has bad personal credit.

Revenue based financing is simply financing that is based on the revenues generated by the business. It’s a short term loan (4-18 months) with rates slightly higher than traditional bank rates and requires no collateral whatsoever.

What are the minimum requirements to qualify?

  1. Business owner needs at least a 550 FICO® score
  2. Minimum annual gross sales must be greater than $100k
  3. At least five deposits per month in the business checking account

*If your business is less than a year old: the past three month’s bank deposits will be reviewed.

If you meet these minimum requirements then all that is needed for approval is to complete a simple application, along with 3 months recent bank statements and 3 months merchant statements.

*If a business does not accept credit cards, a previous year’s tax return would be needed.

So how much can a business owner get with revenue based financing?

For loan amounts the minimum is $5,000 and the maximum is $1.5 million per legal entity. Keep in mind the maximum loan amount will not exceed 10% of a company’s annual gross sales.

For example, if a business has $200,000 per year in annual gross sales than the most it may be able to obtain is $20,000 via revenue based financing.

Once you obtain the loan, repayments are made in small increments every day via ACH from the business bank account except on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays.  This makes it much easier for a business rather than dealing with a large monthly payment.

While there are various types of revenue based financing products (standard, premium, franchise, etc.) with terms ranging from as little as 4 months to as long as 18 months, here is an example of a standard deal.

Standard 6 Month Revenue Based Financing Deal
$10,000 (loan amount) X 1.24 (loan rate) = $12,400
Repayment over 129 days (6 months) = $96.12 per day Monday thru Friday only
