Loans for Asset Acquisition
Asset acquisition is one of the many strategic ways to expand your business. Some of the available business loan products for asset acquisition include:
Term loan is for a specific amount that has a specified repayment schedule and a floating interest rate. It is useful for acquiring assets such as land, buildings and vehicles.
An interim financing (usually one year) to allow the borrower to meet current obligations by providing immediate cash flow pending the arrangement of larger or longer-term financing.
Leasing is a contract by which one party conveys land, building, equipment or machinery to another for a specified time, usually in return for a periodic payment. It enables SME to acquire the usage of physical assets without having to purchase.
Industrial Hire Purchase
Financing to upgrade or buy machinery and equipment as part of expanding your business capacity without incurring high upfront payment thus freeing up funds for other uses.
Short Term Financing for Working Capital
To run smoothly, your business needs working capital i.e. the cash available for day-to-day operations of an organization. There are various products offered by financial institutions to provide additional liquidity to your business. And these include:
An overdraft is a credit facility loaded to your current account where the bank extends credit to meet working capital needs such as payment of salaries, purchases, utilities and other unplanned expenses. Although overdraft provides flexibility and convenience the interest is high as it is calculated on a daily basis on outstanding balance at the end of each business day.
Revolving credit (also referred to as line of credit LOC) is a type of credit that does not have a fixed number of payments. Corporate revolving credit facilities are typically used to provide short term liquidity for a company’s day-to-day operations.
In Factoring, SMEs can sell their accounts receivables (i.e., invoices) to a third party (called a factor) at a discount. The purpose is to obtain cash advance to meet urgent cash obligations.
Another option to provide short term financing is trade financing. Some of the common trade financing facilities provided include:
- Letter of Credit (LC)
- Bills of Exchange Purchased (BEP)
- Trust Receipts
- Foreign Exchange Contracts
- Bankers Acceptance
- Export Credit Financing
