Working Capital Loans and Merchant Cash Advances

Working capital loans and merchant cash advances can be understood as the purchase and sale of your business’ future revenue at a discounted price, which is usually represented by a factor rate. For example, a borrower or “buyer” can purchase 15% of the projected revenue of your business over the course of the next 10 months. If your business is generating $25,000 per month, this equals about $250,000 in revenue and the effective purchase amount comes out at $250,000(0.15) = $37,000. Let’s now assume the agreed discount amount is of 20% $37,000(0.80) = $29,600. Your business would be effectively selling $37,000 worth of future revenue for $29,600 right now. 

In this particular example the discount would be represented by a factor of 1.25 and the loan terms would be the following: 

Funded amount: $29,600 at a factor of 1.25 and paid back daily or weekly over 10 months or until $37,000 is reached.

  • This product can be very useful when speed of capital is of high priority.
  • Creates the ability to capitalize business projects and ventures that come and go quickly.
  • Credit score is not as heavily weighed as revenue consistency during the underwriting process.
  • Payments are usually structured on a daily or weekly basis.
  • Total cost of capital is usually higher than other options
  • Can create cash flow constrains if not used
  • properly.
