Invoice Financing

What is invoice financing?

If you’re an SME, chances are at some point you’ve had to deal with late payments from customers. Invoice financing is a way to boost cash flow while you wait to get paid. With invoice financing, the lender gives a portion of the outstanding invoices. Show more

There's a better way to fund your business

"In the manufacturing industry you often sit in between projects with this lull, so for us cash flow is a huge challenge. Just to get funding or capital as a small business owner is almost impossible. If it wasn't for Lulalend we would have sunk a long time ago because of the bridging gap. We had the turnover and capacity but we couldn't get from month to month on the cash flow going in and out of the company."
