Construction Finance Key Features and Benefits
Faster access to cash
Accessing cash from your unpaid invoices or applications is made swift with invoice finance. Instead of waiting for customer payments, you can typically receive up to 70% within 24 hours, enabling quick access to your tied-up funds.
Debtors act as collateral
This can provide directors with peace of mind, as they can obtain the financing they need to support their business growth, without pledging their personal assets as collateral. The lender places a lien on the company’s outstanding debts.
Construction invoice finance is a flexible financing solution that can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your business. The more your debtor book grows, the more cash you can generate.
Construction finance solutions can facilitate prompt payments to suppliers and subcontractors. This can help you build strong relationships with your suppliers, maintain a reliable supply chain, and negotiate favourable terms.

Adding optional bdp protects cash flow, mitigates credit risk, provides access to credit checks and debt recovery services, and safeguards your cash flow from the impact of bad debts. You can customise and choose which debtors to cover.
