Trade Debtor Finance consultants Pty Ltd (TDFC) was contacted late last year by a transport company with 3 trucks with 2-3 debtors. This firm’s owners were quick to explain that a shortage of cash flow has caused a problem with a fuel bill and that it was causing work to slow down.
Typical introducers would just give them a few lenders in an effort to sign them up, but not our firm. TDFC we understand that Factoring comes off the profit margin of companies and in this case Transport, they are already running at low margins as it is. One break down in a truck erodes those margins away totally.
We were able to explain that they could get a no lock in solution to fix the immediate problem, however, this would be costly and that if they could sustain a more lock in solution, they could develop a plan going forward.
One simple question, what can you do with the company once you’re back on top of your cash flow issues and have money in the bank. Get another truck into work was the consensus and get it with another debtor spreading risk. With excess to cash flow wages wouldn’t be a problem and by increasing work, slowly we can increase profits as were using the factoring companies money to do so.
This firm has developed the product and 6 months on has landed two more contracts and now has 5 trucks. Yes, they have a lot more money and profits, however, they also have a growing business with much more strain on themselves. Another situation that TDFC will advise on as they need help with infrastructure.
