Invoice finance vs business loans

If you’re looking for a business loan it’s well worth investigating whether you could turn your unpaid invoices into cash for your business, through invoice financing.

A business loan not only adds to your fixed cost base; it also adds to your business debt. With Invoice financing, you only borrow up to the amount you’re already owed. It’s funding that scales with your business growth and provides you with flexible cash flow.
