Company history

CFF is an independently owned business that's been delivering flexible cash flow and time freeing solutions to NZ businesses since 1989. We are more flexible than others, including finance companies.

Like so many New Zealand businesses we started out in a single room at home.

We have developed our systems and our software continuously since that time and have been fortunate to have had the help of great staff.

We've always provided funding facilities that suit business cycles, freeing up working capital, time and giving freedom from "cash flow worry" so that greater time and energy can be more productively spent seeing to customers' needs and business growth.

However, our methods of delivery have changed over the years as ways of communication and sharing information have evolved.

Over time we have observed that the greatest assistance to our clients is achieved by their utilisation of our tailored facilities:

  • Business Funding Facility;
  • Full Service Funding Facility; and
  • Business Backstop Funding Facility.

because they compete favourably with any form of working capital business loan offered by New Zealand finance companies.

Clients have used our facilities both as standalone solutions and as solutions that complement their existing funding arrangements. They have benefitted from access to a greater level of funding and what's more, typically at better than bank interest rates.

To some our debtor management service has provided a huge unforeseen benefit.

Most prospective clients do not comprehend the value that can be derived from a professionally managed debtors' ledger and the potential amount of time freed up.

Over time we have developed this area of our service to greater enable clients to keep track of their business and to allow easier collaboration in resolving any customer queries.

The next leg of our journey is to further embrace technology so that we can bring you even greater efficiencies, this includes setting out on a social media adventure, with some trepidation, but who knows?
