CFF puts you in control of your funding

CFF Puts you back in control, with access to increased funding and real savings.

Working Capital Funding: a smarter way to fund your business.

Seeking funding smarter than your average business loan? We think it's time for a change. The banks have monopolised business working capital funding for too long. They hold too many Kiwi businesses to ransom by tying up personal assets like family homes and charging comparatively high interest rates and fees. They restrict funds available to fund growth because they place little value in your accounts receivable when calculating the level of funding they allow you, but they persist in securing themselves with regard to those undervalued assets. This unnecessarily restricts your borrowing ability.
So we have created a better way to fund your business. A way that allows you some control over the interest you pay and allows for your funding to increase in synch with your sales.

This is how we do it.

You sell, we fund - it's simple.

We unbundle your bank's security and use your sales to provide you with cash flow funding that's better and cheaper than a standard business loan, you can get easy access to more funds as your business grows. When your business grows so does the value of your accounts receivable, and your CFF funding facility does too, which means you can get on and grow your business, knowing we have your back.

Our Funding Facilities

We offer three main facilities, the core of each is the same; together we use your sales to provide you with funding. Each facility is tailored to fit the most commonly encountered circumstances and each is structured to compete with a bank overdraft or business loan.

Our most comprehensive and our most popular facility. You may call it factoring.
Your invoices are assigned to us and we automatically fund to the greatest level possible, up to 80% of the value of your invoices. We promptly deposit the proceeds into your bank account.
The cost of debtor management is included in our fee. We work with you to manage your customers' accounts. We perform tasks such as sending the monthly statements, receipting your payments, reconciling the accounts, following up any customer queries and following up those whose payments are late.
If you wish, provide us access to your Xero account and we'll make your life even simpler.
After we receive payment from your customers we perform a monthly reconciliation of your accounts and make payment to you of the residual amount due. Generally the residual amount equates to: 100% of an invoice's value less the initial percentage we've already paid to you and less any funding and administrative fees.

If you have a proven track record and you're seeking a little more flexibility then our Business Funding Facility could become your new BFF.
We have introduced the BFF for clients who don't immediately require the use of the all the funds available to them. Clients who prefer to draw funds when they choose.
To allow for exact cash flow management the level of available funds is readily available via our client portal, via daily emails or sms alerts (txt messages), or via a simple phone call.
Although most clients choose to have us professionally manage their accounts receivable ledger, some who have the necessary structures in place do prefer to do it themselves.
Our client portal provides the functionality for self-managing of accounts receivable.
Do you have your customers complete a "terms & conditions of trade"?  You should it protects your business! The more such "secured" customer accounts that you have the lower our charges.
Provide us access to your Xero account and we'll make your life even simpler.
Your new BFF will allow you to reduce the interest cost and fees charged whilst maintaining access to readily available funds. Potentially more funds than your current business loan provider allows you to access.
