Small Business

Your small business payroll is due tomorrow, but your biggest client has outstanding invoices. A vendor tells you he will give you a cash discount, but you don’t have the extra money to take advantage of that discount. As a small business, are you falling behind because your clients are falling behind? Do late payments cause you to miss out on product launches, supplier discounts, and bigger orders? Do you need to smooth out your cash flow in order to remain competitive?

Fluctuations in income, supply costs, and market conditions can result in inconsistent cash flow, and that can slow down your business. Summit can help, with working capital financing that removes the volatility and ensures a steady stream of cash flow into your small business. Small business financing can take the form of factoring, asset-based loans, inventory lending, equipment term loans, stretch financing, and streamline financing. Summit structures our credit facilities based on your needs, allowing for maximum flexibility and minimum restrictions. We can even give you a “stretch” piece of lending to help get the cash flow moving when you’re just a little short. Our advance rates are extremely competitive, and our facility structures are customized to your specific situation.

If you have reached a limit with your bank, call us now to see how Summit can expand your cash flow. When banks are unable to help, we can often get capital from your accounts receivable, inventory and equipment.
