Every 4 Months, Our Client Receives Trade Finance to Export Products Overseas
Simple, quick, and cheap loans for import and export businesses that are structured to the business’s needs. For almost five years, our client has received (and continues to receive) finance to purchase Australian products (Ugg boots) to export overseas. The loan follows a cycle of:
• Direct payment to the wholesale producer.
• Product shipment.
• Sales revenue – and repeat.
The previous loan is paid off every four months and a new cycle begins. The process is kept simple, with funds moving directly from the financier to the product supplier. This has worked so well for our clients that they also started the same process with baby formula. Learn about import and export finance and short-term working capital funding.

What is Short-Term Working Capital?
Short-term working capital is finance provided by a bank or other financier for businesses to meet current demands. It is provided as a loan agreement and can be used for a range of business purchases, costs, and debts. Short-term capital is helpful for businesses that have large gaps between supplying goods or services and being paid(*1).
Why is Maintaining Working Capital Important for Importers and Exporters?
Due to many importers and exporters having large stock inventories, their working capital needs to be much higher than service-based business. The delay between purchase of goods, sale and receipt of payment can be delayed which causes a deficit in the working capital. As working capital is also used for utilities, staff salaries, insurance premiums and other costs, it must be maintained for the business to operate without disruption(*2).
