Export Finance

What is Export Finance?

With longer credit terms and further distance for goods to travel, exporting goods from the UK can place a strain on cash flow as the working capital that’s required to fund new orders and grow the business is tied up for longer.

Export finance overcomes these demands, allowing your business to sell to overseas customers whilst maintaining your cash flow and benefiting from the funder’s sales ledger management expertise.

Export finance solutions such as pre-shipment finance and post-shipment finance give businesses real choice when it comes to choosing the facility which works best for them, ultimately allowing your business to trade whilst safeguarding its cash flow.
