Finance your inventory with a Fleximize business loan

Stock financing

As a business that sells physical products, you’ll need to achieve a level of flexibility in your inventory management system to enable you to keep up with the latest trends. It’s crucial to have a steady supply of inventory while remaining agile enough to increase or decrease stock if demand suddenly changes.

Whether you’re a small or established business, no company should struggle with cash flow issues. We set out to financially support small businesses like yours so that when time-sensitive opportunities become available, you can act fast.

Read on for more information on stock financing, how it works, and why a business loan from us can make for the perfect solution.

What is stock financing and can I use it to finance my inventory?

Inventory finance, also known as stock finance, is a form of asset-based lending that can help SMEs boost their cash flow. It enables you to raise finance by putting up your inventory as collateral, allowing you to purchase more items. This type of funding is useful for businesses that have to pay upfront for products that won't be sold until a later date, causing funds to be tied up in stock.

If you're a small business that manages inventory, there are many products available including inventory loans, merchant cash advances, and invoice finance. The most suitable option may depend on whether you’re a supplier or a retailer. As with any financial product, there are always benefits and downfalls to each so we’ve outlined a few below.

Stock finance for suppliers

Many B2B suppliers turn to invoice financing to help complete stock purchases. However, you may have to prove that you have secured a large order from a reputable company to qualify for invoice finance. This could leave you in a tricky position if you want to take advantage of a time-sensitive situation, but luckily, we’re here to help.

In the UK, there are a number of lenders to choose from, but many come with hidden fees and penalties. You could end up paying significant additional costs with traditional inventory finance lenders, even if you only need the funds for a couple of months. That’s why we’ve designed our products to be flexible enough to cater for the needs of a business that requires stock, with payment terms ranging from 3 - 60 months.

Stock finance for retailers

For B2C brands, financing retail stock consists of a short-term loan or revolving line of credit, which typically uses your current inventory as collateral. Other options include merchant cash advances, which allow you to borrow an upfront sum of money and repay the lender with a percentage of future sales. This is perfect for businesses that experience seasonal fluctuations because the repayments are made in proportion to the sales and are not fixed.

However, these products can come with strict terms that may not suit your situation. If that’s the case, it makes sense to turn to a more flexible alternative. That’s where we come in.
