Frequently asked questions

Applying for Debtors Financing is similar to applying for other business loans. You need to enter some basic details regarding your business and submit documents as required. However, you need to carefully pick the lender who can meet your business financing requirements, are ready to use your account receivables ledger as a security and can offer competitive pricing. We at Broc Finance can help you with that, you can simply apply through our website or send us a message to contact you or simply give us a call on 1300 253 041 to talk to one of our lending specialists.

A Debtor Finance works similarly to a business line of credit. Here, the lender approves a debtor finance limit for your business based on your monthly activities within your accounts receivables. To withdraw funds, you need to provide/upload an accounts receivables ledger on the lender’s portal. You would be able to withdraw up to 90% of the amount of the receivables. Once the debtor pays their owing payment, your outstanding debt will be settled against the money received, and the balance would be transferred back to you after deducting the interest cost/charges for that period.

Debtor Financing is not a feasible product for every business. It depends on how you collect payments from your customer. For instance, if you have a retail coffee shop, you may not be eligible, as you would hardly raise an invoice on your customers as all your revenue would be driven through cash or POS. To be eligible for debtor finance, your business should have regular account receivables activities. Debtor finance is ideal for businesses where the credit period is generally higher.

A Debtor finance limit may have one or a combination of the following costs:

Interest cost: Interest charged on the funds drawn against the receivables for the period it remains outstanding.

Line fees: There could be a small monthly/annual fee charged by the lenders for facilitating you debtor finance limit throughout the term of the loan irrespective of your utilisation.

Receivable ledger Processing Fees: Instead of a line fee, some lenders may charge a one-off ledgers processing fee on each debtor’s finance throughout the term of the limit. Some lenders may give you an interest-free period of 60-90 days for a slightly higher processing fee.

Please feel free to reach out to us on 1300 253 041 or send us a message in case you wish to know more.

The debtor funding limit is determined based on the monthly receivables’ activity of your business. Generally, lenders are open to provide a limit of up to 3 – 4 months of the receivables raised by your business.

Generally, you are not required to provide any additional property security. The funding is advanced against the receivables raised and the lenders would have to charge over the account receivables.

Generally, a debtor finance limit is a less risky and more flexible product as compared to a normal unsecured business loan product and lenders can approve a higher limit which is not possible with an unsecured business loan or a normal business line of credit limit.

Generally, lenders can advance you up to 90% of the account receivables value depending on the risks associated with your business.

A Debtor Finance limit may not always be the right option for your business as you may have a business wherein you do not have account receivables activities, or your business requires a smaller loan amount, and a simpler option would be more suitable. There are various alternative business loan options that we can help you with. Some of the popular options are secured business loans, unsecured business loans, business line of credit and vehicle and equipment finance facilities. Please reach out to us on 1300 253 041 or send us a message. One of our lending specialists would get in touch in no time to assist you.

At Broc Finance, we endeavour to get the most adequate facility suitable to the business requirements of our clients. In most of the cases logged in through us, we try to get an indicative offer from the lender for our client’s consideration before proceeding with formal application and consent to credit check. This approach helps our clients to avoid unwanted rejections and credit checks which can significantly impact their credit scores.

We would be happy to answer if you have any other questions. Please contact us.
