As your business becomes more successful and needs to grow you may find yourself in a position where your current cash flow isn't adequate to meet your growth needs. This is very common and is almost one of the milestones of your business, but that doesn't make it any less stressful. When faced with these issues many companies will visit with their bank to open a line of credit or some other form of financing. However, in these times of lean credit that option may not be a realistic one for you. Good news, though, there is an alternative that might fit your needs perfectly: accounts receivable factoring.
