Scottish Contract Cleaning Company with cash flow problems?

We help Scottish Contract Cleaning Companies to improve their cash flow by releasing
cash that they’ve got tied up in their sales invoices.

I’ve been in business for over 30 years, but one of the questions I’m getting asked
at the moment is ‘How do I improve my cash flow when my customers are struggling to
pay their bills?’

So here’s my best advice. If you’re in the Scottish business-to-business sector you
will be raising invoices for your goods or services and normally you’ll be waiting
45 to 60 days to be paid for those invoices. Now, with the Coronavirus you may have
seen a drop-off in trade. If that’s the case you won’t be raising as many sales
invoices so the amount of money that you’re going to have coming in over the next
six months or so will be significantly reduced.

Now you may well have enough money to get you through to the point where we can get
started again, back up to normal levels, or start to ramp things up again. But, when
we actually get to that point, you’re going to have to wait 45 to 60 days again on
the new invoices that you’re raising.

So you’re going to have a bit of a funding gap between raising the invoice, getting
the cash, and being able to thrive when we come out of this time. So, if you want
to release some money in your invoices, this is where Invoice Finance can come in.

So, Invoice Finance will allow you to have 85 to 90 percent of that invoice in your
bank account to assist your cash flow within 24 hours. At the moment the Coronavirus
Business Interruption Loan Scheme can be used on certain facilities if you qualify
to provide a guarantee to the lender.

Now, this is something that we specialise in here at Playfair Finance and it’s really
easy for us to do the legwork for you to save you from having to go to every provider,
for there are many in the marketplace. We take the application from you, and we then
go out to the market to find the best provider for you based on your sector, your turnover,
and how your business has been trading.

So, we save you the time, but we can also find you the best deal.

Now, the best part of that is that actually, there is no charge for our services to do that.
The charges are actually paid by the lender so you don’t have to pay anything at all.

So, if you’re a Scottish Contract Cleaning company and you would like some help with Invoice
Financing, please get in touch.

Are you in the Construction Industry and need assistance with your cashflow due to Coronavirus? We can help.

If you are in the Scottish Construction business and having problems with
your cashflow due to unpaid invoices, we have a solution for you.

Hi, my name is Graeme Shevas and I help Scottish Construction businesses
who are having problems with their cashflow to release cash from their
sales invoices.

I’ve been in business for over 30 years and one of the questions that
my customers have been asking me lately is ‘how do I get my cashflow moving
now that other businesses are having trouble paying their bills?’.

Here’s my best advice: If you’re a Scottish firm operating in the
business-to-business sector, you’ll be raising invoices for your products
or services. At the moment, your normal payment terms for those invoices
will most likely be 45 to 60 days. You may have seen a drop-off in trade
and the amount of money that you’re going to have over the coming months
will be significantly reduced.

You may well have enough to get you through until the point where you can
begin trading at normal levels again, but when you need cash to pay the
bills as you return to normal trading levels, you’re going to have to wait
another 45-60 days for payment. Therefore, the actual funding gap is
going to be longer than the business interruption.

How are you going to plug that gap? This is where Invoice Finance and
the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) guarantee may
be able to help. As soon as you raise an invoice you could have access
to 85-90% of its value within 24 hours instead of having to wait the
45-60 days to get paid. This will give you ready cash flow to allow you
to meet your costs and thrive as we get back to normal.

It is a straightforward process for the application and there are no fees
for me to do that, as they are covered by the provider.

This is something that I specialise in and my role is to make sure that
you don’t need to go to lots of different providers. You only need to go
to me and I will access the most suitable providers based on the sector
that you’re in, your turnover, and how your business is doing.

I can save you time and get you the deal that will work for you.

I hope you found that useful. If you’re a Construction business based
in Scotland and you need help with Invoice Financing, you
