Importing and exporting to or from the UK can often seem a challenging and daunting task. However, thousands of businesses are overcoming the complexities involved and succeeding on an international scale.
It is important to consider all of the options available in order to maximise your opportunities with today’s evolving import and export markets.
As an importer with overseas relationships, your suppliers may request upfront payments to ensure they are covered for the work they are undertaking.
Import financiers provide funding for the goods or services being imported to ease the pressure of payment and keep your business relationships positive.
Export financiers provide funding in a very similar way to how you would obtain an invoice finance facility – either in the form of an export factoring or export invoice discounting facility.
As an exporter you may have a number of invoices issued for clients overseas, with a potential of up to 90% of your invoice value to be obtained, depending upon your business situation.
Some financiers have expert, multi-lingual client managers who will be able to assist you with credit control.
By securing a facility and releasing your funds, you can look to continually grow your trade opportunities.
Laws, regulations, language and currency need to be kept in mind as these factors could all potentially impact your cash flow.
There are also other funding options available which can support and work in conjunction with your business activities:
