“One of the best business decisions I have made is using Touch Financial. They have proven themselves time and time again and they are a valuable business asset.”
Trade Finance, sometimes referred to as purchase order finance or purchase finance, is a solution which can take care of supplier payments and provides the ability to negotiate early payment discounts. It works when trading internationally or domestically with suppliers based in the UK or overseas and the World Trade Organization (WTO) estimates that 80-90% of global trade relies on this method of financing.
Trading internationally has its inherent risks, such as currency fluctuations, political instability and payment delays, but trade finance serves as a reputable solution.
Some financiers can increase your buying power and provide you with more funding if you combine a trade finance facility with invoice finance. They work together well as they can be used in conjunction to finance the whole trade cycle – so there is sufficient working capital from the stage of the confirmed order, supply of goods, right through to the settling of the subsequent invoice.
Our relationships with some of the most reputable trade finance funders in the market and consultants’ expertise around the product means arranging your financing can be a simple process.

Industry: Logistics Turnover: £300k Lender: Lloyds TSB Commercial Finance
“We needed funding to get the business off the ground. Our clients are mainly in the engineering sector, automotive and aircraft part suppliers. Their payments terms vary- anything from 30 to 60 days. That means if we ship something on the 1st of the month and invoice on the 30th, we might not get paid until 90 days after the work was done. That’s a huge hole in our cash flow.” – Managing DirectorRequest Quote
Industry: Wholesale Turnover: £500k Lender: Hitachi
“With turnover increasing by over 50% per year we need capital to invest in the growth of our business. We also pay for all our imported stock up front. This means that we need the money from factoring to keep the operation running and to keep us on track to hit our ambitious targets.” – DirectorRequest Quote
