The Construction industry faces its own set of unique challenges and cash flow issues can arise due to the cost of materials and extended and unpredictable payment cycles.
We have seen it all too often, companies on the brink of going under. Not because they aren’t successful, often because they have been too successful, too quickly and won many large contracts but their cash flow simply cannot keep up.
Contracts are won, additional staff and equipment are hired, and extra vans are leased to fulfil the work.
“Once the money drops in from that contract everything will be alright.”
The labourers and sub-contractors still need to be paid, the monthly lease payments continue, and the expenses go on.
“Don’t worry, once the money drops in from that contract everything will be alright.”
Bills begin to default and too much time is being spent on chasing invoices. Then customers start to query their invoices and delay payments on those already extended terms.
“If that money doesn’t drop in soon, I’m going to be in trouble here, what can I do?”
Construction Finance offers cash advances against outstanding billing so payment delays won’t hold you back.
