Business Financing Services

Why use Accountancy Bridge for a logistics or distribution business?

Your own money only takes you so far:

Cash in your bank can work harder and smarter for you, than cash tied up in vehicles, invoices, property or machinery. It can be used for deposits for additional vehicles, supplier discounts for paying early and it can pay the wages of new or temporary staff to cope with peaks in your workloads.

Finance costs your business money, but it opens options to you for making the most of what you already have by taking your cash further.

 

Achieve your plans quicker:

When it comes to buying assets like vehicles, property, forklifts or even financing invoices, you’re looking at how the business can use that cash to make more money.

By seeing your cash, invoices, vehicles or property as business assets, you are looking into your business strategy and starting to think how to get where you want to be, quicker.

It builds confidence within your business:

When you have cash to play with, staff sense your confidence. You are empowered and make decisions based upon your long term goals, rather than just driving essential cash into the bank account. Your suppliers relax and you win more work on the margins you deserve with low value work being left for your competitors.

Confidence comes from having security and knowing where you stand. When it comes to business financing, we believe that your lender should see your vision and trust in your ability to deliver, no matter the challenge.
