Business cash advance

Quick facts

A business cash advance is a type of lending that’s based on your future revenue. It comes in a few different forms, the most common of which is a merchant cash advance. You’ll also hear it referred to as a revenue loan, a turnover loan or revenue-based financing.

A business cash advance may be useful if you have a seasonal business, because it means you can align repayments to your trading peaks and troughs – you can pay back more when sales are higher and less when sales are lower.

It could also be a good option if you find you’re not eligible for a bank loan, but you don’t want to part with company equity. Business cash advances are more expensive than bank loans. Perhaps the most popular type of business cash advance is the merchant cash advance. You might also want to look at supplier finance (i.e. supply chain finance).
