Merchant Cash Advance

Merchant Cash Advance

A Merchant Cash Advance can be an ideal solution for any business with a fluctuating cash flow. Repayments are calculated using your monthly credit card transactions. This product works particularly well for shops, restaurants and other B2C businesses which may have fluctuating or seasonal cash flow variations.

With a Merchant Cash Advance you only repay when you trade – if business is slow, you pay less. The total repayable is fixed. Whether you repay in 1 or 18 months, the total repayable agreed on will remain the same.

The loan amount and the repayment amount are determined based on your business card transactions. This is worked out using the factor rate which is subject to underwriting.
