The purpose of the roadshow was to make sure Parliament understands the need for consumers and commercial entities in particular small businesses.
A recent survey was undertaken with a sample of small construction and building a business’ where 84% of respondents faced issues with cash flow while 19% dealt with it regularly (Jones, 2018).
Capify can help provide free quotes for small business finance with competitive comparison rates. Capify offers Australian businesses with an unsecured business loan for a quick financial solution to struggling businesses and offers loan terms of three to twelve months. Capify also provides credit card loans or merchant cash advances. This product’s terms and conditions are that the business must have an EFTPOS facility to apply for a business loan. Once funded with Capify, repayments occur through the EFTPOS facility.
The advantage of an unsecured loan is that it requires no personal or business asset; Capify does not offer interest rates either; they used a fixed-rate repayment. There is also less paperwork than a big bank’s process, making it far more comfortable and convenient for small businesses to alleviate their financial burden at an instant, however, Capify does not offer lines of credit. Seeing how construction and building small companies don’t get paid until the building contract is complete, there is a high risk for the company to have a negative cash flow during the operation of the project. Capify provides both short term and long-term solutions towards strained financial businesses in the construction and building industry as the process of providing financial aid is quick and intuitive with zero collateral damage with access to funds in 24 hours.
Capify presents ideal solutions to businesses who struggle to sustain adequate funds or want to achieve certain business goals. We offer two principal products and services that aid businesses in achieving their goals; Merchant Cash Advance and Capify small business loan. The Capify business loan ranges from 5,000 to 300,000 dollars which are deposited into the customer’s account where they will then have the ability to fund their business. This unsecured business loan will then allow enterprises to improve the health of their business and be repaid through small daily transactions.
Moreover, another business product that Capify offer is Merchant Cash Advance, which works best for businesses who tend to experience fluctuating cash flow. Merchant Cash Advance refers to the business gaining a lump sum of money and repaying it through minor percentages of their EFTPOS transactions. This will benefit the business as they are less prone to shortages within their cash flow thus allowing them to increase capital whilst repaying the loan back. As well as this, Capify provides their expertise to customers, suggesting new ways to improve the cash flow, tailored to their specific business.
As the first business to do alternative lending in Australia and 11 years under the belt, Capify proudly declares itself as the most experienced alternative lender. In such a vast and growing industry, Capify has remained a solid pillar in FinTech within Australia and a leader in unsecured business loans in the SME market. Capify does not provide line of credits.
