Take advantage of finance options

Many are unaware of the benefits that financing provides. Finance allows you to keep cash in the business to be used elsewhere. So, whether you need to pay off a tax bill or invest in new equipment for the business, finance is a great way to do this without causing any harm to your cash flow.

We offer affordable financing for corporation tax as well as VAT loans. So instead of paying upfront and in full, we allow you to spread the cost over a period of time.

But it doesn’t stop there, our parent company, WestWon is a well-established provider of asset finance. Leasing is an effective way to obtain the latest equipment without breaking the bank.

Send invoices out ASAP

The quicker you send out the invoice to your client the better. This way, the likelihood of you getting paid on time or even early is increased! Although, it is also important that you have constructed your invoice in a way that is easy for your client to understand. With emphasis on including the date as well as outlining clear instructions on forms of payment.

Conduct customer credit checks

By doing this, you will be able to make better judgement in customers by checking their credit before making that sale. If the customer has a poor credit score you can prepare yourself for late payments and set interest rates accordingly.
