Nothing was a drama.Moving forward, I will only use Commercial Point Finance for any future equipment purchases, as well as any general and property finance.To that end, I cannot recommend Brendan and his team more highly!Paul GerslingOwner/directorGersling Transport Pty Ltd

If there was an option for 6 Stars, Tom Rockliff would get it from us!!!We got our machinery finance approved because of Tom. Tom was nothing short of professional, easy to communicate with, quick to respond to any and all queries, and helpful when we didn’t understand paperwork. He worked harder than we ever expected and we will be forever grateful for his help in starting our machinery business. Thankyou Tom 😅🚜👨🏻‍🌾⭐️

Craig was a great help in getting us a loan for a ute. It wasn't an expensive vehicle, however there was quite a lot involved to finalise the application. He followed it through to the end! We'd recommend his services to anyone.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mr Craig Kirby from Commercial Point Finance. Craig is a very approachable and easy to deal with broker who doesn't beat around the bush or waste time. Craig took the time to carefully understand my needs and was able to promptly provide me with a short list of financers that would be best suitable for me considering my situation at the time. The settlement process took around 3-4 days. I was also impressed by the professionalism displayed by Craig as he maintained constant contact with me to provide updates and a clear insight of the process each step of the way. As I am new to the finance industry; Craig and the team at Commercial Point Finance took the time and patience to address any concerns or questions I had. Due to the reasons listed above (and many more) - my experience with Commercial Point Finance and especially Craig have been very pleasant and smooth. I would highly recommend working with Craig or Commercial Point Finance as I have personally witnessed that Craig is willing to take that extra step to ensure customer satisfaction. I commend Craig on his commitment to the role as he provided me with clear and honest results rather than excuses. Looking forward to doing business with him again shortly. Keep up the good work Craig and thank you for your guidance throughout my application!👍I would also like to thank Commercial Point Finance for delivering what they promise.

This was my first time using Commercial Point Finance yet dealing with Brendon was like catching up with an old friend. I didn't have to ask or make requests, Brendon went straight into finding me the best deal, giving me options advising me what the best ones are for our business. He would explain how the money would work for us, his knowledge just flowed, there were no ahs and ums it was just information, he was efficient and in constant communication with me so much so that I will not hesitate to use him again and I recommend him to anyone who is in need of his skill, Brendon thank you for everything.

Brendan and Commercial Point FInance have been great with us since we have started using their services. When we purchased our trucks for LAL Refrigerated he has been efficient, quick to respond and has superior customer service - we have used him at least five times in the last 12 months to purchase our trucks and company cars. There was never a single hiccup - his professionalism is amazing and he just now we have been approved for another truck. Thanks Brendan for your excellent customer service, you are a delight to work with as is Commercial Point Finance. Lastly Brendan and Commercial Point FInance's services are much more superior than dealing with a bank.Vikash and Lidia LalLAL Refrigerated Transport Pty Ltd

We were extremely fortunate to have been referred to Brendan in 2016 when purchasing a 45t excavator. This piece of equipment was a big deal to us. It meant an opportunity to unlock areas of the market that were previously inaccessible. From the onset we believe Brendan has been aligned with our vision and has displayed parallel motivation and determination. His faith and commitment has resulted in steady growth from $2.2m in 2016 to $6.3m in 2020. Brendan has always gone the extra mile to support our business goals. Without Brendan’s seamless professionalism and passion for positive outcomes – we would not be where we are today.

Absolutely fantastic dealing with Brendan. Very professional service. We had finance approved with another broker but when the contract came out it was at 18% interest. We contacted commercial point finance via online inquiry at 6pm and Brendan called me at soon after and the rest is history. 24hrs later we had finance approved at 7.9% huge saving!! Good honest service and advice with the best rates!!! Thanks again Brendan!!

How does Debtor Finance work?

Debtor finance can be disclosed or undisclosed to your customers. Debtor Finance is a full ledger facility. All invoices are subject to the debtor finance arrangement.

Invoice Financing is a selective invoicing facility. Invoice finance is a specific type of Debtor Finance. Instead of selling all your invoices you decide which invoices and when to sell.

Security requirements vary between lenders.  Requirements traditionally focus on:

  • The value of the debtor’s ledger
  • Specific assets
  • A charge or mortgage over the business
  • Personal guarantees of directors as collateral

Most Debtor Finance credit lines will automatically increase in response to increases in sales. Therefore it will provide ongoing working capital to fund the growth of the business.

The typical advance rate ranges from 70% of accounts receivable ledger value up to 90%. The remaining 30% to 10%, known as the ‘retention’ is released following receipt of payment of each invoice by the customer/debtor/buyer.

It is also sold as:

  • Invoice Discounting
  • Factoring
  • Cash Flow Finance
  • Asset Finance
  • Invoice Finance
  • Working Capital finance

Why would you use Debtor Finance?

  • The finance facility grows with your business
  • No real estate security required (unlike overdrafts)
  • The facility is self-liquidating. Consequently, your business is not taking on any additional debt
  • The facility is stand-alone. It is separate from your other Bank borrowings and Bank security
  • You have fast access to your debtor’s outstanding invoices. Get paid straight away. Don’t wait 30, 60 or 90 days.

Who would use this type of Facility?

Certainly, any business may have a use for debtor finance. It is especially useful if you are in a growth phase.  Or if your debtors, for example, keep extending their payment terms to you.

The financier looks at the strength of the debtor rather than your business. The result is a streamlined credit approval process. The financier uses the invoices as security.

Finance percentage of the Debtors Invoice

In some cases up to 90% of the approved value of invoices (subject to credit approval*) can be financed, minus fees, within 24 hours of processing.

What security is generally required?

The financier uses the invoice as security. The financier takes a fixed charge over the Debtors of your business. In the majority of cases, you do not need to provide any other form of security. Therefore, you keep the other security free for other uses (such as property).
