Receivables Finance

SMB Financing Options in This Economic Climate

In just a period of weeks, the COVID-19 outbreak has had a dramatic impact on the global economy. Consumer and business spending has dropped off significantly as people around the world self-quarantine.

Shops, restaurants, hotels and so many other businesses have temporarily closed their doors to hold on to as much cash as possible until the pandemic is over. For small- to mid-sized enterprises (SMEs), the impact is particularly strong because they generally have less than 20 days of cash reserves.
