The Leaders in Fee Funding for Professional Service firms, via access to multiple Funders


What is Fee Funding?

Managing cash flow is critical for any business, irrespective of the economic cycle.

In difference to ‘factoring, discounting & receivables’ financing, your firm receives 100% of the Tax Invoice being funded and your clients pay by monthly instalments from three (3) to twelve (12) months, including interest costs. The Funder manages the monthly ‘client instalments’.

Given 65%+ of business clients use ‘insurance premium’ funding, many of your clients would be familiar and comfortable with Fee Funding if offered.

What are the benefits of Fee Funding?

The upside for your practice is monies in the bank more quickly; enhanced cash flow; and no debtor management distractions, thus allowing staff to concentrate on core accounting & advisory activities.

Offering Fee Funding as a payment option at the time of invoicing reduces the ability for clients to delay sorting payment. If timed correctly, using Fee Funding often results in fees owed being receipted well within the typical 21 to 30 days payment terms.

Fee Funding is also brilliant for start-up situations where cash flow may not be sufficient to pay accountancy fees in full, but more than sufficient to fund monthly instalments.

It’s important to recognise that Fee Funding is ‘limited security’ funding, with ‘recourse’ for any client ‘instalment defaults’. ‘Recourse’ is viewed as back-up security for the Funder. As such, Funders will assess applications on the basis of the borrower’s credit history.

Why the need for two (2) or more Funder relationship?

Each Funder has different acceptance criteria and application processes, depending on the financial status of each borrower and the amount being funded.

In addition, Funders will typically approve an initial ‘funding cap’ for your practice and work to increase this ‘cap’ as a successful relationship develops. Having at least two (2) relationships provides greater Fee Funding flexibility.

Plus, we’ve witnessed a number of Funders either amend acceptance criteria or exit the market space unexpectedly, leaving accountancy practices without a complete Fee Funding resource.

Longevity of accessing Fee Funding is about accountancy practices building a good relationship with at least two Funders, plus ensuring clients have a healthy attitude towards meeting their repayment obligations.
