Business Financing

It is a known fact that every business needs Working Capital. Without sufficient cashflow, a business cannot function. Some of the most common needs for working capital are:

  • wages and salaries,
  • 13th cheques or year-end bonuses,
  • inventory or stock,
  • raw materials, or
  • rent and other operational expenses.

Solving cash flow challenges and managing the amount of working capital you have on hand is a necessary part of every business owner’s job.

If your business is at a point where you need temporary working capital to help relieve strain on your bank balance or to help you seize additional growth opportunities, it’s time to consider Bridgement Business Finance – a solution to your working capital issues.

Short Term Business Loans for working capital management

While there is a range of options available for business owners looking for a loan to help with their working capital management, business loans can be difficult to obtain and take a long time to process.

South Africa’s major banks offer a range of loans for businesses. They offer short term and long-term loans, as well as specialized loans for equipment and vehicles. But applying for a business loan through a bank is an arduous process that takes a long time.

You may have to meet a specific set of stringent requirements and you will need to provide supporting documentation along with your application. Many banks require a range of documents including business plans, financial statements tax records, and even financial forecasts. You might even have to sign surety and provide assets as collateral.

Once your application is submitted, banks can take up to two months to inform you of your application status. Once approved, you will still need to wait for the money to be transferred to your account. All in all, a bank loan is not ideal for the business owner who requires a short-term loan to solve an immediate working capital need.
