Amalgamated Bank has teamed up with Newtek, "The Small Business Authority," to bring you the best in class solutions for your business.
Newtek Business Credit is a full-service commercial finance operation delivering cash flow and related solutions to small and middle-market businesses across the country. As a non-bank enterprise, business credit is distinguished by its flexible facilities, ranging in size from $50,000 to $1,500,000. Funds may be used to satisfy a range of business needs, including:
- Working capital purposes
- Meet payroll needs
- Take advantage of trade discounts
- Extend credit to customers
- Fuel business growth
- Pay taxes
The approach Newtek employs is that of a partner, your partner. Newtek makes an effort to understand the individual needs of every client, and to support and service those needs through a professional staff that values every relationship.
Start-up and existing businesses alike can always benefit from improved cash flow. Newtek's financing program provides you with capital today, on outstanding balances (receivables) due from your customers.
As an additional service provided to clients, Newtek will monitor collection activity from your customers, which includes detailed reporting, allowing you to improve collection time while reducing bad debts.
Clients will also benefit from Newtek's credit protection program. Newtek assumes the credit risk on accounts that are approved and financed. They investigate and monitor the credit worthiness of your customers on an ongoing basis.
Newtek provides a complete paper-based billing service for both financing and non-financing clients. They will print and mail statements to your customers detailing account activity and balances. This service also affords you the opportunity to include advertisements or promotional materials along with the statements.
The Benefits of Accounts Receivable Financing
Continuous Source of Operating Capital
Unlike other types of financing, A/R financing focuses on your sales, not your balance sheet. As sales increase, more working capital becomes available to meet the demands of operating your business. Accounts Receivable Financing provides a continuous, long-term source of funds on a short-term basis.
Early Payment Discounts
A/R financing can provide you the funds necessary to pay suppliers early and receive discounts.
With more working capital available, you can buy in larger quantities and save money through supplier volume discounts.
Because A/R financing is not a loan, no debt is incurred, making it easier to obtain other types of financing.
A/R financing allows you to pay taxes and bills on time. By establishing a good credit rating, you may qualify for better terms from suppliers and on loans.
Quick and Easy Funding
The A/R financing application process typically takes less time and effort than other forms of financing.
The Ability to Focus on Company Growth
A/R financing frees up valuable time and resources spent in collections, administration and bookkeeping, so that you can focus on increasing sales and expanding your company.
Access to Reporting
Our A/R financing program provides you with detailed reports that help you track customers' invoices and payment history.
Why Finance My Receivables?
Instead of waiting 30, 60 or 90 days to be paid by your customers, Newtek provides you with capital today to meet payroll, take advantage of vendor discounts, hire additional staff, improve your credit rating, pay taxes, or to fulfill many other needs.
What types of receivables are eligible for financing?
Unlike other companies, Newtek will finance both business-to-consumer receivables as well as business-to-business receivables. In order to be eligible, the goods or services must be delivered or completed, and accepted by a U.S.-based customer.
Will financing my receivables jeopardize my relationship with my customers?
No. Accounts Receivable financing is a widely used and accepted form of financing your business. Further, Newtek keeps direct contact with your customers at a minimum.
