What is Accounts Receivable Funding?
Accounts Receivable Funding is a way to ensure your business has the cash it needs to operate and grow. It works by tapping into the money hidden in your accounts receivable ledger.
If you have invoiced other businesses and are waiting for payment, this is effectively usable credit and it is a shame to borrow at high interest to make ends meet when you technically have the money on your balance sheet. So instead of entering into a term loan requiring regular repayments, a business can use its accounts receivable book to get money upfront, instead of waiting weeks or months for an invoice to be paid. Businesses can meet many of their funding needs, including major investments, using this flexible form of finance.
How Does It Work?
- After setting up a funding account, invoices are emailed or uploaded to us. TIM will then transfer up to 90% of the face value of the invoice in to your account within 24 hours.
- When the invoice is paid in full by your debtor, your business will receive the remaining balance less a small discount fee charged.
- No upfront fees.
How Much Money Can You Access?
You can draw down on funds at any time and for any amount (minimum: $100,000) provided you have at least sufficient outstanding invoices to provide for the amount you require.
The amount of funding you can access is directly correlated to your current receivables ledger, not your past sales and not your debt position of the business.
As your debtor/s pay their invoices as per your current payment terms, you are then able to repeat the process of re-drawing down the funds you require, over and over. The TIM “cash flow loan” or invoice finance as we like to call it, can be utilised as and when you need it and you can access up to $5.0 million for your business at any one time.
We offer flexible funding facilities ranging from $100,000 to $5.0 million.
Accounts Receivable Funding Offers A Great Solution To:
For small and medium size businesses that need working capital to keep growing
Businesses with annual revenue of at least $1.0 million and who have at least 4 regular paying customers
For businesses that are coming out of a tough trading environment that need cash today to bridge the gap between invoicing customers and getting paid

Why should I go with TIM?
We have funded over half a billion dollars to over 350 Australian businesses representing 22,000+ invoices.
Here are just a few of the many benefits of working with TIM:
Low Risk – Protection against your client not paying you or defaulting on payment
If you issue invoices and your client (the debtor) fails to pay, and your business has not committed a fraudulent transaction, then TIMSecure™ steps in and protects you and covers up to 90% of the funding provided as well as the legal costs to chase your client (debtor). This is unlike business loans where you run the risk of losing your business as well as personal assets in the event of default by your client.
With TIM you are not locked into repayments on a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule. In fact, there are no repayments at all because TIM is not a bank or like other ‘unsecured’ cash flow lenders and does not force businesses into ongoing loan facilities with fixed repayment terms. All you pay is a low pre-agreed fee and only at the time when your client pays their invoice/s.
No Hidden Fees
Extra fees are so common in business lending that SMEs have got used to them – but they shouldn’t accept them! It’s worth looking at a short, non-exhaustive list of fees TIM does NOT charge compared to other lenders.
Available to all Australian businesses
TIM’s invoice finance facility is available to every Australian business that invoices other businesses (B2B). We offer flexible funding facilities ranging from $100,000 to $5.0 million. Even if you can’t get a business loan or overdraft, you can qualify for invoice financing as it is based on your current sales, not your past.
Fully Flexible Option without Long Lock-in Periods
Flexible and tailored funding solution for your business. Your business is not burdened with long ongoing contracts and repayment schedules. You can raise the cash flow against your debtors ledger whenever it suits you and your requirements.
Easy & fast application process
Apply online from the comfort of your home or business, no unnecessary paper-work. Get up to 90% of your invoices paid within 24-hours of approval. Our simple online system gives you full control over your financing.
