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.

Why Your Business Should Choose TIM
Over the last few years, TIM. has paid more than three quarters of a billion dollars to over 350 Australian businesses, based on 22,000+ invoices.
Here are some of the reasons so many SMEs choose TIM:
It’s low risk
Due to the requirement for security, many other forms of business finance can be risky. But with TIM your invoice is the only security you need, and we offer protection against the possibility of that invoice going unpaid. Our TIMSecure™ system ensures that if you debtor fails to pay, you’re covered. Provided you have acted legally in your invoicing, TIMSecure™ covers up to 90% of the funding and can also help with legal costs associated with chasing a bad debtor. So with TIM, neither your business, your home, or your reputation is ever on the line.
It’s low cost
With no interest charged, no upfront fees and no repayment schedule to worry about, our accounts receivable funding is the ultimate low cost, practical way to access business finance. TIM is not a bank and is not like other ‘unsecured’ cash flow lenders: we don’t not force our clients into agreeing long term debts that will cost them dearly for years to come.
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.
It’s available to all
Because TIM’s accounts receivables funding is not dependent on assets or credit ratings, it is available to far more business than alternatives such as a bank loan or unsecured business loan. Every Australian business that invoices other businesses (B2B) can use our service to access flexible funding facilities ranging from $100K to $5M. If your SME has been rejected when seeking a business loan or overdraft despite trading healthily, we absolutely won’t hold that against you.
There are no restrictive contracts or long lock-in periods
We offer a flexible and tailored funding solution. Rather than using long contracts and strict repayment schedules to cover ourselves at the expense of our customers, we let businesses decide when they need funds, and when to raise cash against their outstanding invoices. If you want to use TIM only occasionally, that’s fine too.
Our application process is quick and easy
We’re a ‘Next Gen’ business finance provider. You apply to TIM online and our user-friendly software allows you to manage your account, raise finance and draw down funds as required.
