What is Debtor Finance?
Debtor finance is a smart way of getting your business the cash it needs to operate, invest and grow. All businesses have a series of regular outgoings and payment obligations, from wages and supplier bills to rent, energy costs and taxes. On top of that, they sometimes need to find money in order to invest, for example in new equipment.
No business can afford to be late on its payments, so when the bank account runs dry, many resort to borrowing the cash they need but business overdrafts and unsecured loans are expensive – especially given that your business is most likely already owed the money it needs, so why take on debt? Most businesses have tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars tied up in unpaid invoices at any one time. Debtor Finance unlocks that money by receiving the cash from those invoices as soon as they are issued. So much money is tied up in invoices nowadays, that a trading business can often meet major finance requirements in this cost effective way.

How much money can I get?
A typical debtor finance arrangement with TIM would see our clients get up to 90% of their whole debtors book – in cash. The balance is paid to your business (less a small discount fee to TIM) when your debtors pay their invoices.
Get in touch with us to find out how much money you could raise today.
Ok, how much does this REALLY cost?
TIM has no application fees to establish a Funding Account, there no upfront fees levied when getting cash for an invoice, and there are no interest repayments.
It just doesn’t work that way. Only when your clients pay their invoices will you be charged a pre-agreed fee on the invoices funded. It comes straight out of the payment so you don’t need to find the cash. Think of it as giving your customers a discount for early settlement.
Why Debtor Finance
Solve your business cash flow needs with flexible, fair funding.
There are all kinds of reasons why businesses are seeking to avoid loans and bank overdrafts (assuming you get approved for a business loan) – which are restrictive, often linked to property security, and commit a borrower to long months of regular repayments. That’s why Australian business are now securing debtor finance of over $60 billion each year using their accounts receivable. Debtor finance is the smart option for Australian SMEs.
No Hidden Fees
No upfront Application fees, no property security required and no hidden fees.
It’s 100% Flexible
We’ll provide the flexibility you require in order to manage your cash flows. No long lock-in contracts either.
Funding In 24 Hours
Don’t wait weeks or months for your money.
We’ve arranged funding for clients against multiple debtors and on more than 22,000 invoices, now approaching three quarters of a billion dollars to Australian businesses.
The benefits of working with TIM include:
Easy & fast
At TIM, we move fast and keep bureaucracy to a minimum: you apply online, set up an easy-to-use account, and get up to 90% of your invoices paid within 24-hours of approval. You choose which invoices or debtors to submit, and securely control your financing from your computer, tablet or smartphone.
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 restrictive contracts
Debtor finance with TIM is all about flexibility. We don’t burden businesses with long contracts and long repayment schedules. Instead, our easy-to-use account gives you full control of your cash flow and funding, allowing you to pick which invoices you want to offer for financing.
With a business loan, you run the risk of losing your business and your personal assets if you can’t pay the lender back. Therefore, some SME owners worry about what will happen if an invoice they have funded through TIM is not paid on time. The answer is that TIMSecure™ steps in and protects you.
Providing your business has acted within the law, TIMSecure™ covers up to 90% of the funding on a defaulted invoice due to debtor insolvency and can also cover the legal costs of chasing a debtor who fails to pay.
Available to all
TIM’s debtor finance facility is not dependent on assets or credit ratings. Debtor Finance is based on your current sales, not your past, so if you are trading well and have good clients, you can raise cash even if you’ve been turned down for a business loan or overdraft.
TIM’s debtor finance is available to every Australian business that invoices other businesses (B2B), with flexible funding facilities ranging from $100,000 to $5.0 million available.
