Invoice discounting is a great way of ensuring your business has the healthy cash flow it needs to operate and thrive. It can also be a smart way to get funds the business requires to invest in growth without getting tied into a loan with a fixed repayment schedule at high interest rates.
Flexible invoice discounting offers an alternative to business overdrafts and unsecured loans by leveraging the thousands of dollars which businesses have tied up in unpaid invoices. By unlocking the cash in its accounts receivable ledger and getting that money today, a business can often meet all its finance requirements without having to sign up to a loan or give away equity.
TIM charges no upfront application fees to set up an account, nor does TIM charge weekly or monthly interest and principal repayment fees like a traditional unsecured business loan. All you pay is a small percentage of the invoice value funded (called a discount fee) and only when your debtors pay their invoices. What this means is that you make no ongoing interest repayments at all. The actual discount fee charged varies based on the size and value of the business and the debtors being funded, suffice to say that it usually works out cheaper than taking out an unsecured business loan or even an unsecured overdraft facility. Yes, that’s correct – simple and fair.

How much money can I get?
Typically, you receive up to 90% of your invoice/s value up front, in cash. You then receive the balance of the invoice/s, less the TIM agreed discount fee when your debtor/s pay your invoice/s.
You can access as much as 90% of your total accounts receivable ledger, at any given time. Our easy-to-use calculator can help you work out how much money you could raise.
So, where are the hidden charges?
With TIM, there aren’t any. Not only is establishing a Funding Account completely free, there are no upfront fees on the process of getting cash. What’s more, invoice discounting is not a loan, so there are no interest repayments to be made.
You choose which invoices to fund with TIM and TIM will deduct a small discount fee only when your client pays their invoices, which credits your funding account allowing you to redraw to your approved Facility Limit for the new invoices you raise. You never need to worry about finding the money to repay the funding or the fee.
TIM really is that simple and fair.
Why Choose Invoice Discounting
It’s the flexible, fair way to meet your business funding needs.
Australian businesses traditionally relied on loans and bank overdrafts for their funding. This meant that they were forced to sign up to years of interest rates and repayments even when they only needed to cover a gap in their cash flow. No wonder that Australian businesses have embraced invoice discounting to the tune of $60 billion a year. Australian SMEs who use invoice discounting are getting a far better and fairer deal.
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.
Our fair and easy system has proved extremely popular. We’ve arranged funding on more than 22,000 invoices, handing over three quarters of a billion dollars to Australian businesses, months before they would have seen the cash from clients.
The benefits of working with TIM include:
Available to all
Your credit history is not important and we don’t care if the banks will give you a loan or not. Because your invoice is a guarantee that the money is on the way, invoice discounting with TIM is available to every Australian business that invoices other businesses (B2B). Flexible funding facilities ranging from $100,000 to $5.0 million are available to Australian SMEs with suitable receivables on their ledger.
Not only is TIM’s single discount system fair, it’s highly cost effective. We don’t charge interest, and we don’t lock our clients into re-payment schedules that lead to extra charges when they aren’t met. And there are no application or set-up fees.
Unlike banks, who will take your business and your personal assets if you can’t pay them back, TIM’s only claim is on the invoices you offer for discounting. We even have a proprietary system, TIMSecure™ to protect you if your client doesn’t pay. Provided you acted within the law, you can rest safe in the knowledge that TIMSecure™ can cover up to 90% of the funding on a defaulted invoice and can also help to chase a debtor who failed to pay.
No restrictive contracts or long lock-in periods
TIM offers flexible invoice discounting. It’s what we were set up to do, with an easy-to-use online account that gives businesses full control of their cash flow. That means no long lock-in periods or re-payment schedules. Your funding is automatically repaid as invoices are settled.
Easy & fast
Getting your money to you fast is our priority. 90% of invoices are paid within 24-hours of approval. And with our online account giving you full control, you draw down funds when you need to.
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.
